Cookie Notice
A Cookie Notice is a message that appears on a website informing visitors that the site uses cookies and providing information about the cookies being used. Cookies are small text files that are stored on a user's device when they visit a website. They are commonly used to store user preferences, login information, and other data that helps to personalize the user experience.

Cookie Notices are typically required by law in many countries, including those in the European Union, as part of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The notice must inform visitors that the site uses cookies, provide information about the types of cookies being used, and obtain the visitor's consent to use the cookies.

Cookie Notices may also include links to the site's privacy policy, which provides more detailed information about the site's data collection and processing practices. The privacy policy should outline how the site uses cookies and other tracking technologies, how user data is collected and stored, and how the site complies with applicable data protection laws.

Cookie Notices are an important part of website compliance and data protection. They help to inform visitors about the use of cookies and provide transparency about how user data is collected and processed. By obtaining user consent, websites can ensure that they are compliant with applicable data protection laws and maintain user trust.
