Cookies Anyone? The http kind, that is
Posted by Bev Godwin
Nine years ago -- a lifetime in Internet time -- the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a policy commonly referred to as "the cookies policy. " This policy prohibited federal agencies from using certain web-tracking technologies, primarily persistent cookies, unless the agency head provided a waiver. This may sound like arcane, boring policy – but it is really important in the online world.
Let your voices be heard. Get more background on cookies, the policy, and the new framework OMB is considering and visit the OSTP blog where you can comment. Help us help you.
