Cookie Banner - Example 1

This banner is NOT Compliant. Because it does NOT give a user the “free choice” to Reject unnecessary cookies, which is a legal requirement under GDPR

Cookie Banner - Example 2

Here the users have NO choice, they are “forced“ to accept cookies. Rejecting may be possible, but it is hidden away under settings. This is neither easy nor transparent. This is unlawful and non Compliant with GDPR

Finally, here are some additional things that may not be obvious in the graphical examples, but are required for GDPR Cookie compliance.

  • You are required to have a GDPR compliant cookie policy
  • You are required to have all Cookies & their purposes listed, in the Cookie policy.
  • The Cookie policy should be easily accessible and be linked to from the Cookie consent banner for ease and transparency.
  • Prior Consent must be obtained before any Cookies are installed.

consider to ensure that you are Cookie compliant:
