Norway – The Norwegian Data Protection Authority recommends review of cookies and tracking mechanisms on websites
The Norwegian Data Protection Authority has recommended that all businesses review their websites for cookies or other tracking mechanisms. The recommendation was due to, inter alia, the fact that Sveriges Radio recently revealed that over 100 pharmacies have shared customers' personal data with Facebook.
The Norwegian Data Protection Authority otherwise emphasizes that the concern applies to both private and public websites. I do not think the recommendation is surprising, and my assumption is that enforcement of cookie regulations will become much more important in Norway in the future.
