Efiction and EU Law

Hi !

I have one question regarding new EU Law, which states that no cookies must be "installed" on user's computer, until he/she specifically allows it.

Do we have any plugins that take care of this problem? In my country this Law became active in last week and now I am wondering what I need to do to get Efiction in compliance with this.

All help or comments are appreciated.
Andy

The script 3.5.3 as released has been abandoned since 2010, so I cannot say how it might comply. We'd have to pull together a mod or just use this site's services which seem alright.

As for going forward with efic 4 / efiction +, I'll add it to my feature request list.

I am rebuilding efiction! Join us on irc! #efiction at www.mibbit.com Instructions for irc 😀 Alpha released!

I'm not sure of any way to make the script itself complaint. If I had to deal with the new law, I would just set up a new home page for the efiction site which explained the cookies used on the site and have two clickable options available, one to enter if the user agrees with the non-essential cookies and one that won't allow entrance if they opt out. From this article: http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2012-05/25/cookies-made-simple, it sounds like you only need permission for using non-essential cookies, and I don't really think efiction drops any of those. I think it would only be a problem if you have Google Analytics or some type of tracking software installed.
