Privacy & Cookie Policies

Spread the love

If you already have a website for your business, or are considering setting one up, Blacks Solicitors’ Commercial Law team can help you with your Privacy and/or Cookie Policies.

Privacy Policies

A Privacy Policy is a document that details what personal information you collect from your users, how you use it, and how you keep it private.

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the highlighting of privacy laws in the UK and the EU, it is important that users of your website are aware of their legal positions and their responsibilities under privacy laws.

Failing to protect yourself/your business and put the correct policies in place can, if it leads to a breach of personal data, have serious consequences (including, but not limited, to large fines).

Cookie Policies

In the ‘information age’, data is the new currency. Private information on individuals is very valuable to advertisers, businesses, and governments.

A Cookie Policy is also very important. It is now a legal requirement to explain what cookies are stored, how they are stored and what they contain. You must also provide users of your website the opportunity not to have their cookies stored.
