ICO EU Directive Cookie Law

25 May 2012
ICO EU Directive Cookie Law

From 26th May 2012, websites must inform visitors about cookies and obtain consent for their use. The rules are designed to tackle privacy issues resulting from the growing use of cookies which track users' browsing habits. The EU guidelines mean visitors must be informed about what cookies are being placed on their machine. However, the ICO has said it would not take immediate action over non-compliant sites, and would instead offer guidance.

Apollo does recommend that companies take action, as fines are applicable for non-compliance. Please contact us for details on how this affects your site.
