Digital Personal Data Protection Act – IN 🇮🇳

Understanding cookies and their role in online browsing is crucial for safeguarding your privacy. Cookies, small text files dropped by websites onto your device, serve important functions but also have implications for data collection. To address privacy concerns, global regulations such as the Digital Personal Data Protection Act (DPDPA) have been implemented. Prioritizing data protection is essential in today’s digital landscape.

What are Cookies?

Cookies act as small text files that websites store on your device during online exploration. Processed and stored by your web browser, cookies play essential roles in website functionality. However, it’s important to recognize their potential to store significant data that could identify you without your consent. Consequently, various regulations worldwide focus on protecting our data and privacy.

DPDPA & Cookie Consent Banner

Under the 2023 India Digital Personal Data Protection Act (DPDPA), businesses are mandated to obtain explicit user consent for the use of cookies and other types of data processing. Unlike some regulations such as GDPR, the DPDPA doesn’t explicitly require consent for each specific category, but it can be aggregated for user convenience. Consent is a fundamental legal basis for data processing according to the Indian DPDPA, especially in the context of using cookies.
To be ready to comply with the DPDPA regulation, illow recommends implementing a banner with the following:

  • Include a Button to Accept Cookies: The text in the cookie banner and the button must make it clear that by clicking the button the user agrees to the deployment of cookies.
  • Provide Detailed Information About Cookie Use: The cookie banner should contain information about why the website uses cookies.
  • Alert the User if the Website Shares Data with Third Parties: If the website shares the data collected through cookies with third parties the cookie banner should explain this.
  • Link to the Website’s Cookie Policy: Here the website will provide further information about the cookies in use on the site, including a list of all the cookies.
  • Include a Link to the Cookie Settings: This isn’t legaly required, but it can be an option for the users.
