We have been updating our WordPress based websites so they are all implemented with the latest plugin – UK Cookie Consent. This plugin is a subtle cookie consent plugin which complies with the recent EU regulations regarding usage of allowing website cookies.

A user is presented with an unobtrusive notification that the site is using cookies and may then acknowledge and dismiss the notification or click to find out more.

Enabling cookies will allow customers to browse faster through a website because cookies store a small text file which allows bits of website storage on your computer. However there is much paranoia with allowing cookies as people are afraid this will bring on malicious cookies or a concept that cookies will spy on your browsing history.

In essence, allowing cookies just allows for a better web browsing experience and are very useful for online shopping by recording what items you have added to your cart. It is down to individual preference of whether you will allow cookies or not.
