New EU cookie law31st May 2012
A brief history
We're always monitoring what is going on in our vast industry and as some website owners may be aware, a new law has been looming over the horizon for some time. As your Agency, we feel it necessary to bring this law to all our clients attention.
The law that has now been passed has caused enormous controversy among the Web Development Industry as misguided and bad for users of Web sites but unfortunately it is now the law.
An olive branch
The law was changed at the 11th hour to introduce 'implied consent', which basically means that instead of cookies being off as soon as a user lands on your site, it is now safe to leave them on, make a user aware of them and gain consent from the user.
If you would like to try and understand this law for yourself, this document has the information you need. We have interpreted this after reading up on this law, coming to our own conclusions as well as seeing what others are advising.
What are we doing about it?
If you take a look at our site www.yammayap.com we have now implemented as relatively unobtrusive a way as we could so that we comply with the law by advising users that the site is using cookies and giving them information on what they are, plus a button to gain consent.
As this took us a fair amount of time to achieve and to ensure that your site also complies, we can implement a similar solution for you from just £50+vat. Please contact us via email or call us on 08456 499 466 if you would like us to proceed.
NOTE: Our clients who benefit from our monthly maintenance packages will receive this service without charge. Thank you for your support.
