Does my blog need a cookie policy?

Yes, your blog needs a cookies policy if it uses cookies or tracking technologies to collect data from visitors.

A cookie policy discloses how cookies are used on your site and provides transparency about what information is collected. Your blog might need one if you:

  • Use analytics services like Google Analytics
  • Show targeted ads
  • Use third-party services like social sharing buttons
  • Use cookies to customize the site or track logged-in users

A cookie policy demonstrates respect for privacy, builds trust with visitors, and helps you comply with privacy regulations like GDPR. Unless your blog doesn’t involve any form of tracking, a cookie notice or policy is recommended best practice.
