Why do our pages not need a COOKIE notice?

According to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union


Cookie Consent banners are only necessary if the page includes code that allows third parties to track the online activity of the people who visit it, for example Google Analytics, Google AdSense, facebook, twitter, advertising, etc.

What are Cookies?

Cookies allow websites to save people's settings, preferences, shopping carts, know if they are logged in and track their activity.

They are stored in web browsers (Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Edge) and are created by the web pages when they are visited.

What are third-party cookies?

Third Party Cookies are Cookies that allow you to track people's activity between different websites.

They are created when the website includes code from third parties such as Google Analytics, Google AdSense, Facebook, Twitter and other social networks, statistics services or advertising.

When this tracking is done without people's prior consent, it violates their privacy.

What are Cookie Consent Banners?

With regard to the Online Privacy of the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union, before using Third Party Cookies, a website must:

  • clearly explain for what purposes they will be used
  • from which third parties come 
  • with which third parties they will be shared 
  • get people's consent to be able to use them
  • allow people to withdraw that consent when they want to

The Cookie Consent Banners are the interactive elements appear on so many web pages asking for consent to save Cookies.

What are the Necessary Cookies that do not require consent?

Cookies that are necessary for the operation of the page, are not from third parties, are not used to share people's data with third parties, are exempt from consent.

These are private cookies that store the preferences of the pages, such as:

  • whether or not you have accepted to give consent to cookies
  • if you are logged in
  • store products in cars and shopping lists
  • Filling out forms
  • Server security and performance

Do the web pages need to ask for consent from Cookies?

If they do not include third-party code and do not share data with third parties, the websites do not need to ask for cookie consent.

We in create web pages without cookie consent tracks because we do not include third-party code or features.
