If you have been identified as the owner of an IEEE website, you need to be aware of the new European Union (EU) regulation called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that takes effect on 25 May 2018 and is expected to have a far-reaching impact on how business is conducted worldwide with respect to the collection and use of personal data.
In order to comply with the new regulations, IEEE needs to look at the personal data collected through cookies – such as a user’s personal address, email address, demographic information, and more. As a step toward the direction the GDPR wants IEEE to move to, you need to add an informational banner on your IEEE related websites about cookies.
