Why you need this extension:
The new rules apply to the UK websites which receive visitors from anywhere in the EU, and came into force on May 26 2012, enforced by the Information Commissioner’s Office. Originally the rules were that all visitors should be able to opt out of receiving any cookies, but have since been amended to allow what is termed ‘implied consent’.
What Jigoshop Cookie Bar Does:
Which is exactly what the Jigoshop Cookie Bar does – the first time someone visits your site they’ll see a welcome message which allows them to ‘imply consent’ by continuing to use your site. The message won’t appear once consent is given (unless they visit after deleting all their cookies), and you’ll comply with all current privacy and data regulations.
