It is now a legal requirement for websites to let users know about cookies on their sites and what information they gather – and to give users to option of opting out. I did put up a checkbox thing yesterday, but given that I have the option of merely advising people which uses implied consent, I’ve decided to do that.
Frankly, I don’t think that WordPress does anything too dramatic with cookies anyway. Certainly I am not using anything that tracks your browsing habits in order to sell you stuff you never knew you didn’t want.
That’s right. As we all know, it’s a bit of a w*** , this ICO is just trying on or else it’s bureaucracy running away with itself again or all of that but hey – it’s so today, isn’t it? It does look though as if the major dailies and our techie have it right and so you might like to think of what you do on your own sites to comply with the new law.
Please feel free to copy and paste our text which is, after all, just lifted from the article linked at the top.
This is a personal post, not one from the admins. By the way, was it concise enough? ;-)
