Fancy a Cookie?

It’s old news now, but about a year ago, the EU (in its infinite wisdom) decided that all European websites needed to inform users that the site uses cookies. Pretty soon, most sites started showing a little pop-up at the top or bottom of the page saying, in essence, “This website uses cookies. Deal with it.”

It’s become so commonplace now that I hardly notice it. Except when, last week, I stumbled across the site of Jaffa Cakes. Across the top is the usual banner, saying

United Biscuits (UK) Limited uses cookies on this website.

Good to know that their produce is getting put to some use, then…
