    Default 80 Irish websites questioned about cookies

    The Data Protection Commissioner has written to 80 major Irish websites regarding their approach to EU regulations on the use of cookies.

    The sites in question include 5 government departments, the Companies Registration Office, BoI, Permanent TSB and Boards.ie. The sites have 21 days to reply with an outline of their approach.

    There's a full list here.

    ******************************ing EUnuchs in Brussels making life difficult as usual. There is a certain irony in the DPC writing to Weight Watchers about cookies though.

I would recommend folks set their browsers to block cookies if possible. Hell, even this site has been prevented from setting their mischievous data gobblers onto me computer, but no problems browsing all the same.

    All any site has to do to comply is to have a clear link to their cookies policy on the home page which first-time visitors are invited to click on to confirm their acceptance of the site's cookies policy.

    In my experience, the vast majority of websites aren't compliant.

    But only because of their cookies.

    Corruption, waste, incompetence, nepotism, funny expense regimes, absurd bonuses can all proceed as before.....
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.
