Recently, the Council of Ministers approved seven legislative decrees for the adaptation of the domestic legislation to the European one. Among the approved decrees, there is the text of the adaptation of national legislation to the Regulation (EU) 2016/679, also known as GDPR, which last May caused many problems for several companies.
A study by the University of Oxford's Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism analyzed more than 200 European news websites, comparing visits in April (before the GDPR) with those in July (after the GDPR). Overall, the number of third-party cookies on those websites fell by 22%, with a significant drop for advertising and marketing cookies (minus 14%) and social media (minus 9%). The number of websites hosting social media content, such as Facebook and Twitter sharing buttons, has also decreased by 7%.
