The new EU ‘Cookie Law’ has already featured in a couple of posts on ChurchMag. Now european web users (I can only speak from a UK perspective) are seeing how different ways of how the law is being implemented and not…
There are a vast number of sites that are yet to comply with the law – for a number of reasons – but I think one of the main ones is that they simply don’t understand the law and what to do with it!
From my experience as a Christian web designer, a lot of Church and Ministry sites fall into this category. They’re often run by (wonderful!) volunteers who, very understandably, can’t keep up with all the technical happenings in the world of the web.
This is where the idea for my latest site came from.
I created Church Cookies to help Churches and Ministries understand what the EU Cookie Law is all about and how they can get compliant.
On the site, I’m offering two options to help sites get ‘cookie covered’.
- For the slightly more techy organisation, who are happy to update/add code themselves but don’t know what they need to do.
- The second option is for those who like me to do all the technical things/adding any needed code.
I am charging for this service – not because I’m looking to make money out of people’s confusion – but because web design/development is my living and I need to cover my time! (And if I find you don’t need to do anything – i.e. you’re not using any cookies – there’s no charge!)
So if you look after a Church or Ministry site (or know someone who does!) and need help understanding and getting compliant with the EU Cookie Law, check out Church Cookies and get in touch!
