Event Info

Cost: Free (RSVP Required)


On the 25 May 2011 the UK became the first EU country to bring the new cookie directive into law - and on the same day, the UK Government announced a 12 month delay on any enforcement action being taken.

At this Bootlaw event, we will look at what the cookie laws mean for start ups and website operators and what you are supposed to be doing over the next 12 months before the laws are going to be enforced.

We will discuss technical solutions which could allow websites to collect user consents to cookies without getting in the way - and we'll be looking for your suggestions.

We will also look at the recent changes to the rules on advertising, which mean that advertising on your own website is now more heavily regulated and see how major web businesses such as Groupon are falling foul of the advertising regulator on a frequent basis.



 As usual the format will be:

6.30pm - Doors open, beer and networking

7pm - Legal bit

8pm - Pizza, more beer and networking

9pm - Head to the pub, buy beer for lawyers
