Majority of UK Government sites to miss cookie deadline
There was a article on the BBC News website yesterday that said “a majority of the UK government’s own websites will fail to comply in time”.
“The impression I’m getting from the ICO is that even if there are complaints and you’re found not to be compliant, unless it can be shown your intent was to avoid compliance, then they would work with you,” said Mike MacAuley from the Local Government Association, which has hosted discussions on the issue.
Its not surprising that many Government websites will not make the deadline as it’s a huge task to ‘become compliant” and many of the website within their estate are running on legacy software that would be very difficult to remove all cookies.
