Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information. They are downloaded to a user's device when they visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device.

Any website using cookies must:

  • Tell users of the website that cookies are used
  • Explain what the cookies are doing, and
  • Get the user's consent to store the cookies on their device
A user can give implied consent (rather than express consent) but the consent given must always be informed consent. Therefore you should ensure as far as reasonably possible that the user understands that their actions will lead to cookies being set.

For example, a website could use a pop-up message to let users know that the website uses cookies. The pop-up could contain a link to a separate webpage with further information on the cookies, plus two buttons for the user to either accept or decline the cookies. If the user accepts the cookies, then the consent will be express consent. If the user clicks away from the pop-up without accepting or declining, then consent is implied because the user will have seen the message and then continued to use the website.

Another way of getting implied consent is to include the cookies information in the website's terms of use and require a user to tick a box to indicate that they accept those terms.
