The EU Cookie Law, or the EU Cookie directive as it is occasionally known, is a law that came into effect at the end of May 2012. The law's intention was to improve online security and advance the quality of data privacy on the web. In a nutshell, the law is aimed at giving users a higher degree of control over the information that websites can store about them, and how those websites can then use that information.
The implementation of the Cookie Law in May 2012 meant that a number of practical changes were required on websites in order to implement a suitable method of 'complied consent' for website visitors. These changes are required in order for websites to keep storing cookies about users, which is important for functionality purposes as cookies often record information regarding language settings, and what items are in a user's shopping basket. However, there are still certain instances where websites can bypass this law if the functionality of their website absolutely depends on storing cookies.
The law applies to all Member States of the European Union, but if a site based outside the EU is targeting visitors from inside the EU, they will also need to abide by the same laws.
