GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) came into force in May 2018.  It says that consent for data processing has to be given by users through a “clear affirmative action” and it must be freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous. This is a new introduction with GDPR and means that a user has to take a specific action to consent, such as clicking Accept or ticking a box.

Compliance with this law need not be expensive or complicated.

Simply, websites have to seek permission to use cookies. The only cookies that do not require consent are those that are necessary to fulfill the users’ request, for example, remembering the contents of your shopping basket while you browse. 

This site complies with the law by informing the users on the first page visited and in the Privacy Policy.

Sites are also required to give information on the use of cookies, usually in the ‘Privacy Policy’ wording. This does not need to be long or complex.
