European Data Protection Law Review, Jahrgang 6 (2020), Ausgabe 1, Seite 137 - 142

Case C-673/17 Bundesverband der Verbraucherzentralen und Verbraucherverbände - Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverband e.V. v Planet49 GmbH, Judgment of the Court (Grand Chamber) of 1 October 2019 Consent of a website user, required for the lawful storage of information or access to information already stored, in the form of cookies, in his or her terminal equipment is not validly constituted by way of a pre-ticked checkbox, which the user must deselect to refuse consent. Conditions for the lawful storage and access are not to be interpreted differently according to whether or not the information stored or accessed on a website user’s terminal equipment qualifies as personal data. Information that the service provider must provide to a website user, prior to the storage of information in his or her terminal equipment, includes information on the duration of the operation of cookies and whether or not third parties may have access to it. Articles 2(f) and 5(3) of Directive 2002/58/EC – Articles 2(h) and 10 of Directive 95/46/EC – Articles 4(11) and 13 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679

An Overview of Recent Trends in Case Law at the Start of a New Era of Data Protection Law

Christopher Docksey, Hielke Hijmans

European Data Protection Law Review, Jahrgang 5 (2019), Ausgabe 3, Seite 300 - 316

In this article we discuss the main trends in the recent case law of the CJEU, following the three landmark cases of Digital Rights Ireland, Google Spain, and Schrems. The CJEU has followed a broad approach to scope and a strict approach to exceptions, ensuring that where personal information is processed there will be one or more controllers who will be accountable for such processing. The Court has also recognised that data protection requires a balancing with other fundamental rights such as freedom of expression, and has followed a common sense approach that allows personal information to be processed in a proportionate manner for legitimate purposes. We conclude that the case law has had a positive impact on the data protection legal framework and that the CJEU is likely to maintain its approach in order to ensure that the GDPR is fully effective. Keywords: Case Law, CJEU, Accountability, Fundamental Rights, GDPR
