In 2012, the EU created a law that required all sites using cookies to notify visitors that their personal data was being captured – with those really annoying pop ups.
However, the European Commissioner has requested the law be relaxed by allowing users to change their privacy settings on their web browser. Once this is set up, websites will be able to detect the setting and won’t have to show the notification.
All will be revealed in the new year.
