Policy cookies in Spain

09 Mar 2015, 08:53

Good morning Karl
Here in Spain we have a law which is mandatory advertise on the law of cookies
As x3 has cookies is obligatory warning, if you can not sanction
How I can add to my x3 that message?
It may be similar to what you have put in imagevue warning that this works
On the net there are many codes of this type but not to have to place, example: http://politicadecookies.com/descargas.php
Am can you help?
Thank You

Not only Spain. The whole EU has that "funny" law.
Mainly, it was in regards of cookies (including flash cookies), but since HTML5 became a standard, the legislation covers also Local Storage (web storage in general). :? It's insane, but it's true.

You could make something like this, with toastr:

There are some misunderstandings about the EU cookie-law. First of all, the legislation exists to prevent websites from tracking private data, that is not necessary for the website to function, unless the visitor is aware of the cookie. You only need to display the cookie-policy opt-out if the website uses "intrusive" cookies, that are not required for the website to function properly.

http://www.theeucookielaw.com/

From theeucookielaw.com/:
theeucookielaw.com wrote:You should classify your cookies into four categories:

Essential - Required for your website to function, for example to mark someone as being logged in.
Non-Essential but harmless - Not essential to core functionality but doesn't get used for tracking a user
Fairly Intrusive - Used to track people but do not provide personally identifiable information, for example Google's Analytics
Very Intrusive - Used to track people and provide personally identifiable information
Furthermore, it goes to explain that consent from the visitor is not required for the first two categories:
theeucookielaw.com wrote:Essential
You do not need to do anything with these, if they are required for the site to function then they fall out of the remit of this law.

Non-Essential but harmless
You should question why they are being used on your site and if you can use some other technology to achieve the same result, technically these fall within the remit of the EU Cookie Law so you should allow people to opt-out, although it has been mentioned by the ICO now that implied consent is allowed.
X3 only uses html5 "local storage" technology to store the site object, and it is used strictly as a functional part of the website. It basically stores the website pages and data objects for more effective caching, nothing else. Thus, it is part of "essential", or at least "harmless".

You do not need to require cookie consent for this, because it is not even remotely related to anything "intrusive" that is used for anything apart from functional benefits of the X3 website itself.

Even Google Analytics is generally considered "acceptable" without consent, and that tracks the visitor!

True Karl.

I've never trusted 3'rd party websites in that context, as mostly it's their own interpretation of law. But since I've fully read that directive, it seems to be true.
Although digging deeper in what they call as "Data protection", I've found more "funny" rules that I didn't even knew about :lol: .

This is the news I posted about "EU cookies law", which is basically misunderstood:
https://forum.photo.gallery/viewtopic.p ... 879#p36879

X3 is only storing "pages" in localstorage, which is simply a functional requirement for running X3. It does not collect data about the user.

Ok, I have a simple solution for those who want/need to add cookies-accept using a plugin
https://silktide.com/tools/cookie-consent/
Image

Simply navigate to admin panel -> custom/javascript/, add the following code to the bottom:
Code
<script>
window.cookieconsent_options = {
  //"message":"Custom message here",
  //"dismiss":"Got it!",
  //"learnMore":"More info",
  //"link": "https://www.photo.gallery",
  "theme":"dark-bottom"
 };
</script>
<script src="//s3.amazonaws.com/cc.silktide.com/cookieconsent.latest.min.js"></script>
It should look like this:
Image

Click Save. Done!
Just remember that after clicking "accept" for the first time, your browser will remember that you clicked accept, so the message will not show again unless you clear all browser cookies (or use "private"/"incognito" window for testing).

Customize
There are a few lines commented out in the options, which you can un-comment and edit. Scroll down on the following page to see options explained:
https://silktide.com/tools/cookie-conse ... tallation/

You can also use the Wizard to customize it, but just remember to replace the src="cookieconsent.js" with src="//s3.amazonaws.com/cc.silktide.com/cookieconsent.latest.min.js", so you don't need to download the JS and CSS files and include them.

Latest release X3.24.0 now includes a built-in EU cookie consent plugin.
https://forum.photo.gallery/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=9445

* Those of you who have already added a 3rd party plugin should disable it before enabling the new built-in plugin.
