What do you need to do to comply with the cookie law?
- Identify which cookies are used on your website. Find out if they fit under the Cookies law or not.
- If you have cookies that fall under the cookie law - inform the users clearly about the cookies that are going to be saved on their PC.
- Allow users to accept permission
- Allow users to decline permission. This usually will mean that some functionality of the website will become unavailable, so you should inform the user about that as well.
