Privacy Policy

"The UK’s NEW Cookie Law - An EU directive setting out new rules on privacy and security with regard to cookies came into force on 26th May 2011. The ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) set the same date this year as the deadline after which it would begin taking action against those who don't comply."

The ICO's general enforcement policy is that monetary penalties of up to £500,000 can only be issued in the most serious cases, where serious harm has been caused and the organisation should have been aware of its failings and taken steps to address them.
