by Solstice Care Ltd to its website if it collects personal data via its website. Solstice Care Ltd will use the template Fair Processing Notice to inform all other Data Subjects, including Service Users, about
how Solstice Care Ltd processes personal data other than personal data collected via the website.
l If Solstice Care Ltd does not transfer personal data outside of the EEA, Solstice Care Ltd will delete the section entitled "Where we store your personal data"
l If Solstice Care Ltd is not required to appoint a Data Protection Officer, Solstice Care Ltd will delete references to the Data Protection Officer or will consider replacing references to the Data Protection Officer with references to the Privacy Officer at Solstice Care Ltd or other person nominated to have day-to-day responsibility for data protection and GDPR

4.4 Solstice Care Ltd must, therefore, update its processes for collecting consent for cookies. In practice, this means:
l Users must take a clear and positive action to consent to non-essential cookies
l The websites and apps of Solstice Care Ltd must tell users clearly what cookies will be set and what they do, including any third-party cookies
l Pre-ticked boxes or any equivalents, such as sliders defaulted to “on”, cannot be used for non- essential cookies
l The users at Solstice Care Ltd must have control over any non-essential cookies
l Non-essential cookies must not be set on landing pages before you gain the user’s consent Consent is not required for cookies that are defined as “strictly necessary” or that fall within the
communication exemption. “Strictly necessary” cookies are those that are essential to providing the service
requested by the user. Such cookies must be essential to fulfil their request. Those that are simply helpful or convenient, but not essential, or that are essential for the purposes of Solstice Care Ltd, will still require consent. The communication exemption is about the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network. For the exemption to apply, the transmission of the communication must be
impossible without the use of the cookie. Simply using a cookie to assist the communication is insufficient for the exemption to apply.
Solstice Care Ltd must note, in particular, that cookies used for analytical purposes or those used for marketing and advertising will always need consent as they are considered to be non-essential. This guidance may change as the latest draft legislation is subject to some challenges on this point.
Solstice Care Ltd must read the ICO’s cookie guidance available at: https://ico.org.uk/for- organisations/guide-to-pecr/cookies-and-similar-technologies/ for further information on the types of cookie that require consent.
