New Website Cookie Law Is Now In Force
The new regulations have been put into place to show the public we have the option to disable these cookies if you want to. The ironic thing is this, we always need cookies to use the internet, so if the customer chooses to disable them, it sends another cookie to tell the site it doesn’t want to use them!
There are several different views on this new law – some believe that its nonsense, and others believe it’s a step in the right direction. Either way, it’s now the law, and there will be penalties for non-compliance. The regulations don’t apply to every website, but we suggest that you update your website now anyway, because if you make changes in the future, you may fall under the new law. In order to be compliant, your website needs to explain to your customer what cookies are and how to disable them if you want to. This involves an update to your front page and the addition of an external link. You can always contact oneweb if you want help in complying with this process.
