We'll definitely investigate whether we need to provide users with a simple cookie notice for extensions like VigLink prior to releasing the final version of 3.2.
Well, for The Netherlands, it is pretty clear. I know you probably don't read Dutch, but have a look at this page: https://www.rijksoverheid.nl/onderwerpe ... s-plaatsen
"Rijksoverheid" is the "central government institute". This page of theirs explains the Dutch implementation of the cookie law. You could run it through Google Translate.
This paragraph applies to Viglink:
Tracking cookies: altijd toestemming vereist
Websites moeten altijd uw toestemming vragen om cookies te plaatsen die inbreuk maken op uw privacy. Vaak gaat het dan om ‘tracking’ cookies. Deze cookies houden individueel surfgedrag bij en stellen profielen op om bijvoorbeeld gerichte advertenties mogelijk te maken.
In English (my personal translation):
Tracking cookies: permission is always required
Websites must always ask your permission to set cookies that harm your privacy. These are often called ‘tracking’ cookies. These cookies track your surfing habits and compose profiles for example to enable targeted advertisements.
That seems pretty clear to me. Now this is of course only the Dutch implementation of the cookie directive, but as said before: all EU countries are obliged to implement similar law.
This would bring the need of not only a simple cookie notice, but an affirmative button for the website visitor stating that he or she allows this.
