What is the EU Cookie Law?

The EU Cookie law is an EU-Privacy Directive that came into action on the 26th may 2012, which means you have to get your users consent to place cookies on their device.  The law was introduced on the 24th May 2011 – but gave business a year to put their policy and technology into action.

What is a WPCookieLaw?

WPCookieLaw is a wordpress plugin which installs instantly onto your wordpress enable website.  Whenever anyone visits your site for the first time since the plugin was installed – a popup will appear specifically asking their consent to use cookies on their machine.

3 Reasons why WPCookieLaw the best WordPress plugin for business?

1) Implicit consent AND Explicit consent options using 2 different forms of notification.

As this law is implemented there are two forms of implementation that businesses are taking.  Either by specifically asking the user to forcefully acknowledge and accept the cookies – this is called Explicit consent.  OR by optionally asking them to confirm  – but by stating that by continuing that are giving the consent.  This is called Implicit consent.

2) We detect where the visitor is located and only popup the message to users in the EU.

By detecting which users need to consent, your traffic is less effected therefore maintaining a good proportion of your sales.

3) Continual support and free updates for life.

As the law evolves – the implementations will change – your one time purchase covers you for future upgrades, so if things change – we change with it and you investment is secured.
