Following on from the ICO's recent admission around its cookie consent mechanism (for further details see our previous post here), the ICO website was down for a period of time at the end of last week. But now it is back and with a new and "improved" cookie consent mechanism (see here).
Key points to note:
- There is no more implied consent by continued browsing – website users have to save and close the cookie notice in order to gain access to the ICO website
- The notice contemplates two different types of cookie (necessary and analytics) – necessary cookies are defaulted to "on" and analytics cookies are defaulted to "off"
