Cookie Consent: How to Avoid Half-baked Compliance

Original broadcast date: May 3, 2012
On May 25, the United Kingdom's regulatory grace period for enforcing website cookie consent rules will expire. After this date, website operators, ad networks and other technology partners who serve cookies without obtaining valid visitor consent run the risk of investigation by the UK Information Commissioner's Office. In other territories across the EU, cookie consent rules are already in force, exposing noncompliant businesses to the risk of enforcement by local data protection authorities. Despite this, many businesses remain unclear about what is expected of them and how they can achieve compliance. Join our expert legal, technical and marketing panelists as they turn their attention to Europe's cookie consent rules, explaining the new requirement and dispelling common misconceptions about it, exploring practical ways for website operators to achieve compliance and discussing how regulators intend to enforce the requirement.
