New Website Legal Requirements as of May26th

As some of you may or may not know on the 26th of May 2011 new legislation comes into force for any site doing business inside the European Union about the way cookies can be used by websites.

Have already prepared changes or are you waiting to see what the bigger sites do first?

That's more a cake although I like to think of it as a biscuit since it goes well with a mug of coffee.

The regulations aren't clear, but they do say they will be contacting companies who are not compliant. So we are doing nothing until contacted.

The EU regulations on cookies is a single paragraph, this then prompted the ICO to write a 10 page document and somehow they still left it completely open to interpretation because it is so vague.

If you take the regulations literally, then here is what will happen every single fucking time you go to a site:
