What is a cookie policy?

A cookie policy is a document that outlines how you, as a website owner, plan to use cookies. The goal of a cookie policy is to give your users the information they need about your cookie usage so that they can make informed decisions about whether or not to continue using your site.

A good cookie policy will include:

  • 1. What cookies do you use?
  • 2. Why you’re using cookies?
  • 3. How long cookies are stored?
  • 4. All third-party tools you’re using that require cookies for functionality
  • 5. How users can manage cookies?

A cookie policy is required by many privacy laws, such as GDPR and CCPA if you use cookies to track user’s activity on your website.
