Commissioner: Consumers Complaining About Cookie Noncompliance
PRIVACY LAW—UKJune 14, 2012
The UK Information Commissioner's Office says it has received 169 complaints thus far about websites failing to comply with the cookie law that came into force May 26, V3.co.uk reports. Information Commissioner Christopher Graham said the complaints should serve as a warning to organizations that failure to comply with the law can lead to reputational damage. "It's fair to say that some have a little too much rhetoric, but there are many where customers are pointing that well-respected brands are not doing anything about the cookie law and can't understand why not," Graham said.
