Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 10. Cookies and other invasive tracking programs.
    (a) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (b), State agency Web sites may not use permanent cookies or any other invasive tracking programs that monitor and track Web site viewing habits; however, a State agency Web site may use transactional cookies that facilitate business transactions.
    (b) Permanent cookies used by State agency Web sites may be exempt from the prohibition in subsection (a) if they meet the following criteria:
        (1) The use of permanent cookies adds value to the
user otherwise not available;
        (2) The permanent cookies are not used to monitor and
track web site viewing habits unless all types of information collected and the State's use of that information add user value and are disclosed through a comprehensive online privacy statement.
The Internet Privacy Task Force established under Section 15 shall define the exemption and limitations of this subsection (b) in practice.
