Changes to the rules on using cookies and similar technologies for storing information
It's still early days with the changes to the laws regarding cookies and website owners have been given a year to comply even though they came into force this week.
However, we will be monitoring this as more guidance is issued and some potential solutions emerge. The bottom line is that you shouldn't have anything to worry about right now.

ICO Cookie Updates
1st June 2012
Companies were given a deadline of 26 May 2012, after the rules were first introduced, to overhaul their websites and comply. Now that this deadline has expired, ICO can impose fine of up to £500K where websites are clearly in breach of the code and have taken no action to comply.
