WHY DO WE NEED YOUR EXPLICIT CONSENT TO USE THEM?

Sentence of the Grand Chamber of the Court of Justice of the European Union, 1st October 2019, and AEPD Guidance on the use of cookies, July 2020.

The sentence of the Grand Chamber of the Court of Justice of the European Union of 1st October 2019 must be interpreted as meaning that consent is not given in a valid way where the storage of information, or access to information already stored on the terminal equipment of the user of an internet website, through cookies, is authorised by means of a default tick box from which the user has to remove the tick if he wishes to refuse their use. Therefore, the authorisation must be based on explicit consent by means of an explicit acceptance check, a user refusal check and a check for more information on the cookies displayed.

This interpretation cannot vary depending on whether or not the information stored or consulted on the user’s terminal of a website consists of personal data. 

The Grand Chamber of the Court of Justice of the European Union also states in this sentence that the information which the service provider must provide to the user of an internet website has to include the length of time the cookies will remain active and the possibility for third parties to access the information they store. This requirement is set out in the amended version of Directive 2009/136, which amends Article 5(3) of Directive 2002/58/EU, and in the AEPD Guidance of July 2020.    

In relation to the possibility that the user can reject the use of cookies, it should be borne in mind that if you reject or delete cookies when browsing the Web, we cannot maintain your preferences, some features of the pages will not be operational, we cannot offer you personalised services and each time you browse our website we will have to ask you again for your authorisation to use cookies.

If you still decide to modify the configuration of your access to the website, you should know that it is possible to delete cookies or prevent this information from being recorded on your computer at any time by modifying the configuration parameters of your browser:

Internet Explorer cookie settings.

Firefox cookie settings.

Google Chrome cookie settings.
