The new Act on Electronic Communications (No. 452/2021 Coll.), which entered into force on February 1, 2022, also regulates storing and gaining access to data stored in the user’s end device, the so-called cookies.

For this purpose, the law generally requires demonstrable user consent, with the exception of the so-called technical or functional cookies, the sole purpose of which is to transmit or facilitate the transmission of a message via the network, or if it is absolutely necessary for the information society service provider to provide the information society service explicitly requested by the user.

Please note that the Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Postal Services, in cooperation with the Office for Personal Data Protection of the Slovak Republic, has drawn up guidelines on obtaining user consent, which should help website operators set up their websites correctly so that obtaining the user’s consent to the use of cookies is correct and legal.
