  1. Privacy Policy and a Cookie Policy are two different subjects that should be dealt with separately. The cookie policy deals specifically with the use of cookies on your site, whereas the privacy policy is a general document regarding all of the personal information processes on a website, including contact forms, mailing lists, etc.
  2. Cookies are a potential privacy risk, because they are able to track, store and share user behavior.
  3. Whereas most of the remaining Privacy Policy may be static, the cookies used on a website are dynamic and might change often.
  • The majority of the cookies in operation on a website are usually set by third parties, i.e. have another provenance than the website itself.

They may also get the impression that you simply don’t take privacy seriously. This may have a serious impact on your reputation.
