re: I created a website, but when do I have to notify users that I want your cookies? VIEW POST


I find the ICO guide to be very useful with this.
The "cookie law" covers all forms of storage on a device including cookies, sessions and local storage but you do not need to get consent for essential storage - something your website cannot function without.
Examples of this may include authentication and keeping a shopping basket.

For non-essential purposes, you must give “clear and comprehensive” information about your purposes and why you need to store that information on the user's device.

You also have to allow the user to continue to use your website as normal if they have not opted-in to cookies.

There's a few solutions online you could integrate into your website?

I'm not an expert, but that's my takeaway from what I've heard. Hopefully it's helpful :)
