On June 5, 2012 the new cookie law went into the Netherlands. Since this date it is no longer allowed to place unsolicited non-functional cookies with your visitors. You can set up the cookie law via: "Starting point > My Webshop > Settings > General > General webshop settings''. You as a merchant are responsible for the cookies that are placed.
For our customers we have written an article explaining what this new legislation contains and how you can deal with it as a webshop owner. This article is only written in Dutch and can be found here.
