Cookie Control

This plugin enables you to comply with the UK and EU law on cookies.

API Key Error

If you are using the free version your API key relates to a specific host domain.

So http://www.mydomain.org might work, but mydomain.org (without the www) might not.

Be sure that you enter the correct host domain when registering for your API key.

The recommended way of avoiding this problem is to create a 301 redirect so all requests to mydomain.org get forwarded to http://www.mydomain.org

This may have SEO benefits too as it makes it very clear to search engines which is the canonical (one true) domain.

Is installing and configuring the plugin enough for compliance?

Only if the only cookies your site uses are the Google Analytics ones. If other plugins set cookies, it is possible that you will need to write additional JavaScript. To determine what cookies your site uses do a a Cookie Audit. You will need to do this in any case in order to have a compliant privacy policy. It is your responsibility as a webmaster to know what cookies your site sets, what they do and when they expire. If you don't you may need to consult whoever put your site together.
