ICO Changes Cookies On Website

The Information Commissioner’s Office has made a change to way it uses cookies on its website, including setting cookies from the time users arrive.

For those who don’t want cookies, ICO is providing an easy way to remove them.

The aim is to help the company collect reliable information to make the website better, while remaining compliant with rules on cookies and the company’s own guidance.

The key features of the change are:

  • Cookies set on arrival to the site.
  • Users given clear, detailed information about the cookies set and how to manage them, and new buttons allowing users to delete or allow non-essential cookies.
  • New cookies banner displayed. Banner explains that the website uses cookies and that cookies have been set, tells users they can change their cookie settings (via a new cookies page), or continue to use the site.
  • New ‘Cookies’ page (separate from our Privacy notice, but linked to and from it) to increase prominence of the information.

ICO are also taking advantage of a feature which limits the geographical information collected by our analytics cookies.

If you would like any information regarding  website optimisation, contact us at Network Intellect.
