Gaming companies violate Dutch online privacy laws

by | 23-01-2019 | News

The websites of Nintendo, EA, Ubisoft and Sony are in violation with the Dutch laws concerning cookies and personal data storage, according to a study by Dutch news source NU.nl. The sites fail to ask visitors for permission, nor do they inform about the use and storing of cookies on the visitor’s devices.

Cookies are used to track a person’s online history, enabling personalised advertisements. This is personal data, and therefore protected by law.

A website’s GDPR compliancy is easily checked with Cybersprint’s GDPR add-on to the Web module. It provides insights into an organisation’s online footprint as part of the Digital Risk Protection platform.
