The Changing Face of Cookie Law in the UK Posted by: Lynn on 27/02/2013
These statistics are things such as how many people have visited the website, what type of browser/technology they were using, as well as how long they spent on the site. As a business, utilising cookies for your website is usually an incredibly smart move and can improve business analysis, which ultimately can only be a good thing.
At Screenmedia, we’re keen to keep on top of these sorts of things, so we have compiled a list of what you need to know and how things have changed since the cookie law was first introduced:
- The EU cookie law was introduced in 2009, however in 2010 the government took a year-long pause on enforcement after an industry led campaign.
- In 2013 the Information Commissioner’s Office announced that they will stop asking users for permission to set cookies on their own website, and instead for websites to simply tell users cookies are enabled.
