We have found this Configuration | Cookie Control by CIVIC, we haven't set ours up yet.
Not quite sure which section this post should be in...
What are people doing about their school websites in light of new legislation governing cookies (EU Privacy and Communications Directive) which AFAIK comes into force on May 26th this year?
The ICC Guide suggests that use of 'performance' cookies (track use) requires consent, so anyone with a standard Joomla install will need to seek visitors permission.
Does anyone have a cunning plan for Joomla - say a small bit of PHP which could be used to 'record' consent to category 2 cookies?
What about internal sites (sharepoint, moodle etc?).
There was a thread on here somewhere recently about this.
Of course, the irony of this law is a Cookie is required to save the users preference!
I may add a small bit of PHP to our Moodle to allow the user to choose whether they want the Google Analytics code to be loaded or not.
Has anyone tried to use any internal IT terms and agreements/aup type policy to say they consent to tracking/statistical cookies being loaded on INTRANET applications? Naturally, this is not something you could use on a website.

It seems from the info that our Joomla based public website will be covered by including notice of cookies in the T&C's. I'm not so sure about things like Moodle, sharepoint, OWA, HAP etc, i.e. things that are intended only for staff and students. I guess we can cover them via a change to the AUP ...
I've never been a fan of people who do that... Everyone knows nobody reads the T&C's, so you can't count it as informed consent.
Le [Pre-post] EDIT: Well [censored]... according to America EULA are legally binding. [I'm guessing the same is said for T&C's]
I need to make something that uses EULA's so I can exploit this...
"By using this product you agree to give me [X-13] all of your money and possesions. Including, but not limited to, cash, vehicles, homes and jewelry. You also agree to relinquish all parental rights to your first born to me [X-13]. You will also be obliged to dance a merry jig on every Wednesday at approximately 12 noon."
hmm if I wanted to use the civic cookie control on our joomla install where would I put the .js file?
I have a js folder, which is in the root, and cookiecontrol.js lives in there.
Yeah, you can just relative link or hard link the .js file anywhere you like. I have a single root copy of it, which all the sub-sites link to.
