First of all, it is important to clarify what exactly cookies are. Cookies are text files that the website provider stores on the user's computer or other terminal device. When the website is visited again, these text files are read again in order to facilitate web navigation and to analyze information about the behavior of website users.
Basically, there are different types of cookies. The main difference is that there are technically necessary and not technically necessary text files. These two options are treated differently in legislation. Cookies that are necessary for the functioning of the website are considered technically necessary. Cookies are not technically necessary if they only serve to protect economic interests.
Cookie text is displayed in the form of a banner or pop-up window. They are designed to help website operators comply with regulations and protect the privacy of their users.
For a cookie to comply with the GDPR, users almost always have to give their consent. A cookie banner must be used not only when cookies are used for advertising purposes, but also when certain features are implemented.
Anyone running a website with EU (or non-EU) visitors should have an appropriate banner. A cookie banner must be clearly visible and easy to understand. The Cookie Banner Text should provide an initial overview of the purpose of using cookies. It should explain what cookies are and indicate what types of cookies are stored on the user's device.
