What are Cookies

These text files allow a website to remember your device and how you interacted with the website, which is useful for a number of different purposes.
For example, cookies can be used to remember username and password information so that you don’t have to re-enter all of your login information every time you visit a site you frequently log in to.
Other functions of cookies are to provide custom advertising to users based on searches and personal interests, as well as site performance cookies that enhance website use by remembering things such as custom video streaming or volume settings you have selected while using the website in the past.
What’s a Cookies Policy
A Cookies Policy is a policy that provides users with detailed information about the types of cookies a website uses, how these cookies are used, and how users can control cookies placement through limiting or forbidding a website to place cookies on his/her electronic device.
Cookies Policy Requirements in the EU
While pop-up boxes and banner notifications alert users that cookies are being used and can allow for an option to opt out within that box or banner, this kind of policy is where further information can be detailed and accessible to your visitors at any time.
The EU’s GDPR requires that you get consent to use most cookies, and having a cookie notification is the perfect way to do this.
