Frequently Asked Questions

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is created and stored on a website user’s browser when visiting a website that uses cookies. Cookies are used to track information about the visitor that can notably be used to allow the website to function to its full potential, provide a better user experience by taking into account user preferences and, in some cases, allow for remarketing.

What is a cookie policy?

A cookie policy is a document that lets your website visitors know that you are using cookies and gives them all the information that they might need in regards to the processing of their personal data and your usage. This includes letting them know what types of cookies you are using and for what purpose and informing them that they can manage their preferences at any time.

It should be separate from your privacy policy and easily accessible, as user consent is essential in order to comply with privacy laws, especially the GDPR.

Do I need a cookie policy on my website?

Absolutely. If you are using cookies on your website, then you should have the appropriate cookie policy as your users have the right to know that you wish to collect their personal information.

Providing them with a detailed and easy-to-read cookie policy will ensure that you are being transparent and that you have their clear, unequivocal consent to your use of cookies.

What should be included in a cookie policy?

Your cookie policy should, at a minimum, include the following:

Definition of cookies: not everyone is familiar with cookies and it can be hard for someone to consent to their use if they do not understand their purpose. In a sentence or two, take the time to explain what cookies are in layman’s terms.

State that you are using cookies: Mention which types of cookies you use and for what purpose: this includes both first-party and third-party cookies. You should let your users know what information is collected, what it is used for, and how long that data is stored.

Let your users know how they can manage their preferences: it should be easy for your users to control what types of cookies they wish to allow, disable all cookies or withdraw consent that was previously given. When it comes to third-party cookies, it is good practice to link to their respective cookie policies.

How do you draft a cookie policy?

Drafting a cookie policy should not be taken lightly, as it needs to take into account applicable privacy laws, which come with their own set of challenges and requirements if your website or application offers goods or services to users located in the European Union or monitors their behavior.

You can of course retain the services of a privacy lawyer familiar with the current legal requirements applicable to your website. You could also use our cookie policy generator which is automatically updated to keep up with the ever-evolving global privacy laws, including the GDPR.

Whatever you do, do not copy and paste a cookie policy from another website as it needs to be tailored and specific to your business and the cookies that you use.

Where should you display your cookie policy?

Your cookie policy should be easy to find for new website visitors in order for them to be able to give their consent to your use of cookies before they start using your website.

A best practice is to use a cookie banner that automatically appears when someone lands on your website; it is typically displayed at the bottom of the screen and requires that a user checks a box consenting to cookies before being able to navigate the website. This cookie consent pop-up should include a hyperlink to the page that hosts your cookie policy.

You should also make reference to your cookie policy in your privacy policy and include a link in your website footer or your application’s menu so that your users can manage their cookie preferences.

How do I set a cookie notification?

You don’t need to know how to code to add a cookie pop-up to your website. Simply use our cookie consent banner generator to create a fully-customized banner that won’t slow down your website.

In just a few seconds, you will be given a few lines of code that you can simply copy and paste to your website for a responsive and GDPR-compliant cookie banner to appear.
