This week, there was another major happening in its life, when its own managers in UK law changed the way they’re implementing it!
In the UK, the Cookie Law is administered by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and this week, they announced on their blog that they are taking down their own ‘cookie consent’ banner in favour of using the ‘implied consent’ method (which I’ve used from the start on my sites!).
To celebrate this change (which will hopefully soon see the end to all those annoying banners – if you’re in the UK anyway), Silktide, a web development company who have been excellent ‘anti cookie law’ campaigners have created this rather wonder infographic:
This doesn’t mean that the law is dead, just a VERY STRONG indication that as long as you tell site visitors what cookies you’re using (and give them info on how to turn cookies off) all is well.
If you’re a webbie in the UK – how do you think this will affect you?
If you’re a webbie in the US – what are the chances this kind of law will come into effect in the US?
