What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that is placed on to your computer when you visit a website.

Cookies are used by almost all websites and perform a number of functions like remembering your preferences, playing videos, recording what you have put in your shopping basket, and counting the number of visitors visiting a website.

Cookie law

The rules on cookies are covered in the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR). 

Where cookies collect personal information, and can identify a user, their use is also subject to the General Data Protection Regulation. Where user consent is required to use cookies, it must meet the GDPR standard for “valid” consent as detailed in Article 4(11).

How do these regulations impact me?
