Website Cookie Policy

This document can be used as a Website Cookie Policy. It has been updated to reflect the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and sets out the website's policies with regards to a number of key issues concerning usage of cookies and similar storage technologies:

  • what information is collected
  • how that information is used
  • third party cookies
  • consent

It should be noted that this document only includes a cookie policy. Further documents such as a terms and conditions of use, a terms and conditions of sale and a privacy policy may also be required. However, such documents are not included and must be obtained separately.

Other similar technologies which are similar to cookies, and to which this policy may apply, include online tracking devices such as web beacons, action tags, local shared objects, flash cookies, single-pixel gifs.

 

How to use the document

In order for the cookie policy to be effective, the user will have to actually be made aware of the policy. So firstly, it will need to be published on the website.

However many websites will also refer to the cookies policy within their terms and conditions of use and privacy policy, such that the user can be considered to be agreeing to the cookies policy.

Additionally, the Information Commissioner's Office recommends that organisation display a clear and prominent request for consent to receive cookies and similar technologies. This will require a user clicking an icon, sending an email or subscribing to a service, whereby the user knows that by the action in question they will be giving consent. Typical such actions include popup notifications which require a user to click a box accepting use of cookies and/or similar technologies. Any such notification may wish to include a link to the cookie and/or privacy policy and a brief explanation of why consent is required. In addition, an option to 'opt-out' of the use of cookies must be provided to all users who have previously consented.

Further information on cookies can be found on the Information Commissioner's Office website.

In addition to this cookie policy, business owners who are selling goods or services online will also need a separate set of terms and conditions for sale of goods, and/or terms and conditions for sale of services - which explain the rules in relation to any sales made through the website. In addition, it is likely that a privacy policy will be required. Finally, an acceptable use policy may also help set out the ways in which the website may be used.
