One of our series of complaints on cookie banners.

Date Summary
Decision by CNPD

Claims that under the ePrivacy Directive the CNIL would be competent for amazon.fr. Regarding the GDPR violations the DPA considers the complaint too vague and states that it previously already issued a decision against Amazon and therefore cannot issues a new decision.

DPA informed it is not competent for ePrivacy and has also decided in a similar case in the past

The DPA informed us that it cannot investigate a website with the French top level domain as it is primarily addressed to the French users. Additionally, the CNPD is not competent to monitor the correct application of the ePrivacy law. Finally, the CNPD already issued a decision regarding the processing of personal data (including personal data collected via cookies) for online behavioral purposes. However, due to secrecy, they could not disclose the decision.
