However, they exist for a good reason. Those slightly annoying popups are helping to remind you that information is being collected about you, and that you have a right to know what that information is, and why it is being collected. The reason we see these is due to a European Directive on privacy, called the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, commonly known as the 'cookie law'.
Our notification, which pops up the first time you visit any of our websites, is designed to be noticeable but discreet enough not to be annoying.
That means that AlbanyWeb customers have help towards compliance with the cookie law, without having to ask - just one of the many things we think about, so you don't have to.
