Despite the pandemic, International Data Protection Day on 28 January was an opportunity for the national commission for data protection (CNPD) to publish three educational tools.

For the past 16 years, International Data Protection Day has been held on 28 January, in honour of the opening for signature of the Council of Europe's Convention 108--the forerunner of the GPDR.

The CNPD is providing information via three tools on its recommendations.

1. The conference "Cookies: do I want my privacy or do I have nothing to hide? Six experts and researchers will provide their expertise on this subject. You will have to wait until early February to find out how to register.

2. A practical sheet on cookies. After its guidance document on cookies and trackers, published at the end of October, the CNPD has published a practical sheet aimed at both the general public and professionals who need to ensure the compliance of their websites and applications.

3. Ten tips on data protection: share as little personal data as possible, learn how to control the security and privacy settings of your accounts or read the privacy policies. The CNPD repeats the good practices it had already included in its brochure "Your data? Your rights!".
