Tottington Public Band.
From May 2011 a new privacy law came into effect across the EU. The law requires that websites ask visitors for consent to use most Web cookies.
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has announced a new data protection code of practice, which advises on how to protect the privacy rights of individuals while dealing with large and rich databases. This waters down the original EU directive, by introducing the concept of 'Implied Consent'. The end user can, if they wish, disable their machine from recording cookies, and advise is given below on how to monitor and manage cookies.
