Cookie Policy

Welcome to Life Kitchen’s cookie notice.

This cookie notice explains how Life Kitchen uses “cookies” or similar technologies on our website and applies to all individuals who access or use our website.

When you first access our website from certain jurisdictions, you will receive a message advising you that cookies and similar technologies are in use.  By clicking “Accept” you signify that you understand and agree to the use of these technologies, as described in this notice.

We may change this notice from time to time, so please review this page periodically for changes.  The “Last Updated” date provided at the top of the page will indicate when the notice was most recently updated.  

[Note: The use of cookies and similar technologies in the EU is governed by the ePrivacy Directive.  Article 5(3) of the Directive requires user consent before cookies can be stored on a user’s device, unless those cookies are “strictly necessary” to providing the services requested by the user. 

This consent must be based on “clear and comprehensive information” contained in a public facing notice.  Where consent is required (i.e. where cookies are used which are not “strictly necessary”), it is obtained, typically, by presenting a user with a “cookie banner” on the first landing page to inform the user that cookies are in use and to seek the user’s opt-in consent for cookies to be placed, i.e. by clicking “Accept Cookies”.  Where a user does not click “Accept Cookies”, but continues to browse the website, some companies seek to allow cookies to be placed, and infer consent from the fact that the user has seen a clear notice and continued to use the website. 

However, from our ongoing discussions with regulators, and based on recent guidance, this type of claimed “implied” consent will not comply with the GDPR standard which stresses a need for active, specific and explicit opt-in consent (e.g. by ticking a box or by clicking “Accept Cookies”).  

Therefore, attempts to claim “implied” consent (such as via continued browsing) will not be compliant with the GDPR and the Directive.  On this basis, many websites are now adopting an opt-in mechanism.]

You do not have to accept cookies and consent can be withdrawn at any time (see How to Control Cookies, below). You can change your browser settings to refuse or restrict cookies, and you may delete them after they have been placed on your device at any time.  If you do not accept or delete our cookies, some areas of the website that you access may take more time to work or may not function properly.
