Apparently there is a new law that applies to all web sites and it came into force this weekend.
I only came across it by accident and have been trying to find out more, but of course that has just done my head in.
There is an existing law which states that any rule or regulation that is incomprehensible and whose sole function is to irritate and annoy has to come from the EU. And yes, this new web site law is one of their smelly little brainfarts.
This new law is supposed to be about privacy. It is supposed to be about
biscuits cookies. It is supposed to be about giving you a chance to accept or reject biscuits cookies from web sites you visit.
By my understanding [not having a fucking clue what the law is about or even what a cookies is], there are two parts to the law. I have to tell you what my policy is and I have to give you a chance to opt out. I haven’t a fucking clue what you are supposed to opt out of, but what the hell.
My policy regarding
biscuits cookies is quite simple. I can take ‘em or leave ‘em. If pressed I like the ones with jam in the middle and my least favourite is the digestive.
Now I have to ask you if you want to accept them or not. The simplest way is that I give you a chance to mail me if you don’t want them? So please mail me now if you don’t want any
OK. Lines are closed and no one is objecting.
I’m glad that’s sorted.
