Re: European Law on Cookies

I believe by using default Kryptronic you're not breaking any laws, they are considered essential cookies (only one, sid, is set) and thus exempt from the law. You only need some sort of "do you accept" message if you use non-essential cookies, such as Google Analytics or Google AdWords tracking etc.

If you just use default Kryptronic you'll probably want a cookie policy somewhere on the site just so you're covered. You can give the recommendations a read at http://www.ico.gov.uk/for_organisations … kies.aspx.

Re: European Law on Cookies

i have used a small DIV slide up box on my blog, which i will implement on my site soon, it is advisable regardless to have something as the EUROCRATS are looking to make some cash from fines I would imagine after all they need cash for the bailouts and what better way to raise it with stealth taxes and red tape
