Why Are We Doing This? - EU Cookie Law

On the 26th May 2012, a new law dubbed the "EU Cookie Law" came into effect that requires any website run by an EU company or individual to comply with a set of guidelines that aim to protect the privacy of website users. This means that all cookies that aren't deemed as strictly necessary to the operation of the site must have first been approved for use by each website visitor.

Websites have been using cookies for years and many see the new law as a hindrance to the effective operation of a website. Regardless of this, Dempsey Dyer has taken the necessary steps to come into compliance with the new law. This means that upon your first visit to our website you will notice a message requesting your permission for our website to place cookies on your computer. If you accept then cookies listed in the "Functional & Targeting Cookies" section of this page will be loaded. Cookies listed in the "Performance Cookies" section are deemed necessary for our website to operate correctly and as a result are exempt from the new law.


Whilst our aim is to provide comprehensive information on the cookies our website uses, there may be occasions where 3rd party organisations change aspects of their existing cookies or include additional cookies to be delivered as a result of visiting our website. This could potentially be done with no prior warning to Dempsey Dyer Ltd and therefore it may take several weeks or months before we notice the change and are able to update our cookie policy accordingly. Should you notice a discrepancy between the cookie listings on this page and the actual cookies that are delivered to your computer then please feel free to notify us so that we can make the necessary changes.
