When you set up your website for your new business there are certain documents that should always be in place and visible.
This is necessary for complying with the law. But it is not just about legal protection – it is also important for the credibility of your business and for good optics.

Depending on the nature of your website, it might be better to describe how cookies are used to collect and process user personal data in a separate “Cookies Notice” or “Cookies Policy”.

The Cookies Notice sets out the types of cookies that your website uses. Related to this, we can advise you on the need for a “Cookies Banner”, which is a mechanism that you can implement to obtain user consent to cookies.
It is essential that you have the right documents in place, and we can help ensure that you do. Contact Aria Grace Law Partner Nick Bent if you need help – Nick is an expert in drafting website documents and advising on requirements for all types of businesses.
