Hi All Just seen this: [quote="EU agency calls for clear consent on indelible and zombie cookies"] Don't just go shoving them down people's throats New, more persistent cookies pose an increasing risk to the privacy of consumers online, according to an EU security agency report released on Friday. The advertising industry is pushing the adoption of new, more "persistent and powerful cookies" which profile users, often without users' awareness about what's happening. Surfers should only be offered these cookies under a system of informed consent, according to ENISA (the European Network and Information Security Agency), which is calling on the industry to explain what it is doing and make it easier to delete unwanted advertising cookies. Cookies were initially used to manage browser-server interaction but this role has been expanded over time to include advertising management, profiling and tracking. Most of the developments were driven by the advertising industry.
About time the advertising industry got told were to go.
