Unfortunately the way that this has been implemented in phpBB is, I believe, flawed.
There are three basic rules for complying with the Cookie Law
(source - ICO : https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/gu ... hnologies/)The rules on cookies are in regulation 6. The basic rule is that you must:
- tell people the cookies are there;
- explain what the cookies are doing and why; and
- get the person’s consent to store a cookie on their device.
Furthermore this implementation does not, as far as my understanding goes, comply with the requirements of some other EU countries.
