Privacy Policy

26th May 2011 saw alterations made to Regulation 6 of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation 2003 (PECR) which focussed on electronic privacy and in particular the use of website cookies. This resulted in a new EU and UK law being passed. The following is the new addition to Regulation 6:

  • 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.
  • The requirements are that the subscriber or user of that terminal equipment
  • Is provided with clear and comprehensive information about the purposes of the storage of, or access to, that information; and has given his or her consent.

In plain English, the law states those people whose websites set cookies must:

  • Tell users what the cookies are.
  • Explain what the cookies are doing.
  • Obtain the user’s consent to store most (all cookies except one deemed ‘strictly necessary’ require the user’s permission to be used) cookies on their device.
