BBC News - Cookies: Majority of government sites to miss deadline
Well that's all right then! :rolleyes:
According to the ICC document I've just read it seems we'll be OK with a cookies policy as ours fall into either category 1 (functional cookies i.e. site won't work without them for Moodle) or category 2 (Google Analytics)
In the case of moodle installations - one presumes it's staff, students and parents who can actually log in to it, not members of the public. Cookies are only created once logged in. Just amend the login page of your moodle install to state that by logging in to this system you accept the necessity for cookies to be placed, and if folks don't agree, don't log in. You can't accidentally land on a Moodle page and have cookies created.
Anyone know how the BBC has implemented their cookie 'warning'? It's a great idea - a subtle banner, that's actually part of the webpage (I think) that only shows once - and only allows you to 'Continue' or 'Find out more'. No option to say no, but it does give you the opportunity to 'change your cookie settings'. This looks like an elegant solution to me; if only we could figure out how it was done....!
Just found Ghostery which is handy for showing up trackers
