This is an important alert from Osborne Clark solicitors about restrictive new European rules governing the use of cookies on websites. They warn:

“European regulators have never quite got their heads around why cookies are so fundamental to the efficient functioning of the Internet. And, as if further demonstration of their lack of understanding were required, they have tinkered with cookie regulation once again – this time with potentially disastrous results for e-commerce in the EU.”
