Why do you need this?
Inevitably, once up and running your business will start processing details about customers including their names and addresses. For example:
What is a “cookie”?
Sadly this is not edible and is simply a special bit of technology that is sent to your computer when you access a website. The cookie then makes a note of the details you enter and remembers them. Which is why when you go back to a site and enter your details, strangely they pop up before you have even finished typing them! You do have the choice whether to accept a cookie or not-just like the edible ones I guess…
When do you use it?
PLEASE NOTE: this is just an outline of the law. Entire books have been written on the subject, so please contact us if in doubt.
Remember! If you are going to be processing personal details you are likely to have to register with the Information Commissioner’s Office. It is simply a matter of completing a form setting out the types of data you collect & process and for what purpose. The fee is £35/year if you are a small company or £50 for large companies. See www.ico.gov.uk for more details.
