On Thursday 24th May, 48 hours before the deadline for implementing the New EU cookie law (e-Privacy Directive) the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) changed their guidelines on the EU legislation regarding cookies for UK business.
We would like to reassure all our clients that we are assessing the situation and will shortly be in touch to offer a free Cookies audit with recommendations. Our hope is to be able to support you to achieve compliance with the absolute minimum of cost or effort.
We apologise for any consternation that clients may be experiencing about Cookies, but this is an unprecedented situation in the industry. Our aim is to give you only the very best advice - based on a balanced assessment of the ICO's final decision.
Speaking to the BBC, Dave Evans, group manager of the ICO has given this assurance:
"What we want is good compliance, not rushed compliance. If it's focused people's minds, that's a good thing."

We have just produced an eZ Publish content managed website for Aylett Nurseries of St Albans.
This successful local business has been a loyal client of Enterprise AB for many years, and we convinced them to upgrade to the eZ Publish platform so they could finally take control of posting up all their own content.
The world of horticulture changes constantly with the seasons, and now the Aylett Nurseries website can be updated daily and cost effectively by company staff (we include face to face or e-learning CMS training and support in our development packages).
The savings on maintenance means the cost of developing the site will be recouped within months.
We also developed a downloadable e-voucher system and integrated that into the online newsletter registration process. The potential to grow the website into an online shop is good – it’s a simple job to plug in an e-commerce solution to any website on the eZ Publish platform.
Have you got a website that you would like to get control of - to update regularly with new content? Contact us to find more!
I am pleased to announce that Enterprise AB has joined the European Channel Innovation Network*, a trade-stimulation project linking seven science parks and start up incubators in Brittany and Normandy with counterparts in the South East of England.
The cross-channel initiative provides an opportunity for face to face meetings between innovative and high growth technology companies looking to establish partnerships.
We have recently established an office in Nice, in the South of France, so EAB is well-positioned to benefit from this initiative.
At a recent networking event held at Internet World 2012 at Earls Court in April, I had a chance to talk to several delegates looking to promote their software products.
I am impressed by the ideas I have seen from our French counterparts. We may be able to offer product extensions to our some of clients in specific sectors. I look forward to exploring options to develop sales synergies in future.
* Channel Innovation Network (CHAIN2) is an EU funded project set up to help UK companies develop and manage relationships in northern France. The CHAIN2 Programme has been made possible by the European Regional Development Fund.
