GDPR and ePrivacy
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires companies to document each consent. At the same time, a company must be able to account for what user data he shares with embedded third-party services on his website and where in the world the user data is sent.
CookieLegit understands that GDPR laws can feel like a lot the handle. It can be hard to understand the law if you are not fully aware of what the GDPR law actually contains and how the technical aspects of it work. For companies, it will be harder to understand what you need to do to make your website comply with the law. As a business owner, you have to be aware of every aspect of the law that concerns your company when you service within the European Union.
Companies are required to comply with the law when they serve their products or services to citizens in the European Union. In this case, it does not matter where the companies are based. The GDPR law applies to companies who are based in the EU as well as outside of the EU. Not adhering to the law can result in hefty fines. Those fines can be as high as €20 million ($23 million) or 4% of your annual worldwide turnover, whichever is higher.
The EU Member States have compiled a general guide on obtaining consent for cookies. It says the following:
- Provide clear and specific information about the cookies you want to collect;
- Ask your visitors for their permission before storing cookies;
- Give visitors the option to decline the cookies;
- Give your visitors the option to change their choice afterward.
CookieLegit does all that.
