Cookie policy setup

A cookie policy is what governs websites that use cookies. Cookies are used to store information about the user on their device, and they can be accessed by the website that created them. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires all websites to have a valid cookie policy in place. This blog post will cover if you need one, what happens if you don't have one, and how to create your own GDPR compliant version of it!


So do I Need a Cookie Policy?


Yes, you will need a cookie policy for your website. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in effect since May 25th, 2018 and it includes the requirement for websites to have a valid cookie policy on their site. In other words, if you do not have one, you could be heavily fined!
