In 2012 a new law came into effect in Europe. The cookie law. For those of you unfamiliar with what cookies are. I found a really good definition online.
What does this mean for your website? If you use these cookies on your website, you now have to notify your readers and give them the choice if they want to enter your website or not.
The first time they come to your website they will see a message something like this one.
And they can accept or deny.
Now I come back to the beauty of WordPress. I was able to install the notice for the new law on my website without having to do anything difficult.
I downloaded the following plugin directly into WordPress and activated it on my website. It took me all of five minutes and my website is ready.
NOTE this post was from 2012. Since 2018 the cookie laws are a lot stricker and I now use a paid cookie plugin called WeePie Cookie Allow
