Granular, on scroll, on continued browsing… Cookie consent guidelines may differ from state to state, let’s find out which rules apply in Italy.
Yes, the Italian Data Protection Authority (the “Garante Privacy”) currently recognizes “performing a scrolling action” as valid indication of affirmative consent.
However, please note that this rule may change in the future, and align with that of other data protection authorities (e.g. UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium and Greece) that do not consider consent via scrolling as valid.
Currently, yes. Anyway, as for the consent on scroll, this rule may soon change as well and align with that of other data protection authorities.
This feature is required to users who operate in the UK, Germany, France and Ireland. While other countries may suggest it as best practice, at the moment Italy doesn’t explicitly require the use of the Reject button.
Yes. Except for exempt categories, cookies must be blocked until users have given their consent.
No, at the moment you don’t need to give users more granular control on which categories of trackers to give consent to.
Not at the moment. A technical cookie is sufficient proof of consent and may be relied upon to meet the Italy’s requirement of keeping track of the consent acquired.
It’s important to note that some EU Data Protection Authorities now require that records of consent – rather than simply proof – be kept.
