Rules for cookie banners

Alistair Laing did a show and tell a few weeks back on the awesome cookie banner work he did for the Find postgraduate teacher training service.

Here’s what I noted. You must:

  1. Tell people the cookies are there
  2. Explain what the cookies are doing and why
  3. Get the user’s consent to store a cookie on their device

You can still use cookies without asking for consent if they’re absolutely necessary. For example, if users need to login or if they need to add items to their shopping cart.
