Beware of the cookie law!
Is your website ready to face the EU cookie law? If not, you may have a problem. On Saturday May 26th the year which the authorities had given to European websites to meet the terms of the EU ePrivacy Directive came to an end. So what happens next?
The new European law regarding cookies, or small files which websites save on the computers of their visitors in order to track their behavior, came into power this Saturday. From now on, all websites targeting users in EU countries must receive the person’s permission before saving any files on their computer.
Cookies, apart from recording user’s actions on the website for future advertising purposes, are responsible for such useful things as remembering login information and personal settings, providing suggestions based on what you read, watched or listened to earlier, automatically filling in application forms and so on.
