European Union Directive
"The storage of information or access to information already stored in the terminal equipment of the subscriber or user is only permitted if the particular subscriber or user has given his / her consent after clear and extensive information under paragraph 1 of Article 11 of the Law 2472/1997, as in force. The consent of the subscriber or user can be done through appropriate settings on the web browser or through another application. The above shall not prevent any technical storage or access for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication by electronic communication or which is necessary for the provision of a computer service explicitly requested by the user or the subscriber user. An Act of the Personal Data Protection Authority (APPR) specifies in particular how to provide information and to declare consensus ".
The European Directive 2009/136 / EC amending Directive 2002/58 / EC concerning the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy in electronic communications has recently been incorporated in Greek legislation. The incorporation took place through Law 4070/2012 (Electronic Communications, Transport, Public Works and Other Provisions), which in turn amends the applicable Law 3471/2006 (Privacy and privacy in the electronic communications sector ).
According to the amendment to the present paragraph 5 of art. 4 on "privacy":
'The use of electronic communications networks for the storage of information or for the acquisition of access to information stored in the subscriber or user terminal equipment, in particular the installation of spyware, hidden identifiers and other similar devices, is prohibited. Exceptionally, any technical storage or access, the sole purpose of which is to facilitate or facilitate the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network or which is only necessary for the provision of a service in the information society which it has specifically requested user or subscriber. In the latter case, the use of such provisions is only allowed if the specified subscriber or user is provided with clear and extensive information in accordance with Article 11 of Law 2472/1997 as in force and the data controller provides the subscriber or user with the right to refuse this treatment. An act of the Data Protection Authority shall specify in particular the arrangements for providing information, granting the right of refusal or seeking consent. "
Modified, match with no. 5, paragraph 3 of Directive 2009/136 / EC as follows:
"The storage of information or the acquisition of access to already stored information in the terminal equipment of a subscriber or user is allowed only if the subscriber or user has given his / her consent after clear and extensive information according to paragraph 1 of article 11 of Law 2472 / 1997, as in force. The consent of the subscriber or user can be given through appropriate settings in the web browser or through another application. The above shall not prevent any technical storage or access, the sole purpose of which is to carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network or which is necessary for the provision of an information society service explicitly requested by the user or subscriber. An Act of the Personal Data Protection Authority (APPR) specifies the modalities of providing information and declaring consent ".
Both the current and the new versions are applicable to all types of cookies and directly affect the full range of digital marketing and online advertising.
The new wording continues to require the user to be explicitly and extensively informed about the cookies to be installed on his device but also introduces the opt-in consent requirement from him in compliance with the European Fair enough. At the same time, however, it foresees the use of the relevant privacy settings in the user's browser as a legitimate way of obtaining consent.
The amendment excludes the need to obtain consent (while keeping the user informed) of all types of cookies that are necessary and necessary for the proper functioning of each website for the purpose of providing functional cookies.
The Position of the Personal Data Protection Authority
- The consent of the subscriber or user may first be given through the web site of the internet service provider using appropriate mechanisms (eg with pop-up windows). The acceptance of "cookies" can be made once for all cookies installed by the same service provider of the information society.
- Alternatively, as stated in Law 3471/2006, "consent may also be given through appropriate settings in the web browser or through another application". Caution! This setting only applies if the subscriber or user is consulted for each "cookie", and it does not mean consenting to accepting cookies in advance by default browser settings.
- For example, web browsers or other apps, which by definition reject third party cookies and require active choice on the part of users to accept both the placement and the continued transmission of information contained in cookies from specific websites , can provide valid and effective consent.
- On the contrary, if the browser's default settings allow all cookies to be accepted and action is required on the user to disable them, the requirements for the consent given in that article are not met.
- The requirements of the article are also not met by browser settings that allow the prior release of "cookies" by specific providers of information society services (eg via "black" lists pre-determined by the subscriber or user); or similar mechanisms that, although providing the subscriber or user with more choices, do not support their prior consent to receive "cookies" from non-blocked providers.
- The subscriber or user must be able to withdraw his / her consent in the same way he / she stated it. The text of the position also clearly distinguishes, and in conjunction with, an opinion issued by the Article 29 Working Party on 7/6, cookies installed for advertising and web analytics (google analytics - adwords remarketing). According to the text, both of these categories of cookies do not fall under the opt-out provided by law.
