Understanding the way your web cookie crumbles

On the 26th May 2011, new EU law was passed stating that all website owners must gain consent from their online visitors to use cookies.

Great now tell me whats a cookie? >>click here for definition

If you website has any form of tracking such as Google Analytics or a database to hold any form of personal data, than you will need to be Cookie Compliant.

What do you need to actually comply with?

Most information on this law has been updated at the Information Commissioner's Office website, however, following their video information (see below) a number of companies have tagged on to the idea that everyone needs to be auditted.

Your website can be auditted in under 60 seconds, to verify if you need to be cookie compliant or not. Sadly there are a number of organisations that will offer an audit for a significant fee and provide you with a comprehensive report as to why you need to be compliant.

We decided to be a lot more frank. Within 1 minute of viewing your website, we can tell you if you need to be compliant or not.

Whether your site is pure HTML, PHP or .net we are able to offer a simple good value solution.

What solutions are there?

To comply with the cookie regulation, you simply need to advise the viewer of your website, that you are using cookies, and how you use the information.

If a user has already accepted, they need to also have the ability to change their mind and decline acceptance of using cookies on your site.

So how much does it cost to make your website Cookie Compliant?

We thought you would never ask!

Our price is a one of flat fee of £60 +vat regardless of platform your wesbite runs on.

We are so confident about our fair pricing and no-nonsense approach to this, that we would encourage you to research comparitive prices on your favoured searh engine, and once you have performed your due diligence, do give us a call on 01865 600 866 and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

  • Raw illusions undertook some corporate photography on our behalf. They ensured that the session was unobtrusive and relaxed and produced some excellent results that we can use without difficulty for all our corporate needs. I had no idea the Directors were so good looking. I cannot reccommend Az and his team highly enough.
