  • What are website cookies?

    Cookies are small files that are cached on the user’s computer when visiting a website. They contribute to the functionality of the site and offer numerous advantages – for the user as well as for the website operator. However, since the GDPR was enforced, there have also been legally sensitive cookies that are used to track the surfing behavior of individual users . Such cookies are also known as tracking cookies. They are used for marketing purposes and in most cases are set by third parties.

  • In this context, session cookies are the “good” cookies, as they make certain applications possible in the first place. If you log into the online banking area, you cannot do without session cookies. In online shops, for example, a shopping cart remains full thanks to cookies. Thus, a user can return and complete the purchase process. From the website operator’s point of view, this is an immense advantage, as it encourages potential customers to buy even days later. According to the GDPR , the user must give their consent to cookies and can choose which cookies they allow and which not.

Not sure if you need a CMP?

To help you with things like GDPR, CMP and consent, we’ve rounded up the most common questions here.

The cookie banner must appear immediately on the website, but must not cover the imprint. The options must be clearly stated, there must be no ticks next to the cookies – these are set by the user himself.

As much as many users and website operators would like to see this, the GDPR stipulates that the user must give their consent themselves. Accordingly, there must be no ticks next to the cookies, but must be set by the user himself.

In theory, you can do without cookies, but certain cookies are necessary for the website to function properly. Users can do without tracking cookies without it affecting their surfing experience.

The GDPR applies everywhere within the European Union. If you are based in the European Union, your website must be GDPR compliant. The same applies to websites that are registered in a country outside the EU but sell products or services to users in the EU.

Thanks to cookies, very good usability can be guaranteed, for example by storing access data. This means that the visitor can return to the online shop at a later point in time without having to re-enter the access data. In addition, marketing-related cookies allow the tracking and analysis of user behavior.
