The new European Union Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive “Cookie Law” came into effect on Thursday 26th May 2011.  All website owners will now need to obtain explicit opt-in consent from their users prior to the deployment of cookies onto their mobile devices or computers.  

Your site makes use of cookies to gather valuable information about users’ movements and in line with ICO recommendations each one should be recorded and ranked according to its level of intrusion.

In response to this EU directive, St Joseph's College has requested that MSO conducts a full audit of the site(s) in order to identify every cookie.  The table on the following page details each cookie, its description and the function it performs.  Please note that we have placed no judgement on how intrusive each cookie is.  If you are aware that a cookie is creating a profile of personal browsing activity then you may have to seek the appropriate consent from your site traffic in order to achieve ICO compliance.
