Therefore, it can be understood that these cookies are excluded from the scope of article 22.2 of the LSSI and, therefore, it would not be necessary to inform or obtain consent for their use. On the contrary, it will be necessary to inform and obtain consent for the installation and use of any other type of cookies, both first and third party, session or persistent, falling within the scope of application of article 22.2 of the LSSI.
In the event that personal data of users is collected through cookies other than those indicated, it would be necessary to notify before such cookies are activated.
The regulations do not specify ways to inform and obtain consent, and there is no single formula to fulfill this duty, but there are multiple systems to achieve it. A simple way to fulfill your duty of information about cookies is through a system called “layered information”.
In this way, when the user accesses your website, the essential information is displayed in a first layer, and if they want to complete the information, it is provided in a second layer, which they would access by clicking on a button or link.
Next, I detail the texts that, as an example, the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) proposes for both the first and the second layer.
First layer information
