During my training the other week Rebecca showed me, and we installed on the St. Andrew’s Monkseaton site, the Cooke Law Info plugin. Simple enough to do and I thought “well that’s us sorted”.
However, I happened to actually look at what the plugin does by default. The main thing I noticed is that the URL automatically generated for the “Read More” button/link just takes you back to the homepage of the site. Instead that should be going to some blurb about what cookies the site uses and how you handle the information gathered by them. So I did some digging to find what cookies our site was generating. WordPress uses a few, mainly to track site admin’s, but also commenters’ information. The Cookie Law plugin itself creates a cookie, to track a user having clicked the Accept button. Then, if you have Google Analytics enabled (either going to your own account or one that Rebecca is managing), that also has cookies that track stuff (at least according to the cookie info from the ICO website!).
So, I put together this page] that is linked from the cookie law bar and also as a link in the footer of each page:
