WebLite enhanced to include new Cookie Policy legislation

June 29, 2012

On 26th May 2012 PECR legislation was introduced regarding storage of Cookies (small text files) on PCs/smartphones/tablets when visitors access websites.

Websites have to advise visitors which Cookies are stored and the purpose of the cookies . They must ask for the visitor’s acceptance that they use the website knowing that certain information will be stored.

The WebLite package has been enhanced to include an implied opt-in statement in the footer of every page. The footer states:

“By continuing to use this site, you agree to our Cookie Policy

Cookie Policy links to a new page which states:  

  • Which Cookies are used
  • What purpose they serve
  • What information they hold
  • How long they are stored for

The Cookie Policy page is different depending on the optional features in the WebLite website.

Currently (May 2012) Cookies are used for the following optional WebLite features:

  • Google Analytics
  • Jetpack
  • PayPal
  • Facebook (AddThis sharing)
  • Twitter (AddThis sharing)

The new Cookie Policy feature is included at no additional charge to current or new WebLite customers delivering added value-for-money.
