EU court of justice enforces cookie policies limits

Both Vueling and Planet49 received fines for forcing user/or predefined consent on their websites.

The General Data Protection Regulation included some specific requirements for consent handling.

One of them is that the consent must be freely obtained.

Planet49 and Vueling were pre-filling acceptances and/or forcing user to accept certain uses of their data on their website.

Planet49 was pre filling choices in order to “encourage” customers to accept certain uses of their data.

This practice was considered as not transparent and as a way of making consent not free.

Under similar arguments the Spanish Airliner Vueling was forcing user to accept their policies on use of data in order to access their website.

both decisions were aligned with the previously defined guidelines from the French and the UK data protection authorities making pre filling and forcing non acceptable practices.
