What is a website cookie?
How will the Cookie opt-in affect my website?
Asking users to opt-in to the cookies on your website is most likely to affect your website statistics (some visitors will not be tracked) and your social sharing buttons (visitors will not be able to ‘Like’ pages or share pages via ‘Share this’ or ‘Add this’ buttons.)
What do I need to do?
How do I do it?
We can install a system that will automatically add an alert regarding cookies. It will add a disclaimer to the bottom of your website when a visitor first arrives and a small tab in the upper-left corner that will remain on every web page. You can see examples on the following websites:
- Siteclick - www.siteclick.co.uk (the website you're on currently)
- Nailsea Tithe Barn - www.nailseatithebarn.co.uk
Click to see how it would look on the Siteclick website (A small orange triangle in the bottom-left of the screen and pop-up allowing visitors to opt-in)
Click to see how it would look after a visitor opted in (The small orange triangle turns green)
Is anybody else doing it?
Yes, compliance is now being widely adopted. However, your business is ultimately responsible so the choice is up to you.
This does not constitute legal advice, if you have questions you should contact a qualified legal professional.
If you have any questions regarding installation of the cookie compliance system, please feel free to contact us.
