The Belgian DPA has imposed a fine of €15000 on a website specialized in legal news for their noncompliant cookie management and privacy policy. The Belgian DPA found that their privacy policy lacked transparency and infringed the rules on information to be provided; and also that the website failed to comply with its obligations in terms of consent (the principle of “opt in”)  and withdrawal of consent.
