Cookie Policy Template

Cookie Policy (GDPR-Ready)

BS.WEB.COOK.01

If your website uses cookies or similar technologies, it is important that your visitors are aware of this. Under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, website operators who use cookies on their sites are required to provide users with clear and comprehensive information about the purposes for which cookies are stored and accessed. Moreover, great care must be taken with cookies that use personal data, a term which takes on a much broader definition than it used to, thanks to the GDPR (in force from 25 May 2018). Finally, obtaining user consent to the use of all but “strictly necessary” cookies must not be overlooked.

This Cookie Policy has been designed to help website operators comply with their legal obligations. It explains in detail what cookies are, what each type is used for, and which specific cookies are used by the website. User-friendly language is used to help ensure that users understand what they are reading.

It is important to ensure that your cookie consent mechanisms and your cookie information is easily available to users of your website. More information and practical guidance can be found in our Cookie Law Guidance Notes.

The terms of this Cookie Policy template are broad and will not necessarily apply to all websites. (You might not, for example, use analytics, or third party cookies.) Some options have been specifically marked out in the template, but others have not. It is therefore important that you read the template carefully and make the appropriate alterations to ensure that you are not giving your visitors superfluous information. Please also note that the web links to different web browser instructions in section 5 are up-to-date as of January 2018 but may change at any time.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.

This Cookie Policy contains the following clauses:

1. Definitions and Interpretation
2. Information About Us
3. How Does Our Site Use Cookies?
4. What Cookies Does Our Site Use?
5. Consent and Control
