New guidance was provided by in December last year by the Information Commissioner on how web site owners should comply with The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2011.
The key requirement is that you must ensure that a user knowingly indicates that they accept the use of specific Cookies, before the Cookie is set. There are some exceptions, for example where the Cookie is required for the site to work, this could cover security or checkout processes. However, the Cookie must be necessary for the service being requested by the customer.
If you have not done a Cookie audit on your site, time is running out, if you think you need help, let me know.
