Are you sick of being asked about cookies?MoneySaving Poll Results

For about a year, the EU Cookie Directive's forced UK websites to ask if youíre willing to accept cookies (files that track what you do) on your computer.

Itís to make websites more transparent, and to allow you to stop them tracking if you want to. But often, saying ďnoĒ means you sacrifice usability. Is the cookie directive taking the biscuit?

Which of the following is nearest to your view on the cookie directive?

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
