Cookie permission legaly required in Europe/The Netherlands
Posted 02 August 2012 - 07:41 AM
I have some feedback for the IP.Board devs.
Since the 26 of may in Europe is is legally required to ask your visitors explicit permission BEFORE writing ANY cookie.
I have tried to comply to this law by implementing some ready made scripts, but that doesn't work good enough. Some cookies are still written, like facebook, google ads, google+ etc. For that I would have to change code in the IP.Board sources, I don;'t know how and that would cause problems when upgrading.
Is IP.Board going to implement a proper system for asking cookie permissions any time soon? In the Netherlands you may get a serious fine, if you are caught writing cookies without your visitors explicit permission.

In Europe and especially in the Netherlands you can get a serious fine if you do not comply to the letter of this new law.

Beyond that, however, as already mentioned this topic has come up and been discussed already.
