    New Net Rules Set to Make Cookies Crumble

    Post by sunnysideup on Tue Mar 08, 2011 2:51 pm

    This is interesting, hope it trickles down to us - good idea to make cookies/tracking optional

    However, the directive is likely to have an impact on the more general use of cookies that remember login details and enable people to speed up their use of sites they visit regularly.

    It could mean that after 25 May, users see many more pop-up windows and dialogue boxes asking them to let sites gather data.
    Data delay

    The exact steps that businesses have to go through to comply with the law and gain consent from customers and users are being drawn up by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

    A spokesman for the DCMS said that work on the regulations was "ongoing" but that the technique solutions would not be complete by 25 May.

    In a statement, Ed Vaizey, minister for Culture, Communications and the Creative Industries, said he recognised that the delay would "cause uncertainty for businesses and consumers".
    Cookies list Cookies are used by websites to save user preferences between visits.

    "Therefore we do not expect the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) to take enforcement action in the short term against businesses and organisations as they work out how to address their use of cookies," he added.

    I hope it is an easy step to come soon. Tired of rounding up tracking cookies even for the sites I like to visit. Why do they have to track us anyway?
