ICO Has No Team In Place To Investigate Cookie Law [pcpro.co.uk]

"At present the information has not yet been analysed as the team which will have responsibility for this is not in place yet," the ICO said in its response. "It is intended that once the data has been analysed any organisations not in compliance will be identified, then further action will be considered as appropriate."


The ICO added that sites reported via the online tool may not necessarily be investigated, saying they "are not being taking forward as individual complaints", adding that "the purpose of this feedback form is to help us to monitor organisationsí adherence to the rule relating to cookies, and identify sectors where further advice or enforcement activity may be required".

Universal principle of all legislation everywhere. "Such-and-such is a bad thing, so we will make a law against it and then it will stop happening." Subject closed.

Who needs cookies anyway? I'll just collect the information I formerly stored in cookies on the user's computer, and instead save it in a database on my own server. Everyone happy now?

>>Universal principle of all legislation everywhere [variation]

make a law and hope enough people obey it so we can say it was a success but don't bother with those that flaunt it!
