PECR– Cookies and Joomla Part 4
Several new product announcements to add to my growing list. The JED now even has a separate section for Cookie Control
8. Cookie Choice is a non-commercial JED entry. It does not block cookies but informs the user, which is what the current interpretation of the PECR regulations is understood to be required.
9. JE Cookies a commercial JED entry. Details are a little light but it offers various colour options.
One I have mentioned earlier 6. Cookie Alert does offer the country determination options, something we have in our own version. We have tested our own version and it works reasonably well, although the impact on checking the country of origin on each screen refresh is something we are giving serious thought to, and would impact this product offering as well.
Our own home grown version is being tested and is working well. One thing we have found is a small problem where if a visitor does not accept the cookies, and just leaves the banner displayed, continuing to browse the site, IF a separate modal window is opened, we have observed a situation where the model window is also presented with the cookie banner. Not every modal window, just some, so we are investigating further.
