Frequently Asked Questions and Answers from Termly’s Legal Experts

What is GDPR cookie consent?

GDPR cookie consent is the act of consenting to, rejecting, or specifying the use of cookies on a website. Unlike other laws regarding cookie consent, the GDPR requires that websites give users options for which cookies are used, if any, as they access a site.

To comply with the GDPR’s cookie consent requirements, your website or app needs a cookie consent function that users see before cookies can be applied. The consent function can appear as a banner, popup, or form that users will see and can interact with when they enter your site.
