Does GDPR allow cookies?

Yes, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) allows the use of cookies, but it also requires websites to provide clear and transparent information about their use of cookies and to obtain consent from individuals before placing them on their devices.

The GDPR applies to the processing of personal data of individuals in the European Union (EU) and sets out requirements for organizations that process personal data, including the use of cookies. If cookies can be used to identify an individual, they are considered personal data under the GDPR. Websites must therefore provide information about their use of cookies and obtain consent before placing them on an individual’s device.
