The European Union law requires that a website shall get user consent before setting cookies. These cookies include tracking cookies used by analytics services (like Google Analytics) and by embedded content providers (Vimeo, Youtube, Facebook widgets, etc…). Purely technical, short-lived cookies such as those set by PhotoDeck are exempted.
DISCLAIMER: PhotoDeck does not offer legal advise nor qualified recommendations. If in doubt, please consult with your attorney or local government body.
Compliance is not a black-and-white thing however, and two risks must be balanced:
PhotoDeck provides you with several options to help you achieve the balance that is right for you.
PhotoDeck automatically generates for you a cookies policy page based on your chosen option for cookies consent.
This policy is linked from the default cookies consent bar on your website, and you can also add it to your website menu via its dedicated link type.
The full URL for this page is http://YOUR-SITE-URL/cookies-policy.
You can easily change the message displayed on the cookies consent bar. In this case, the link to the default generated policy is also removed, so you can either:
<a href="/cookies-policy">Learn more</a>
<a href="/PAGE-URL-FRAGMENT">Learn more</a>(The page URL fragment is defined as part of the custom page settings. See screenshot for full example)
