This follows the UK ICO changing their own website to use implied consent. This action has added further confusion to the rules about this. The entire EU Cookie Law is really a big mess and the level of compliance appears to be very patchy. However the law has not changed and all sites must implement some reasonable action to avoid risk of penalties (unlikely though that seems!). It remains an unnecessary and unwelcome cost burden on small website operators.
Our solution is adapted from the original script we used. It is simple and lightweight and has an equivalent WordPress plugin that I made by modifying the previous one.
If you are a website owner or author – anyone is welcome to use or further adapt our version.
You can download my version of the script here – cookie-warn-bar.zip
- unzip cookie-warn-bar.zip
- editthe script file as required, for example change question text and button URLs
- upload to your web server
Here are details about the Cookie-Bar WordPress plug-in.
