EU Cookie Law - In The UK?

5 replies

If I want to give retargeting cookies to visitors to a UK website, do I need to obtain consent first?

Does it make a difference that hte site is a .com domain from a Melbourne registrar?

    The law applies regardless - open a private/incognito browser window and you'll see how Google handle it if you're based in the EC.

    That said, a lot of sites I visit ignore the EU cookie law completely.

    Obviously not something you're supposed to do and obviously there's a potential financial consequence if you don't do what you're supposed to do in the eyes of the EU legislators.

    What a stupid law it is. Those warnings accomplish absolutely nothing.

    Under no circumstance would someone load a website, get the cookie warning and then back out or even "be careful."

    I found this site very useful for implementing this on my blog:

    Google Cookie Choices (It's google's site)

    It took me about an hour to get it all up and running how I wanted it.
