Do I need a cookie notice?


Do I need a cookie policy on my website?

Every website that collects user data should have cookie consent banners or privacy notices. This applies to businesses and websites around the world. Due to the borderless nature of the internet, if someone in the EU — where the law was passed — were to visit your website and have their data collected, then the law (and the penalties for not complying with it) would apply to your website. GDPR law applies to websites and plugins that process and store data. This includes contact forms, email marketing outreach, and membership plugins.

What are cookies?

Cookies are bits of data that are created and stored (as text files) when websites load — it’s how information is collected from website visitors.

Cookies have multiple purposes, such as providing personalised user experiences or displaying ads.
