I work for a private college in California. Our site is mainly for prospective students. We use Google Analytics, but anonymize user IP addresses.

What are the rules/laws for needing a cookie consent screen for higher education websites? Specifically for private colleges and universities?

  • The laws about cookies vary by jurisdiction. Where is your private college or university located? Aug 4, 2020 at 23:02
  • What does this website do? The laws about cookies require different things based on what information is being collected and what is stored in cookies. Aug 4, 2020 at 23:03
  • We are located in California and our website is mainly for prospective students. Aug 4, 2020 at 23:05
  • California is a bad place to have a website these days because of the CCPA. You have to worry about far more than cookies. Aug 5, 2020 at 10:02
  • @StephenOstermiller We are a non-profit, so CCPA doesn't apply to us. Aug 5, 2020 at 23:35
