The Cookies Directive

Many people think this is a big step backwards, some that the legislation is so unworkable it will 'have' to be amended, but, as it stands, UK business websites are required to make this disclosure from 26 May 2012. Fines of up to £500,000 could apply where businesses aren't following the law. 

We are committed to privacy and support current industry initiatives to preserve individual privacy rights on the Internet. Protecting your privacy on-line is an evolving area and this website will constantly evolve to meet these demands.
