UK Cookie Consent

Shows an unobtrusive yet clear message to users that your site uses cookies.

We think this is the simplest but most effective method of dealing with the legislation.

The plug-in is a straightforward approach to help you comply with the UK interpretation of the EU regulations regarding usage of website cookies. It follows the notion of "implied consent" as described by the UK's Information Commissioner and makes the assumption that most users who choose not to accept cookies will do so for all websites. A user to your site is presented with a clear yet unobtrusive notification that the site is using cookies and may then acknowledge and dismiss the notification or click to find out more. The plug-in automatically creates a new page with pre-populated information on cookies and how to disable them, which you may edit further if you wish.

Importantly, the plug-in does not disable cookies on your site or prevent the user from continuing to browse the site. Several plug-ins have adopted the "explicit consent" approach which obliges users to opt in to cookies on your site. This is likely to deter visitors.
