Do I need a cookie policy on my website?

No, you do not need a cookie policy on your website. However, some laws such as the ePrivacy Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) require websites to detail their use of cookies to users.


To comply with these laws, websites need to provide users with the following information:


  • What cookies the site uses
  • Why they use those cookies
  • Who provides the cookies (aka the cookie vendors)
  • How users can set their cookie preferences


This can be done by dedicating a section of your privacy policy to cookies, or by having a separate cookie policy.
