Definition of Cookie Banner

A cookie banner is a notification that appears on a website to inform visitors about the site's use of cookies and obtain their consent for this.

This banner helps website owners comply with relevant laws, such as the GDPR and the ePrivacy Directive, which both require companies to obtain permission from website users before storing or collecting certain types of data.

By displaying a cookie banner and providing clear information about the cookies used by a website, businesses can ensure they are protecting their users' privacy.
