Brazil’s Latest Cookie Requirements

As you may be aware, the Brazilian data protection authority (ANPD) has published new guidance on cookies

The recommendations are intended to draw attention to the best cookie policies and banner practices and advice on what to do/avoid while designing them.

If you don’t comply, the validity of your activities related to cookies may be questioned, and you could breach the Brazilian cookie framework.

How to adopt the new cookie requirements

For your convenience, we’ve created a brief checklist of the steps you must do to comply with Brazil’s latest cookie requirements.

As these new requirements are already “live”, we recommend getting set up as soon as possible if you haven’t already.

  1. Set up your Cookie Policy
  2. Activate your Cookie Banner
  3. Link your Cookie Policy to your Cookie banner 
  4. Add to your site! 

The new guidelines offer clear requirements in regard to cookie policies, stating that you must provide your users with information on the following: 

  1. the specific purposes that justify the collection of personal data through cookies,
  2. the retention period, and
  3. sharing of personal data with third parties, if applicable.

You can activate the cookie policy within the Privacy and Cookie Policy generator, as shown below.

The buttons on your cookie banner, “Accept” and “Reject,” as well as the “management option” for optional cookies, must be equally prominent. You can edit the style of your cookie banner within the configurator under Style & Text.

Step 4: Add to your site! 

Once you have saved the settings, copy the Cookie Solution integration code and paste it into your site’s pages, replacing the previous integration code.

If you use our plugin for WordPressJoomla!PrestaShop or Magento, you will need to replace the Cookie Solution code that you will find in the plugin’s configuration panel.
