The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003(EC Directive), commonly known as the 'cookie law', comes into force in May this year and the Information Commissioner's Office has expressed concern that businesses are not as prepared as they should be. The regulation is designed to ensure that visitors to websites can decide whether or not a website may collect information about them. When fully implemented the legislation could have a significant impact on your business such as hampering the ability to retrieve online data.
It is therefore essential for organisations to have a thorough understanding of the cookie law as failure to adapt could leave enterprises exposed to regulatory actions including significant fines.
