EU - Cookie law compliance (How to?)
« on: May 29, 2014, 04:08:04 PM »
Hi!

The EU e-Privacy Directive was introduced as a way of forcing websites to be more open about the type of cookies they used to track visitors.

So I'm wondering how to set up the cookie law compliance in AbanteCart?
If anyone have any ideas or solutions please help!


An example of the pop-up the visitor will get to see

Thanks for help!

Interesting question.
AbanteCart mostly use cookies to store session IDs for storefront and admin. Not a lot of information saved in the cookies.

You can inspect cookies with Fire Fox

In doing some research today I ran across this -  seems like it might be a solution for the EU directive.

http://sitebeam.net/cookieconsent/


It also offers some in depth site testing -  I ran a free 5 page test on one of my cart test sites that is well developed to see how the cart software reported.   The results were terrific - Very good to Excellent in all categories,  accessiblity,  w3c compliant,  html5, load speed,  etc, etc.  Seems like Abantecart code is as well written as I had hoped when I decided to migrate to it.   WELL DONE - Abantecart code heads!

You can just define your own types of cookies.

There is a next question: Where do I need to copy this code?

This is what I do for some banner widgets I use.

1.Under Design > Blocks  Make a new HTML block   -  Title it Cookie Notification.  I use automatic,  but you may prefer to treat it differently.  Place your widget code in the SOURCE side in the Custom Block Content.

2. Go to your Layout  (Design > Layout)  choose the page you wish it to be on - probably just the HOME page.  Choose your location (there are several empty fields on the page -  enable your new Cookie Notification block . Save your page.   

See if it works, and is where you want it to be.
