What is a Cookies Policy?

The purpose of a Cookies Policy is to let your end users know that you’re using cookies on your website or app.

At minimum, your Cookies Policy should address the following:

The types of cookies you’re using.
How you’re using the cookies.
How your end users can manage cookie settings on their device(s).
Simply put, your Cookies Policy is where your end users can find detailed information about your cookies usage and how they can manage cookie settings on their devices.

Why You Need a Cookies Policy

Unless your business is based in the EU or is specifically targeted at EU citizens, you’re not required by law to post a Cookies Policy on your website. Simply having a clause that addresses your cookies usage in your Privacy Policy is enough.

However, if your business is based in the EU or targets EU-based citizens, you’re required by the EU Cookies Directive to post a separate Cookies Policy on your website.

The GDPR also has requirements for businesses that collect or use the personal information of people in the EU, and most cookies collect personal information.
