What does the Cookie legislation entail?
The cookie legislation has been in force since 5 June 2012. This law describes that visitors to websites must be properly informed about the placing of cookies (these are small text files with information about your visit, which are stored on your computer). Companies are also obliged to explain for what purpose cookies are placed. The Independent Post and Telecommunications Authority (OPTA) supervises compliance with the Cookie legislation.
