For most (but not necessary all) cookies, the website operator needs to tell visitors that cookies are used, what they do, and obtain consent from the user to use them. Many websites have adopted click-through banners for this purpose. More information on the regulation of cookie use can be found on the Information Commissioners website at www.ico.org.uk
