European E-Privacy Directive : site consequences
A demosite has been made to demonstrate the consequences for consumer's surf experiences when the new amendment on cookies and storing technologies that has been adepted by the Dutch parliament at the 22nd of june will get into force. In this proposal cookies are set as "personal data" and by making it personal data, it will most likely be necessary to register for a lot of websites before you can visit them.
This law still has to be accepted by the Dutch senate.
The demosite is an example of a fictive news website that has some third party services integrated, as most big (e-commerce) websites have nowadays.
