On 25th May 2012 a number of amendments were made to the EU's Electronic Communications Framework - a directive that includes guidelines on the use of cookies on websites. The section of the directive dealing with cookies was drawn up in an attempt to protect privacy and, in particular, to administer the use of behavioural advertising. Behavioural advertising is a way of serving advertisements on websites you visit and making them more relevant to you and your interests. For more information please go to www.youronlinechoices.eu - the guide to online behavioural advertising and privacy. This website is operated by the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) - the industry body for online advertising. On here you'll find information about how behavioural advertising works, how to opt out, further information about cookies and the steps you can take to protect your privacy on the internet.
