I'm using GoSquared for my website analytics.

I've visited quite a few sites using Google Analytics but they don't have a cookie policy or a cookie banner/cookie notice, even though Google Analytics uses cookies to provide their services.

Do I need to make my own cookie policy or cookie notice if I use GoSquared Analytics (which also uses cookies to function)?

Which site would the above question be on-topic for?

This looks like a legal question, so perhaps Law Stack Exchange is your best bet.

The usual advice: please search and check their Help Center article What topics can I ask about here? before posting a question.

P.S. it seems sites with Google Analytics do need to present a cookie consent notice, at least when you're in the European Union.

  • If this is the GDPR it is not just if you are in the EU - it is also if the client is in or a citizen of the EU.
