Cookie Opt In

European Union law state you must ask permission for cookies. This plugin handles that for you.

IMPORTANT NOTICE 2015:

  • This plugin has not been updated in two years and is not in active development since then, all information here is dated august 2013 !
  • Most important reason for not being developed actively any longer is that European Law on cookies has changed (again) and most websites no longer need to ask permission to use cookies. Nowadays you only need to actively inform your visitors about the use of cookies. This plugin would be overkill for that.
  • This plugin in it's current state is not compatible with WordPress 4.1 and up, and most likely not compatible with WordPress 4.0. Due to budgetting and planning issues, this will not likely change in the near future.

European law states:

  • A website must inform the visitor about both presence and function of each cookie the website creates
  • A website must ask permission for all cookies other than cookies required for the correct function of the website

Cookies you ARE ALLOWED to create WITHOUT permission are * Session cookies * E-commerce cookies that provide a function for the visitor, like shopping cart or product filter settings * Cookies that define the cookie-preferences of the user

You still need to INFORM the visitor.

Cookies you are NOT allowed to create without permission are * Analytics cookies * Advertisement cookies * Any cookie from a third party (i.e. e.g. neither your website nor your visitor)

Again, you also need to INFORM the visitor.

This plugin will handle all these for you, but it takes some configuration. If the "offending" scripts are added by action, you can configure the plugin to remove_action it when appropriate. If an action-removal is not possible you must adapt your plugins and themes.

Technical instructions are available in the plugin after installation. Also help is available*, for contact details, see the plugin admin pages.

(*) Pricing for help, if applicable, available upon request.
