The Cookie Law or ePrivacy Directive
As I am sure you are aware the ePrivacy Directive will come into force in the United Kingdom on the 26th of May. We are not going to repeat what countless others have said but if you are interested in learning more here are a few links:
- Wikipedia on HTTP Cookies don’t know what a Cookie is? this should help.
- YouTube Video Summary our favourite.
- An article from The Register.
- The Cookie Collective.
Here at PKT we had the same problem you are probably having in that our website is effectively illegal or will be after the deadline. As such we looked around for something we could do to make our site compliant with the ePrivacy Directive. After a bit of head scratching we came up with the tool you should have seen when you visited our website for the first time (and every time depending how you answered).
