Cookie Law Update – This will make you laugh
Whilst researching the spamming aspects of the new privacy laws I made a very disturbing discovery.
If you visit the governments own website http://www.ukonline.gov.uk or worse the courts web site http://www.courtservice.gov.uk the very first thing they do BEFORE anything is displayed is to attempt to drop a cookie. This gets even better the government department responsible for enforcing this act http://www.dataprotection.gov.uk attempts to drop a cookie as well WITHOUT asking.
If those that are responsible for the law can’t follow it then what chance do the rest of us plebs. How they intend to enforce it should be very interesting.
