Yes, you do, and here’s why!

If you have EU-based users, and your website uses cookies (which it most likely does!) you need to manage cookie consents according to the ePrivacy and GDPR. This means that you’ll need to block cookie scripts and similar technologies until the user gives consent. 

Also, for the consent to be considered valid, you’ll need to make certain disclosures via a cookie banner and link to a more detailed cookie policy. More details here.

💡 Need to add a Privacy policy to your Ghost site? See the Ghost Privacy Policy integration guide.

Few categories of cookies are exempt from the consent requirement. Therefore, almost all scripts that install or can install cookies must be preemptively blocked before consent is obtained. To set up the prior blocking of scripts, see our guide on blocking via manual tagging or explore other methods outlined in our general introduction to the prior blocking of cookies.

⚠️ Caution

After installation, please be sure to set-up prior blocking, as this is legally mandatory under EU Law. You can find various methods of prior blocking along with full instructions in this guide.
