Would you really expect that to be the case?Quote:
So this law only covers cookies?
It isn't. They [computer law making folk] had figured that one out before the end of the last century i.e. have long endeavoured to make law that either covers or can be easily extended (without pesky votes etc.) to encompass tech evolution. This is an update of the existing law from 2003 which already refers to storage and retrieval of "information" on our kit - the changed/new bit is that our consent must be obtained.
