Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations
In May 2011, new regulations were implemented into UK law as a result of the EC E-Privacy Directive of 2009. This requires all websites to gain the consent of users before storing cookies on their device (computer, mobile phone, etc). The only exception is if cookies are 'strictly necessary' for the service requested by the user as they are for the Practical Presents shopping cart. Practical Action intends to comply with the new regulations, and is actively exploring ways to do this without significantly degrading the user experience.
