EU Cookie Law
Cookies are used by virtually every website. If you have statistics available such as Google Analytics then your site has cookies. Many are hoping that cookies for statistical purposes will be looked on leniently. You might also have 3rd party advertising like Google Adsense and again cookies will be there.
If you are using WordPress there is a Plug In available called Cookie Control by @Sherred and Civic UK which is free to install and is being used on this website.
Don’t be caught out. This law may be somewhat stupid and shows a lack of understanding by lawmakers as to what cookies actually are (true – some can be too intrusive) and this law is damaging in many ways to our use of the Internet. Companies for example tracking affiliate code may now find that some of their network don’t get tracked and paid for the work that they have done. A cookie would show (unless someone cleans out cookies from their browser) a returning customer and credit the sale to the affiliate. That now will be more difficult unless people “allow” cookies.
Be safe and get your site compliant now.
