Cookie Notice & Compliance for GDPR / CCPA
Cookie Notice Requirements under GDPR & CCPA
In addition to this, both laws also require that organisations obtain consent from users before placing cookies on their devices. This consent must be freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous, and must be obtained through a clear and transparent process.
Compliance with GDPR & CCPA
To ensure compliance with GDPR and CCPA, organisations should take the following steps:
- Update their cookie notice: Organisations should ensure that their cookie notice is clear, concise, and provides all of the required information, including details about the types of cookies that are being used, the data that is being collected, and the purposes for which it is being collected.
Best Practices for Cookie Notice and Compliance
In addition to the steps outlined above, there are several best practices that organisations can follow to ensure that their cookie notice and compliance efforts are effective:
- Make it easy to find: Place your cookie notice in a prominent location on your website, such as the footer, where users are most likely to see it.
- Use clear language: Avoid using technical jargon or complex language in your cookie notice, and instead use language that is easy to understand.
- Regularly review and update: Regularly review and update your cookie notice and consent mechanisms to ensure that they continue to meet the requirements of GDPR and CCPA.
