This is Northumberland.com can help website owners change their websites so that they are in compliance with the new law. We are working with web designer and programmer Ross McStay on this project, and you can see his EU Cookie Compliance Demo page here. The page contains the required alert and detailed information on the work Ross will do to your site.
Ross will change your website to make sure the visitor is informed about cookie usage. He will perform the following tasks:
- Perform a full cookie audit of your website in order to determine which kinds of cookies it sets.
- Create and publish a cookie information page based on the results of the earlier audit
- Integrate the alert system with your website and link to your new cookie information page.
- Test the alert system on your website on different browsers (Internet Explorer 8 & 9 and the current versions of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Opera).
