Cookillian

Extensible WordPress support for EU/UK compliance of the EC Cookie Directive.

  • Cookillian

Note! This plugin has been deprecated; it is no longer maintained nor supported.

Cookillian makes it easier to comply with the EC Cookie Directive (EU Cookie Law), which affects the United Kingdom on May 25th 2012 and other European countries.

Cookillian will automatically detect if a visitor is located in one of the countries defined by you – likely the countries affected by the EC Cookie Direcitve – and will optionally disable any cookies that are set from within WordPress or a 3rd party plugin. The user will then be presented with an fully customizable alert about cookies, and given the option to opt in or out of using cookies.

It will also collect basic information about any cookies set from within WordPress or 3rd party plugins, allowing you to add a description and whether the cookie is required for the website to operate. If the cookie is required, Cookillian will allow it to be set regardless if the visitor has opted in or out. Using a shortcode, a full description of the cookies used by the website can be presented to the visitor to assist with compliance and/or privacy notices.

If the visitor allows for cookies (either through opt in or a visitor outside the countries specified), then additional Javascript can be included at the website’s header and/or footer, allowing the inclusion of, for example, Google Analytics. This allows for better control over 3rd party cookies.

With the included statistics, you can see how many visitors have decided to opt in, out or ignore the cookie alert per country, for each month of the year.
