Don’t get into trouble over the Olympics

A lot of our week has been spent debating how to work with client sites when the  “Cookies Law” grace period ends in May, we still don’t have a definitive answer on that one, but there will be more information to follow in the coming weeks.

However, the topic for today is the Olympics, this London Games are less than 100 days away now and for many the excitement is building, but unless you are a sponsor don’t get any ideas about seeing this sporting event as a marketing opportunity!
