As some of you may know, there has been an update in The UK and Europe regarding internet privacy laws, specifically in regards to cookies and trackers.
More information can be seen here The Cookie Law Explained
What this means for all of us is that we will be deploying a function that will appear to UK and EU IP addresses and provides them with the relevant information and the chance to opt out.
If a user chooses to opt out of cookies this will impact basic functions of the site
Here are a few examples of this change and how it will affect you;
- “Remember me” will not work anymore as it’s a cookie tracked function, so members will be logged out more often.
- “Already read forums” may not be viewed as read
- Mobile layout choice will divert back to its original state
- The multi quote function may not work
- Any page layout changes
We are letting you know in the event that a UK/EU user reports these functions are not working, you have a base line to help them. Please remember that the pop up will only show up if the user in on an IP address that is UK/EU based.
If you have any questions please let us know.
Thank you for your time
