EU Cookie Law

On the 25th of May 2018 the EU Cookie Law takes effect. This law stipulates that if you have any traffic (Viewers / users) from the EU then you must offer up a notification which the user must consent to if they are to continue using your site.

The notification surrounds the basic information found in our Privacy Policy except they (The EU) are not satisfied with simply having a link to it, they want an actual button the user must press to acknowledge that your site uses cookies.

There are exceptions to this rule where you do not have to offer up an accept button as stated here:

Cookies clearly exempt from consent according to the EU advisory body on data protection- WP29pdf include:
* user‑input cookies (Session-id) such as first‑party cookies to keep track of the user's input when filling online forms, shopping carts, etc., for the duration of a session or persistent cookies limited to a few hours in some cases
* authentication cookies, to identify the user once he has logged in, for the duration of a session
* user‑centric security cookies, used to detect authentication abuses, for a limited persistent duration
* multimedia content player cookies, used to store technical data to play back video or audio content, for the duration of a session
* load‑balancing cookies, for the duration of session
* user‑interface customisation cookies such as language or font preferences, for the duration of a session (Or slightly longer)
* third‑party social plug‑in content‑sharing cookies, for logged‑in members of a social network. See more: EU advisory body on data protection- WP29 pdf Read more: Cookies - European commission

We will be starting this across all our sites but will not be using the usual JavaScript version which can be disabled and thus not show. We will send out a Newsletter when fully implemented but for now… are your sites compliant with EU Cookie Law?

Congratulations on compliance. I like that you have it neatly at the bottom and not blocking anything. I've seen some that are really in your face blocking all the content.
