Managing cookies


By default, Fotoware SaaS uses only strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are necessary to comply with EU privacy regulations. Privacy regulations vary from region to region, and it is your responsibility to ensure you comply with the regulations in effect for your location.

Best practices

  • Inspect your Fotoware site regularly - which cookies is it using? 
  • Familiarize yourself with the regulations in your country or for your organization.
  • Consider professional legal advice for the text in the cookie warning bar and cookie policy.
  • If you are using third-party tools (Google Analytics, PIWIK, or similar) they might introduce unnecessary cookies for which you need to obtain permission. This is not part of the Fotoware cookie warning functionality.

As the necessary cookies apply to logged-in users only, they are mostly relevant for publicly accessible sites where visitors must log in. Website visitors who do not log in do not have to consent to using these cookies.
