Admin option to comply with...

"On the 26th May 2011 the EU Cookie Directive became law. The UK Information Commissionaire’s Office (ICO) gave UK websites 12 months to comply with the new Directive. If your website is not in compliance you could be fined up to £500,000.

Under the EU Cookie Directive any cookie deemed as 'non-essential' that is set by your website or through scripts embedded in your webpages will need to be opt-in and would require consent from the visitor before you can set cookies in their browser.

Many websites owners may not realise that their website set cookies, but if you use Google AdSense, Google Analytics or similar then your website will be settings cookies in the browsers of people visiting your website.
