EU Cookie Law Compliance

The ‘new’ EU Cookie law came into full force in the UK on 26th May 2012.

Compliance with this law need not be expensive or complicated.

Simply, web sites have to seek permission to use cookies. In many circumstances this consent can be implied, so the site user does not have to take any action.

This site complies with the law by informing the users on the first page visited, and in the Privacy Policy.

Sites are also required to give information on the use of cookies, usually in the ‘Privacy Policy’ wording. This does not need to be long or complex.
