GDPR / ePrivacy and its relevance to your website
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the ePrivacy regulation are new EU legislation intended to provide better protection of EU residents’ personal data. Under the new legislation, any information collected by cookies and other trackers, which can identify an individual either directly or indirectly, is considered to be personal data.
The new legislation demands compliance from website owners in a number of key areas related to cookies and other tracking technology including:
- the requirement for you to be fully up to date regarding all tracking technology on your website
- the need for you to obtain and prove users’ consent to cookies, as well as to enable withdrawal of consent
- the requirement to hold back tracking technologies until user consent has been given (except in the case of “necessary” technology, as described in the legislation)
- full knowledge of the data your website shares with third parties and where in the world it is sent
