Cookies policy

UK and EU law require that websites using cookies provide information to users about those cookies. That information is usually provided by means of a cookies policy published on the website. A cookies policy adapted from this template will provide information to users about the nature of cookies in general, the purposes for cookies are used, and methods of managing cookies. Depending upon what cookies are used on your website and where you and your users are situated, you may need to supplement a cookies policy with cookie consent procedures.

Some cookies are exempted from the information and consent requirements, but most websites and web applications use some cookies that fall outside the exemption.

As a general rule, the fewer legal documents on a website, the better. With this in mind, you should consider our combined privacy and cookies policy templates as an alternative to this cookies policy.

Cookies policy purposes

A cookies policy is a notice on a website that explains how the website operator uses cookies. The purpose of a cookies policy is twofold: to inform visitors about the use of cookies and similar tracking technologies, and to comply with applicable data protection and privacy laws.

Information provided to users about cookies will typically include information about the types of cookies used on their site, the purposes for which the cookies are used, the information collected by the website operator using the cookies, and mechanisms for blocking, deleting and managing cookies. For sites with more exotic cookie use, cookies policies are particularly important in providing transparency to users.

Many countries have privacy laws and regulations that require website owners to disclose their use of cookies, particularly for cookies that contain or are used to collect personal information. A cookies policy helps meet these legal requirements. This particular policy template has been designed with UK and EU privacy laws in mind. For applicable UK laws, see: Regulation 6 of the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 and the amendments thereto in the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2011.

The use of cookies may also require the express consent of the user.

In addition, where the use of cookies involves the processing of personal data, data protection law requires the disclosure of information about such processing to data subjects.

The following sections are included in the cookie policy: (1) about cookies; (2) this cookies policy; (3) cookies on this website; (4) how we use cookies; (5) third party cookies; (6) blocking cookies; (7) deleting cookies; and (8) contact us.

I have seen so many coded websites a) that already inject cookies b) allow an end user to surf half the websites content, before the jscripts kick in to prompt the end user consent form. Surely that is also illegal? if the law is to be effective then shouldn’t all websites be consealed with a front door consent form. The law isn’t strict enough and is almost optional.


If the website only uses google analytics, then you can create a link to for a simple legal solution.
