Google had recently made a cookie announcement, where it has confirmed that third-party cookies will be made obsolete by 2022.

Why is Privacy Policy essential?

Privacy Policy is essential for every user that browses on the internet, since cookies by third-parties used to collect personal information of people visiting their website without their knowledge. Many browsers like Safari and Firefox have already disabled third-party cookies. Whereas Google will be disabling third-party cookies in 2022, which means Google won’t be able to collect information of users browsing on Google. Google Ads will no longer be able to show personalized ads.
