Bird & Bird's data protection team is pleased to invite you to its 'Practical cookie compliance workshop' on Tuesday 8 November from 15.30.

Implementation of the cookies Directive is gathering momentum.  Please join us in a special workshop to review the latest on implementation, to review different ways of achieving compliance and to discuss what you and others are doing to prepare for this.  We will have speakers from across Europe and the US and with legal and industry input.
