Some cookies can be exempted from informed consent under certain conditions if they are not used for additional purposes. These cookies include cookies used to keep track of a userís input when filling online forms or as a shopping card, also known as session-id cookies, multimedia player session cookies and user interface customisation cookies, eg language preference cookies to remember the language selected by the user.
The cookies I use fall within the exception as described on that page. I ditched Google analytics simply to not need to provide details about cookie use. Its just one more way to confuse the end user.
