Your website is your virtual shop, where people visit to find out more about you, your business, the services/products you sell, and in some cases to purchase those services/products directly via your website. Your website is also a place that gathers personal data about individuals: if your website places cookies on users’ devices you are gathering personal data from that user; if your website allows users to complete forms to receive marketing, or is an e-commerce website, you are collecting personal data from individuals. You therefore need to ensure you remain on the right side of data protection and e-privacy laws when it comes to what personal data you can collect and very importantly what you must tell individuals you will be doing with their data.

This webinar will cover what cookies are and what cookie law is, what a privacy notice is, the laws surrounding both, and how to ensure you are being transparent to your customers when creating a cookie policy and privacy notice.

In this webinar, you will learn: 
  • what cookie law is and how to comply with it
  • when and how to know what information you need to give to individuals when you collect their personal data via your website
  • what a privacy notice is, what it must include and what a good one looks like
