The UK government has revised the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, which come into force in the UK on 26 May, to address new EU requirements. The Regulations make clear that businesses and organisations running websites in the UK need to get consent from visitors to their websites in order to store cookies on users’ computers. The ICO has published guidance on its approach to enforcing the new rules – as well as guidance on other new powers coming into force as part of the revised regulations. The ICO has decided on a balanced approach to regulation allowing a 'lead in' period for institutions and others to comply.
Further details can be found on the ICO website.
