New Laws for the use of cookies

and other technologies that store

online user information.

On May 26th 2011, new rules governing the use

of cookies by websites comes into force in Europe.

Rather than the "Opt out" option for website visitors,

websites will need to specifically gain the consent

of their visitor and they must "Opt In" to be able to

store cookies on their computer or other devices.

This is expected to be difficult to manage and enforcement

will more than likely be done subtlety and

with encouragement rather than with the

threat of fines and penalty's.

What does the new law say?

The new requirement is essentially that cookies can only be placed
on machines where the user or subscriber has given their consent.
6 (1) Subject to paragraph (4), a person shall not store or gain
access to information stored, in the terminal equipment of a subscriber
or user unless the requirements of paragraph (2) are met.
(2) The requirements are that the subscriber or user of that terminal
(a) is provided with clear and comprehensive information about the
purposes of the storage of, or access to, that information; and
(b) has given his or her consent.

(3) Where an electronic communications network is used by the
same person to store or access information in the terminal equipment
of a subscriber or user on more than one occasion, it is sufficient for the

purposes of this regulation that the requirements of paragraph (2)
are met in respect of the initial use.

“(3A) For the purposes of paragraph (2), consent may be signified by a
subscriber who amends or sets controls on the internet browser which
the subscriber uses or by using another application or program to
signify consent.

(4) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to the technical storage of, or
access to, information--
(a) for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a
communication over an electronic communications network; or
(b) where such storage or access is strictly necessary for the
provision of an information society service requested by the subscriber
or user.
