The 2003 Regulations implemented a European Directive - 2002/58/EC aimed to protect customer privacy in the electronic communications sector and amended in 2009. This included the E-Privacy Directive requiring consent for storage or access to information stored on a subscriber or users equipment to obtain consent for cookies.
In May 2011 the existing rules were amended applying to cookies and also to similar technologies for storing information. Under the revised Regulations the requirement is not just to provide clear information about cookies used by a website but also to obtain consent from users to store a cookie on their device.
