Cookie Policy Explained

How to get a GDPR compliant cookie policy?

What does a GDPR compliant cookie policy contain? And how do you create one? Let's take you through the fundamentals.

What is a cookie policy?

A GDPR compliant cookie policy is a notice to your website visitors about which cookies your website uses, what type of data they collect, for what purposes this data is processed and for how long time the cookies will continue to be stored on the visitors’ computers. 

The cookie policy is typically a part of the privacy policy but dedicated to data collected by cookies.

It is advisable to have a dynamically generated cookie policy on your website, i.e. a policy that is updated with each scan of your website, so your site is transparent about which data is collected and why.
