As a web designer in the UK, the new EU Cookie Law is something I’m (sadly) having to deal with!
[Editor's Note: If it can happen in the UK, it can happen in the United States.]
I’ve been looking at a number of compliance methods and I’ve found one, that I think is the best out there.
From the site:
I really like just how customisable it is – you can either link to the js & css hosted by Cookie Consent, or you can download and host the files yourself. This means you can also customise the design to fit the design of your site. You can also specific what types of cookies you need consent for and even put holding text in for elements which the cookies haven’t been given consent for yet (such as ‘disqus’ comments or ‘social’ buttons).
Another very clever feature is the ‘Allow for all sites’ button on the bar, which if you visit another site also running Cookie Consent, it knows you’re ok with cookies and so you’re not shown the consent bar!
You can see it in action already on my site: JPC-DESIGN.
So if you’re needing a solution for the EU Cookie Law, then have a look at Cookie Consent.
