Cookie Compliancy

Cookie Policy

EU Cookie Law
All websites must inform visitors if they employ cookies AND must get explicit permission from them to store the information. This clearly has implications for many thousands of website owners, given that the majority of websites use cookies. The A1 County Couriers Website – just as almost any other website – uses cookies to improve their user's experience for online tasks. Most noticable saving login details, form submissions and gathering statistical visitor information via Google Analytics.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the organisation that will “police” this directive and has released guidance about how this should be done. The ICO website is also a good example of how compliance may be sought – with the use of a pop-up window approach - A1 County Couriers have also adopted this approach.
