Cookies and tracking
Inform customers of any cookies that are used on your website. You may also need to comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is the European Union’s new data protection law which came into force on 25 May 2018.
The GDPR doesn’t just apply to EU based businesses, it applies to any business that processes personal data relating to an individual in the European Union, so even if you are an Australian business, there is a chance that GDPR may apply to you, your clients or the work you undertake online.
