Specifically, the Updated Guide provides that cookie walls cannot be used, since they do not offer a valid alternative to consent. The AEPD stressed that these criteria are of particular importance in relation to cases where the denial of access would prevent the exercise of a right legally recognised to a user, such as when access to a website is the only means provided in order to exercise the right. In addition, the Updated Guide recalls that the EDPB established that continued browsing cannot constitute a valid way to obtain consent, and therefore Section 3.2.3(e) of the Updated Guide was amended accordingly.
Lastly, the AEPD recalled that the Updated Guide must be implemented no later than 31 October 2020.
