‘What All Marketers and Businesses Should Know About the EU Cookie Law //7 Essential Steps Towards Cookie Compliancy’
Think the EU cookie law only affects large business? Think again. Chances are it also impacts on you. If you are a small business owner or even a blogger you need to ensure that the websites that you own are EU Cookie Law compliant and are operating within the confines of the law.
A survey conducted by KMPG revealed 95% of websites are yet to be compliant. Is this you?
It’s important to note that failure to comply with the EU Cookie Law could result in being served an information notice, then an informant notice. The maximum penalty is £500,000 if you are found in serious breach.
To help you get up to speed on the EU Cookie Law I’ve created a FREE downloadable fast digest summary entitled ‘What All Marketers and Businesses Should Know About the EU Cookie Law // 7 Essential steps towards cookie compliancy’
It focuses on:
- What the EU cookie law is
- How it may affect you and your business
- What you should be doing to comply
An important development to note: At the eleventh hour of the law becoming live on the 26th of May 2012, the ICO announced a change in its stance in how it interprets the EU cookie directive. To help you get your head around the change I’ve uploaded the ICO video update below. The video further explains the ICO stance in interpreting the EU Cookie Law. You will also find a link to an interesting article, which analyzes the ICO approach to interpreting the EU Cookie Directive here. Useful links and videos for further information, guidance and advice can also be found here.
I’ve found some great information over at the CMSimple Forum (thanks Marksteven). You can view a table which covers the degree of implementation across EU member states. The information can be found here.
