Cookie Problems

On 26 May 2011, all countries in the European Union were required to comply with a new EU ruling that stated that any web sites using cookies to store visitor information must first obtain the consent of the visitor. In the UK, companies and web sites were given a 12-month grace period to comply with the new law, meaning that by the 26th May 2012 they had to have implemented a system to adhere to the ruling.

To comply with the EU cookie law, Sound On Sound has provided a quick and easy solution for users of the web site to enable cookies.

On first visiting the site, you should see a blue panel across the top of your screen with a pop-up asking you to agree to SOS cookies being set.
