This is the preferred method, as it gives greater control over the cookies set by third party scripts.

Version 1.1.13 of Cookillian has been released today, which addresses a number of reported bugs and adds a new option for cookie auto detection.
A major bug was related to erroneous use of the WordPress wp_print_script action in third party plugins or themes, which in turn cause the Pf4wp framework to behave incorrectly and output multiple copies of the same script.

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 automatically 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. read more →
