Cookie Law Compliance

You may have read recently about a new European Law relating to website cookies that came into effect on 26th May 2012. You may also have noticed, when visiting other websites, warnings that pop up informing you that cookies are in use on the website with the option to accept or decline these cookies. The law that defines what details websites can record in text files called cookies. Cookies are widely used to customise what repeat visitors see on a site and by advertisers to track users online. The new regulations say websites must get "informed consent" from users before they record any detailed information in the cookies they store on visitors' computers.
