I received this from the ICO with regard to Google Analytics Cookies.
As we understand it, Google Analytics is a third party service offered by Google that generates statistics about the visitors to a website. In our view, Google Analytics is likely to be captured by Regulation 6. However, we recognise that Google Analytics is a comparatively less privacy intrusive technology. You may be interested to learn that the ICO will be issuing some further guidance before the grace period expires on 26 May 2012. I understand the guidance will provide some additional clarification on this matter.
