Cookies and Cookie Consent Explained

Cookies are integral to the way modern websites work. Most personalization and social media integration on websites rely on cookies in one way or another.

However, they can be used in a way that doesn’t benefit visitors, and they are often used to track people across the web and build up profiles that are very valuable to brands and advertisers for targeted marketing.

This is often seen as an invasion of privacy, and because cookies are a fairly quiet technology – this can be happening to you without you realizing it or being able to stop it if you wanted to.

To help you become more aware of this activity and give you a say in whether you want to allow it to happen, new EU-wide privacy legislation was put in place in 2011. This has become known as the Cookie Law.

The Cookie Law requires that websites give you clear, detailed information about how they use cookies, and provide ways for you to signal whether or not you want to allow such use. The website is then required by law to respect your wishes. This might mean they block the cookies you don’t like, or they don’t let you access the site – however you should expect to be given the choice.
