1. Introduction

The Council of Foreign Chamber in the UK (The CFCC) Privacy Statement available here describes how we collect and use personal data. An additional way we collect personal data is through the setting of “cookies” on your device.

  1. What are “Cookies”

Cookies are usually small text files stored on a device, such as a PC, a mobile device or any other device that can store information and are often set by websites when a user visits them. Cookies as defined within this statement also includes similar technologies, such as pixels, local storage and software development kits (SDKs).

The information stored in cookies can include personal data, such as an IP address, a username, a unique identifier, or an email address. But it may also contain nonpersonal data such as language settings or information about the type of device a person is using to browse the site. Advertising IDs, user IDs and other tracking IDs may also be contained in cookies


  1. “Cookies” Law

The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) cover the use of cookies and similar technologies for storing information, and accessing information stored, on a user’s equipment such as a computer or mobile device.

Consent for the setting of cookies must be of the standard defined in the GDPR. Article 4(11), which says the ‘consent’ of the data subject means any “freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.”
