Free Cookies Scanner FAQ
What are cookies?
These cookies are non-fat, gluten-free, vegan, aaaaand… we’re just kidding, of course! 🙂
The cookies we’re talking about are small files that websites send and which are stored on a user’s computer.
They are designed to hold a tiny amount of data about a particular user and website.
Cookies can be accessed either by the web server or the user’s computer. This allows the server to deliver a website page tailored to a particular user.
Alternatively, the page itself can include a script that can retrieve the cookie data and, as a result, carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.
This quick guide provides more information about website cookies and their uses.
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation that focuses on ensuring data protection and privacy for internet users who are part of the European Union.
GDPR primarily aims to give EU citizens and residents control over their personal data. Additionally, the regulation seeks to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation across the European Union.
As a core provision, GDPR requires website owners to inform their visitors of the fact that their behavior is tracked or recorded in any way. That’s why you see a cookie notice when you visit a website for the first time (or every time, if you set your browser to never accept cookies).
Moreover, GDPR also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA.
What is e-Privacy?
The ePrivacy Regulation (ePR) was proposed by the European Commission to reinforce trust and security in the EU Digital Single Market. The proposal aims to update the legal framework on ePrivacy to fit current data privacy needs.
The ePR’s objectives include:
- Ensuring a consistent level of protection for electronic communications across the EU and a unified manner to ensure it from a legislative perspective
- Adding nuance and specifics to the EU cookie provision with the purpose of streamlining consent and improving user experience while also distinguishing between non-privacy intrusive cookies and the rest of them
- Banning any form of spam, from unsolicited emails to SMS spam and robocalls and more.
You might find it useful to read about the differences between GDPR and ePR.
