What is cookie compliance?

Cookie compliance means following the regulations governing cookie use on a website. Privacy laws and regulations vary from law to law, but in general, websites require users’ consent to set cookies and must inform users about what cookies are being set and their purposes. If users reject the consent to use cookies, websites must not store those cookies and users should be able to withdraw consent at any time.

Major privacy laws like GDPR, CCPA, ePrivacy Directive, LGPD, and CNIL have rules that affect cookie compliance.
