Advice from the Data Protection Authority on Obtaining Consent Using Cookie Banners

The Data Protection Authority provided advice and analysis on tracking websites, typically done through cookies or similar technology. 

Some key points the Data Protection Authority emphasized regarding consent using cookies:

  • When collecting and processing personal information using cookies, you must have a legal basis according to privacy laws (such as GDPR). This is in addition to the requirements under Norwegian cookie regulations in the Electronic Communications Act.
  • Use of analysis and tracking on websites often involves the processing of personal information, even if the names or identities of visitors are unknown, as the analytics tool collects extensive information about visitors.
  • Strict requirements exist for obtaining consent according to GDPR. If consent is the basis for analysis and tracking, such as using a cookie banner or box, consent must adhere to the rules to be valid.
  • There are requirements for how consent is given, such as requiring an active action (like pressing a button or similar).
  • It should be as easy to decline as it is to accept, and users who do not consent should not face negative consequences.

There are many analysis and tracking tools on the market, but that does not necessarily mean it is legal to use them on your website. Below are some guidelines from the Data Protection Authority that we can adhere to.

  1. Adhere to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

  2. Minimize Data Collection

  3. Do not rely on the cookie banner to save you

  4. Prevent unauthorized use of personal information from the website

  5. Some websites require more caution than others

  6. Prevent the flow of personal information to non-secure countries

  7. Be transparent

  8. Respect the rights of the visitors

  9. Educate yourself - and don't hesitate to ask for help
