A notice on COVID-19:

It’s one thing knowing what cookies are on your website, but do your webpages actually behave in line with your cookie banner and policy – and are they compliant with the GDPR, PECR and the incoming ePrivacy Regulation?
The regulations governing cookies and similar technologies are currently split between the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation (PECR), and the ePrivacy Directive, with the incoming ePrivacy Regulation set to be finalised later this year.
Cookies collect huge amounts of data and can be used to – either accidentally or intentionally – capture enough information to identify an individual without their consent.
Because of this, cookies are an increasing regulatory priority for the ICO.
You need to ensure you have obtained freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous consent from a user before you drop any cookies - except those that are strictly necessary cookies. You can read our compliance guide to cookies and the ICO, GDPR, PECR & e-Privacy Regulation for more information here.
Many businesses are confused about what’s required for cookie compliance, or struggle to meet the regulatory requirements whilst also achieving their business objectives.
If you need a hand, our expert consultants can help you find the balance between respecting your users’ privacy whilst still generating your online marketing revenue and tracking the statistics you need.
Our GDPR and PECR cookie compliance audits act as a simple and straightforward starting point.
Our commercially minded consultants will help your business map how closely your website and cookie operations align to what the cookie regulations require.
We will highlight your areas of risk and provide key recommendations that will ensure your webpages and cookie operations act compliantly with the GDPR and PECR.
Our audit can help your business ensure it:
Once we’ve completed our cookies assessment to map your current state of play, you will have a clear roadmap that will outline the areas which need to be addressed in order to achieve compliance. If required, our consultants can help you put these policies and processes in place.
