Beware: EU Cookie Legislation Coming into Force

If there’s anything you should be aware of at the moment, it’s this: The Cookie Law.

In a nutshell, it requires websites to obtain consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on a computer or web-connected device (e.g. smartphone or tablet).

Almost all websites use cookies or equivalent, especially company websites & e-commerce websites.

You have until 26th May 2012 to comply with this new law. If not, you run the risk of enforcement action – this could mean a fine of up to £500,000.

As always – Senior is here to help! We’ve put together a practical package that meets all generally agreed acceptable requirements, so you don’t become a target of this new legislation.
