Cookie Policy Template and Instructions

Instructions and Cookie Banner

No consent is required for essential cookies. Essential cookies are cookies that are “necessary” to provide the service requested by the user. They include cookies that:

  • uniquely serve a security purpose;
  • are essential to render certain content;
  • remember language choices; and
  • remember the content of a shopping basket.

For non-essential cookies, such as those serving advertising and analytics purposes, consent is required. Merely relying on the browser settings of the user for the acceptance of cookies is insufficient. Consent must be obtained by means of a banner appearing on the website during the first visit of a user to the website.

The banner should read as follows:

  • “This website uses cookies to improve your browsing experience. Some of our cookies are essential to provide you with our service, other cookies enable us to improve the structure of our Website and provide more relevant content. Please click “I accept” to allow us to provide you with the full experience. For more information, please consult our Cookie Policy. [I accept]”

Non-essential cookies should not be posted until the user actually used the website. Clicking on the link in the banner for more information on cookies does not qualify as consent.

EV8 Technologies should record the consent obtained and be able to demonstrate that consent was obtained.

If EV8 Technologies does not use non-essential cookies, there is no need to obtain consent and a banner containing the following information will suffice:

  • “This website uses cookies to improve your browsing experience. You have the right to opt-out from these cookies. For more information, please consult our Cookie Policy.”

This Cookie Policy applies to EV8 Technologies website (“Website”). It should be read together with the Website Privacy Policy.
