Cookie compliance made easy
The new EU cookie law has caused a lot of confusion, particularly around the subject of what website owners need to do to be compliant. That wasn’t helped by the fact that the ICO changed their advice literally hours before the new regulations came into practical effect.
To ease the pain a little bit, we’ve released a small library of code, called cookiealert.js which aims to make compliance nice and easy. Using a technique which allows visitors to a website to give “implicit consent”, it’s quick and easy to deploy, with a minimal amount of technical jiggery-pokery. It’s also designed to be nice and elegant on the front-end, so that it isn’t too obtrusive — we found that so many of the solutions already out there were cumbersome, intricate or just plain ugly.
You can check out the project page at where you can download the latest package. And because it’s released under an open source MIT license, you’re free to make changes, adapt it and redistribute it as you please.
And if you’re not technically-savvy, and need some help with ensuring your website is compliant with the new EU regulations, we can help you with advice and technical expertise — just get in touch at email@example.com
