A French newspaper. EDPB Joins the Dots of ePrivacy and GDPR. On 12 March 2019 at its Eighth Plenary Session, the European Data Protection Board (“EDPB”) adopted its Opinion 5/2019 on the interplay between the ePrivacy Directive (“ePD”) and the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

EDPB Joins the Dots of ePrivacy and GDPR

Austrian DPA Issues Decision on Validity of Cookie Consent Solution. Cookie walls don’t comply with GDPR, says Dutch DPA. Cookie walls that demand a website visitor agrees to their internet browsing being tracked for ad-targeting as the “price” of entry to the site are not compliant with European data protection law, the Dutch data protection agency clarified yesterday.

The DPA said it has received dozens of complaints from internet users who had had their access to websites blocked after refusing to accept tracking cookies — so it has taken the step of publishing clear guidance on the issue. It also says it will be stepping up monitoring, adding that it has written to the most-complained-about organizations (without naming any names) — instructing them to make changes to ensure they come into compliance with GDPR. Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation, which came into force last May, tightens the rules around consent as a legal basis for processing personal data — requiring it to be specific, informed and freely given in order for it to be valid under the law.

In order for Google Analytics to determine that two distinct hits belong to the same user, a unique identifier, associated with that particular user, must be sent with each hit.

Cookies and User Identification  

The analytics.js library accomplishes this via the Client ID field, a unique, randomly generated string that gets stored in the browsers cookies, so subsequent visits to the same site can be associated with the same user. By default, analytics.js uses a single, first-party cookie named _ga to store the Client ID, but the cookie's name, domain, and expiration time can all be customized. Other cookies created by analytics.js include _gid, AMP_TOKEN and _gac_<property-id>. These cookies store other randomly generated ids and campaign information about the user. Using cookies allows analytics.js to identify unique users across browsing sessions, but it cannot identify unique users across different browsers or devices.

High-Tech Bridge's study analyzed the 1,000 largest global companies from the US and the EU to collect data for their research, via a "large-scale discovery and non-intrusive assessment of their external web and mobile applications, SSL certificates, web software and unprotected cloud storage.
