Le Figaro is France’s largest circulation and oldest national daily newspaper, it started publishing in 1826, but times change and it is now one of the most popular French language news websites too.
In Summer 2021, Le Figaro was fined €50,000 (US$60,000) for failing to inform its website visitors about all the cookies placed on their devices & provide adequate information. Specifically, it was installing third-party advertising cookies without the users’ consent.
The French data protection regulator, the CNIL imposed the fines after checks showed that lefigaro.fr installed these cookies during 2020 and 2021.
The CNIL made it clear in its judgement that Le Figaro is jointly responsible together with the third party cookie vendors for any cookies on its site.
