Last week NOYB issued more that 500 complaints under the GDPR to companies engaging in their self-described reign of “cookie banner terror”!
NYOB developed some ingenious software that automates the complaint process, which could lead to thousands of such auto-complaints. However, NYOB is offering companies a chance to resolve the issue as they identify it, which is pretty cordial if you ask me.
A company found in violation by their software first gets an informal complaint with an opportunity to change banner settings to come into compliance (with instructions on how to do it!). If they don’t play ball, a formal complaint is issued and the wacky hijinks ensue!
Their process from auto find – to draft complaint/warning – to opportunity to cure – to formal complaint, is illustrated in the figure below, which you can find on the NYOB site HERE.
