Websites are breaking the cookie law, says watchdog
Friday 03 August 2012
Many of the most popular websites in the Netherlands are not operating within the new cookie law introduced in January, communications watchdog Opta said on Friday.
Cookies are text files used to track website visitors' behaviour.
Opta did not say which websites it looked at.
The makers of browsers such as Firefox and Chrome are developing a system whereby the user is asked for permission just once on the browser.
