Background to the “EU Cookie Law”:

On May 26th 2011 a new EU law came into effect that requires companies registered in member countries to comply with updated privacy law regarding the use of cookies by websites. UK companies had to be compliant by 26th May 2012. Website  visitor consent is required (opt in) before a cookie can be stored or retrieved from a users computer or other web connected device. A cookie is a small packet of information that can be used to store information for the users and/or website owners benefit. Certain exclusions to opt in apply e.g. shopping basket information.

The Information Commissioner’s Office is responsible for the “EU Cookie Law” in the UK.
