What are Cookies?
Cookies are mainly used to make the web experience better, by automatically logging you in to a site on return visits, or remembering certain settings.
However some Cookies are used to collect data across websites you have visited, creating a ‘usage profile’. This profile can then be used to decide what content or adverts to show you.
The Cookie Law is a piece of privacy legislation that requires websites to obtain consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on a computer or any other web connected device.
It has been designed to protect online privacy, by making consumers aware of how information about them is collected by websites, and enable them to choose whether or not they want to allow it to take place.
Under the old laws websites could place Cookies on a visitor’s device without their knowledge or consent. Now all businesses running websites will need to ask for the viewer’s consent before storing a Cookie on their computer.
