Unfortunately the new EU cookie law has now deemed the majority of EU sites illegal, and anyone who’s thinking of kicking this into touch is likely to be found out.
So Where Did This Law Come from and Who Cooked It Up?
What Should You Do?
There are 3 things you can do…
1. Ignore the Law
“The law is an Ass and I Kick It!” – I’m not quite sure who said this, but this type of response to the recent EU cookie law will get you into trouble sometime soon.
2. Stop Using Cookies
3. Implement a Solution and Ask for Permission
The safe and likely option for most.
The Cookie Solutions
1. A pop up solution, but you may find a browser just blocks these automatically.
2. An accordian is a better solution, which slides down from the top of the screen.
The solutions are a bit painful but shouldn’t be too expensive, – it’s just a chore (THE BAD) to get your web developer to implement it, or you can try it yourself by installing this FREE Cookie script from here. Reveal Cookie Script >>
So What Now?
So how long have you got? Well basically your time is up. You should have implemented this by the 26th of May 2012.
