Cookie Consent Laws Come into Force This Weekend

If you are located in Europe or the UK, this weekend marks the beginning of the implementation of legislation controlling the use and type of cookies websites may store on your computer. Websites must now comply with the new legislation beginning Sunday and ask for permission to leave cookies, some of which track your Internet movements.

Although the majority of websites in the UK and across Europe will not conform to the new rules, British authorities have said that they will help rather than prosecute companies that are seeking to obey the rules.
