Cookies - not used


Cookies – the law as it stands
New EU laws require websites to gain consent from users before placing cookies on their computers. (The exception to this is when they are used to enhance functionality)
This website does not use Cookies. We agree that their use can bring benefits to both browsers and website providers when used to add functionality and otherwise openly with permission for their use; we simply do not need to use them and so have not deployed their use.

The legislation came into force on 25 May 2011 and requires UK firms to get consent if they want to place cookies onto users' computers. “It has positive benefits as it will give people more choice and control over what information businesses and other organisations can store on and access from consumers’ own computers," said information commissioner Christopher Graham. “Businesses and organisations running websites in the UK must wake up to the fact that this has happened.” Despite the warning, Graham said the ICO was clear the changes should not have a detrimental impact on consumers nor cause “an unnecessary burden on UK businesses.” He said one option could be to allow cookie consent to be given over browser settings. Culture minister Ed Vaizey admitted the work would not be complete by the deadline. “The Government is clear that it will take time for meaningful solutions to be developed, evaluated and rolled out,” he said. “We recognise this could cause uncertainty for businesses and consumers. Therefore we do not expect the ICO to take enforcement action in the short term against businesses and organisations as they work out how to address their use of cookies.”
