Although the law has been interpreted to provide for additional exemptions and exceptions, like the "strictly necessary" exception, website owners would be hard pressed to keep track of every new opinion or wrinkle in interpretation. As such, a clear and explicit cookie notice and consent that a user sees one time, and (usually) forgets is the surest way to ensure legal compliance.
We can do that for you from just £50, which includes backing up your site, adding the notice, and backing it up once more.
Statistics show that a very small number of site users actually opt-out of allowing a site to use cookie information, so there's little evidence to suggest that legal compliance will result in decreased revenue for websites that rely on cookies extensively. In fact, the added transparency increases the levels of trust between website and user. Furthermore, once a user has provided consent for the uses of cookies, such consent may be then carried for as long as the user visits the website.
Contact ConCom Web Design if you have a Wordpress or Joomla site that doesnt already have a cookie notice as we can add one for just £50. We can also add this for any other site, though we cannot guarentee this can be done at a one of fee of £50, but it wont be much more
