  • Is your website missing Cookie Policy?

    The EU ePrivacy Directive (AKA the Cookie Law) come into force on May 2011 and was adopted by all EU countries. Many countries have not taken a strict stand for applying the cookies policy law. But now it is finally no longer an option to not show cookie policy info when the user enters your website. You can face a big fine if you do not start showing a Cookie Policy info to your website visitors!

    What are Cookies?

    Almost all websites use cookies. Cookies are " little data files" that store information in peoples' web browsers (like Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari and so on). Some websites contain hundreds of Cookies.

    Why are Cookie Policy needed?

    The Cookie Law aims to protect the privacy of EU citizens as they use the internet, and actually covers several aspects of privacy, not just cookies. The UK Information Commissioners Office (ICO) says:

    Do you already have cookie policy info on your website?“Cookies or similar devices must not be used unless the subscriber or user of the relevant terminal equipment:

    (a) is provided with clear and comprehensive information about the purposes of the storage of, or access to, that information; and
    (b) has given his or her consent.

    The Regulations are not prescriptive about the sort of information that should be provided, but the text should be sufficiently full and intelligible to allow individuals to clearly understand the potential consequences of allowing storage and access to the information collected by the device should they wish to do so.”

    What can ignoring Cookie Policy mean for website owners?

    Your website must comply else you face an investigation and potentially a €500,000 fine.

  • Puuttuuko nettisivuiltasi vielä Evästeen Seloste?

    EU:n ePrivacy Directive (AKA - Cookie Law) tuli voimaan EU:ssa jo vuonna 2011. Monet maat ovat kuitenkin vitkutelleet Cookie Law:n eli Evästeet lain täytäntöön panossa. Nyt nettisivustojen omistajat eivät enään voi vitkutella Eväste infon ilmoitamisessa nettisivuillaan vieraileville. Nettisivujen omistajaa voi odottaa iso sakko, jos jää kiinni nettisivuista, joilla ei vierailijalle näytetä Evästeen selostetta!

    Mitä ovat Evästeet eli Cookies?

    Melkein kaikilla nettisivuilla käytetään Evästeitä. Evästeet ovat " pieniä tieto-tiedostoja" jotka varastoivat tietoa käyttäjän omalle internet selaimelle (kuten Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari jne). Joillain nettisivuilla on jopa satoa evästeitä.
