Stop copy-pasting cookie policies from other websites – it will get you in trouble one day.
A cookie is a file saved on a user’s device (with their consent), whenever they visit a website.
In simpler terms, this is a simple and very small text file that stores the website’s identity and gives you a special ID. All this, so that the website can know it has been open from your device before. Kind of a way of differentiating new from existing users.
It is no secret that cookie policies have drawn some attention in the past. While some have championed it, others have claimed it not fit for online business. If you value your visitors you will always ensure that your consumers are conscious of their rights.
