Sweden to regulate opt-in for cookie transfer

Vitdom (2092142) writes | more than 3 years ago

Government 1

Vitdom (2092142) writes "The present government in Sweden has published a proposition regarding "Better rules for electronic communication". Amongst other proposed amendments, it suggests that websites must inform the user of the "purpose" regarding each individual cookie transferred to the user's browser upon connection. Secondly, it is suggested that the user must give it's consent before the transfer of the cookie in question.

The proposition is to be voted by the Swedish parliament on the 18 May this year. If accepted, the law will be in effect in June."
