If you run a website, you’re probably familiar with the concept of cookies.
Put simply, cookies allow websites to remember information and record users’ browsing activity.
But, if you’re using cookies on your website, you want to make sure you’re being open and transparent about how you’re doing it.
It sets out a disclaimer or notice to users of your website that you will be collecting their information and user activity.
This includes how cookies are stored and how third party cookies are used to remember information and user activity.
While it’s not legally required, we always recommend that you have one.
Using cookies on your website means you are storing information and data relating to your users’ activity, so it’s a good idea to be transparent about how you do that.
And, if you fall under the Australian Privacy Principles (APP), you may be required to state what you’re collecting and how it is used, stored and handled.
What Else Do You Need?
First of all, you’ll need your main terms and conditions. This is the central contract that sets out how you provide goods and services to your customers online. It will cover terms such as payment, delivery, supply, intellectual property, and anything else you might want to add. For example, eCommerce stores will specifically want to have terms around returns and refunds.
