Strictly Necessary Cookies

Strictly required cookies are cookies that must be present in order for the website to perform its fundamental tasks. They are required in order to utilize the website functions such as signing in, adding things to a basket, and e-billing. They are usually first-party session cookies that are required, however not all first-party cookies are required.

They allow a user to travel back and forth between pages without losing their prior session’s actions. Strictly required cookies are the only cookies that are exempt from requiring user consent under all cookie laws. Because essential cookies are required for a website’s functionality, website owners do not need the user’s permission to set strictly necessary cookies on their devices.

Certain cookie rules, on the other hand, mandate that the website inform the user of the purpose of the site’s required cookies. It is regarded excellent practice to educate site visitors about the rationale for each type of cookie that is used on your site.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has a stringent definition of what counts as strictly necessary cookies. Most importantly, the use must be tied to a service that the user has specifically requested. Examples of strictly required cookies are cookies that save your shopping cart when you shop online and cookies that allow you to log in and access secure areas of your website.
