The top European Union court has determined that to store internet users' cookies, website operators need to receive "active consent."
The decision on Tuesday came in response to a disagreement between German company Planet49 and a German consumer group.
The dispute was over the firm's use of an already marked checkbox to gain consent for cookie storage with its online games.
