When Should My Wix Website Have a Cookies Policy

Your Wix website should include a Cookies Policy when your site:

  • Uses cookies, and
  • You want to keep your users very informed about exactly how you use cookies

While you could include a clause in your Privacy Policy that details your use of cookies, this point of information can sometimes get lost in a long policy. At the same time, your cookie usage may be extensive, so including all of this information in your Privacy Policy can make the policy lengthy.

Having and displaying a separate Cookies Policy comes with a number of benefits including the following:

  • You can get into a great amount of detail
  • You can link to your policy in your website footer and other places for maximum visibility
  • As privacy laws change, having a Cookies Policy helps ensure you stay one step ahead of global legal compliance

If you want those benefits for your Wix website and for your users, we recommend you create a Cookies Policy and use these short, simple steps to add it to your site and then link it to your site's footer.

How to Add a Cookies Policy to your Wix Website

Once you have a well-drafted Cookies Policy that you're ready to display, you'll have to add a new page to your Wix site where the text of your policy will go.

Here's how you add a new page to your Wix site and add your Cookies Policy to it.

  1. Log in to Wix.

  10. While on the newly created Cookies Policy page, click on the 3 dots to open the page menu and go to Settings:
  11. TermsFeed Wix Editor: Cookies Policy page - Settings highlighted

  12. Under the Page Info section, toggle the hide from menu button to be active. Close the Editor window:

Now that you've added a new page for your Cookies Policy, make sure users can access it by putting a link to it in your Wix site's footer. This is the most common place where businesses add important links and legal information, and people know to look here for such things.

  9. TermsFeed Wix Editor: Add to Site - Text - Themed text with Paragraph and Moved to Footer button highlighted

  10. After you place the text box in the footer, double-click the Text box in order to edit the text. Type in "Cookies Policy," select it and click on the link icon of the text editor:
  11. TermsFeed Wix Editor: Add to Site - Text Settings - Cookies Policy selected link highlighted

  12. When the link opens, choose Web Address:

    TermsFeed Wix Editor: Add to Site - Text Settings - Link to Web Address highlighted
