About this Episode

In the Fashion ID case, the European Court of Justice decides that website owners are now joint controllers with the provider of the third-party cookie, and that website owners are responsible for issuing the privacy notices for third party cookies and for collecting any consents that are required. And, to make things a bit more complicated, the ECJ comes up with a new approach to analysing the data journey and who is the controller! All this and more in this episode of GDPR Now!

GDPR Now! Is brought to you by This Is DPO.
