MEPs have proposed an amendment to the 1997 ISDN directive that will prevent Web sites sending cookies to customers unless they give explicit prior consent.
They argue that cookies and other Web technologies which gain access to systems without consent intrude on the privacy of Internet users.
But the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) said that any move to outlaw cookies would mean that Internet users would have to re-register every time they used a site, deterring consumers from using the Web.
