Cookies and the new EU rules



8:59 am on May 30, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hi folks

Well with this new EU/GB cookie law stuff coming into farce (mis spelling intended) our website uses 2 cookies for hit count and calendar control .

How do i go about controlling these i have googled but had no luck , I would like a tickbox on the page to say accept or refuse that is the easy bit but how do i then set about actually controlling the setting of the cookies from there PS the site is entirely HTML5 now apart from a few archive pages

Thanks pete .

You shouldn't have to do that.
As the calendar control is needed for the site to work properly.
And what does the hit count do? What hits does it count?

Hi ..
Well the Calendar has a few options that are confugurable per user layout number of months displayed ..

The Hit counter counts the number of hits on the site and sets a cookie that is short lived so that the same IP hitting the site several times is only noted as a single hit .
