26 May 2011
Mayer Brown Legal Update
From today (26 May), new rules come into force on the use of website cookies (and similar technologies such as spyware) which mean that website operators can no longer justify their use by solely relying on website users to change their browser settings to “opt-out” if the website users do not want to receive them.
