Techblogger seminar on cookies law and usability

So, in advance of the expiry tomorrow of the ICO’s one year grace period for complying with the new cookies law, you’ve carried out your website audit and privacy impact assessment, identified the most appropriate way to obtain consent from users, and have implemented (or in the process of implementing) the necessary changes to your website.*

But did you think about usability and accessibility when developing your solution? Will it work on a mobile device? What about different browsers? How does it impact upon the customer journey? Might it put people off using your website? Will a visually impaired user be able to use it? Might your solution have unwittingly have put you in breach of your obligations under the Equality Act?

To help answer some of these questions, or at least set the background to facilitate a discussion amongst those that might have the answers, I’ve been invited by the Scottish chapter of the Usability Professionals Association to host a seminar on the new cookies law. For those of you that attended the User Vision seminars earlier this month, this seminar will provide a similar overview of the law, but will also look at the obligations of service providers under the Equality Act, and then go on to look at some of the solutions being adopted from a usability perspective, and question whether there is a better way of doing things.

Event details
The event takes place on Tuesday 12 June.

To find out more information and to register, follow this link to the SUPA website. The event is open to non-members as well as members, so if you are interested in learning about the usability issues, or want to share a cookies solution that you think ticks the usability boxes do come along.

Hope to see you there!

*If you’ve yet to start then I’d recommend reading our quick guide (PDF) to compliance with the new cookies law and our cookies law resources page.
