Summary

There is a requirement under the amended E-Privacy Directive and the UK Regulations to

  • tell users about cookies and what you are going to use their information for; and
  • obtain their consent to the placing of the cookies..

The Data Protection Act also requires users to be provided with certain information. A simple way to provide internet users with information is to provide them with a privacy policy, a data protection notice, or both. The privacy policy or notice if used properly can meet the information provision requirements of both the Directive and the Act. For further information on implementing a privacy policy or data protection notice online see the OUT-LAW.COM guide on Data Protection.
