comply with information disclosure obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998

and related legislation. Failure to comply can lead to civil liability and criminal law

penalties. This document includes short-form provisions dealing with cookie-related

disclosures. You should consider whether you need to take specialist legal advice

on data protection. If your website collects sensitive personal information (such as

information about a person's health, sexuality or political affiliations), or if your

website collects personal information from children or about children, you should

always take advice before using this - or indeed any other - website privacy policy

template. Website operators may need to register with the Information

Commissioner's Office.

this should be made clear on the page where the information is collected, and you

should ensure that this only happens if users opt in to the marketing (eg "Click here

if you would like us to send you information by email about products which we think

will interest you."). There are, however, exceptions to this general rule. There are

also rules about the content of direct marketing communications. If you are in any
