What is the EU Consent Policy
You should also note the Law is EU-wide but implemented differently in each country, I have no idea of the logic behind that. In theory, this means if your website or app serves users outside of the UK, you will also have to abide by the consent policy in that country. That said, I believe compliance in your country location is the minimum requirement to comply.
Who does it Apply to
All business’s, websites and apps that deploy cookies, tracking software or store customer data.
How do You Comply
Install the Cookie Notice Plugin
There are over a dozen EU Consent Policy WordPress plugins to choose from, after some research I installed Cookie Notice from dFactory. It’s FREE, has a 5 Star rating, 100k+ installations and continues to be regularly updated.
Other factors important for me were options on how the Cookie Notice is presented to users, customisation, and it’s appearance on Mobile devices. It ticks all the boxes; looks great, easy to use and set up.
A recap below and a quick 4-minute video demo of the process I found on YouTube.
