EU Cookies Directive and GDPR

The game has changed since the cookie law was first introduced, and your cookie practices might need to change, as well.

Last year, the European Commission released its proposal to make changes to the existing regulation on the ePrivacy Directive and to replace it with a new regulation.

The GDPR has changed a number of things when it comes to your use of cookies and how you can get consent to do so.

What is the GDPR?

The ePrivacy Directive required all websites operating in the EU to display cookie notifications on all pages of a site using cookies that need informed consent.

Some banners require active interaction by asking the user to choose between accepting and refusing the site’s cookies, while others are in form of notice only.

The latter presumes that continued use of the site signifies user consent.

But, the ePrivacy Directive didn’t meet its objectives.

Lawmakers didn’t predict the rise of social media and the use of smartphone apps. A rise in behavioral advertising and online tracking all impact privacy and confidentiality of web users.

Does this mean that your current Cookie Notice is not going to work under the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation, also known as GDPR is legislation that regulates how websites handle personal data. This applies to all European Union states.

The GDPR impacts internal processes, workflows, and business systems.

This law gives consumers more rights over the information that is collected, used, and stored about them. Furthermore, the regulation stipulates strict requirements on user consent, documentation, transparency, and handling procedures.

The Cookies Law applied to websites with their servers in the EU and exempted those that had their servers outside but had access to EU website traffic. But, with the GDPR, any business with EU users needs to comply.

More Information

Hopefully, that has clarified things for you, and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren’t sure whether you need or not it’s usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site.
