UK Cookie Law

Post by jonesanthony » Thu Jul 05, 2012 3:06 am

Noticed that Ukrgb hasn't implemented any cookie policies or opt in from when the law changed in May 2012.

Has this been overlooked? I'm willing to point you in the right direction, it's. 5 min job when your using joomla, which you are.

Your right! The information commissioner here in the uk has superceeded the eu legislation.

Visitors to websites are presumed to give implied consent to use cookies.....

So all that needs to be added to comply is....a cookie policy for ukrgb and a message to say the site uses cookies.

Why would UKRGB comply to a law which the law makers don't comply to themselves - and in actual fact is impossible to comply to for e-commerce sites. There is no real guaidance on what compliance even looks like - what a bunch of guff... what next - no bent banana's??

I think the law dictates that in the UK they are called 'biscuits' not cookies.

Don't say that, they'll want to start charging VAT on them!

Browsing UKRGB is going to make a right mess of the computer; biscuits on the hard drive, tea on keyboard.....

I'll get my coat.
See you on the water!
