Resource History 

We have updated this policy to reflect the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) Guidelines 5/2020 on obtaining cookie consent under Regulation 2016/679, and the European Court of Justice’s Preliminary Ruling in Planet 49 (case C-673/17). We are of legislative changes to the consent regime proposed by the draft EU ePrivacy Regulation repealing Directive 2002/58/EC (PECR), and will review this policy subject to any changes the latter introduces.

Following the departure of the United Kingdom & Northern Ireland from the European Union, and the expiration of Schedule 5 to the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020, the UK’s data protection regime is now governed by the DPA 2018 anc PECR 2019. We have updated this cookie policy to reflect the Information Commissioner Office’s 2020 Guidelines on Cookie Consent, and the entry into force of the Age Appropriate Design Code in September 2020.
