There has been a flurry of news recently from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) regarding the introduction of the ‘cookie directive’ and what this means for both UK businesses and consumers.
The new rules came into effect on 26th May 2011, and both the government and ICO have since made clear statements that they believe the vast majority of businesses must be compliant with these changes within 12 months of this date.
The new rules specify visitors now are:
Check what type of cookies and similar technologies you use and how you use them.
Decide what solution to obtain consent will be best in your circumstances.

Following our decision to appoint Ernest Grant to look after our pension needs (back in 2011) the process of communication and implementation to date has been efficient, effective and very well received. We have been particularly impressed with their commitment to face-to-face advice. Many of our staff not only received their initial meeting but have met with their adviser from Ernest Grant on a regular basis to receive advice on their existing pensions which has been welcomed throughout.
