After doing my due diligence I chose CookieYes for three main reasons:
Unfortunately this is one of those topics that can become very confusing very quickly. But with that in mind it occurs to me that I should write something about MY UNDERSTANDING of what GDPR actually is.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU-wide regulation that controls how companies and other organisations handle personal data. Post Brexit it is likely that the UK Government will implement like-for-like legislation.
One interesting 'kicker' to all of this is that website owners need to log all consents given. You can check out the ICO's 'Cookies and similar technologies page'.
It's worth noting that I have made the changes and engaged with CookieYes because it's the right thing to do AND now I don't have to worry (as much) about falling foul of complex regulations.
As always if you think I've gotten something wrong please let me know.
