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.

I first had involvement with the team when my colleague (Company Financial Director) decided to change our company Pension / Financial Advisers in 2005. I met with an adviser and at the time and as I was retiring in 12 months I had some concerns about a new company and what advice I would receive. The adviser was able to explain what he and his associates thought would be the most beneficial. I am delighted that they have now started up there own organisation Ernest Grant and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with the team.
