- EU Cookie Law - It's Different to the GDPR
Update May 30, 2018
I'm using a different plugin now so here's a new video to help you install and tweak the Cookie Notice plugin.
We All Need to Comply With the EU Cookie Directive
The EU cookie directive applies to everyone who's website can be accessed by people in Europe.
This means all of us
If you have Google Analytics, social share buttons, a shopping cart or similar plugin then the plugin is using cookies on your website. So it can apply to us even if we don't realize that a plugin is doing it. I'd rather be safe than sorry. "I didn't know the gun was loaded" is no excuse.
I've installed a great plugin which is almost ready to go as soon as it's activated but I suggest you do a bit of tweaking as shown in the video. You can also tweak the color settings if you wish. The plugin in called 'Cookie Notice' by dFactory, its free from the WordPress repository and installed in the usual way.
The banner disappears when someone clicks on OK. It's pretty cool!
Thanks for watching.
As always I'm here to help you,

If you live the United States and not running a website that perpetuates fraud, the chance of any EU authority suing is slim to nothing, and slim is on his way out of town.
I was not aware of this new policy - what would I do without your training!!
