It's important to note that under GDPR and other data protection laws, you must obtain users' consent before you can use non-essential cookies. Therefore, your cookie consent banner should not only inform users about cookies but also give them the opportunity to opt in or out. Some websites use a cookie consent management platform (CMP) to manage this process.
Legal compliance also involves responding to user requests and complaints. Under GDPR and other data protection laws, users have the right to request access to their data, correct inaccuracies, and object to processing. Therefore, you should have a process in place to handle these requests and comply with your legal obligations.
Building Trust with Users
By doing so, you can ensure that your organization is not only legally compliant but also respected and trusted by your users. In the digital age, where data privacy is a paramount concern, this can be a significant competitive advantage.
