CakeMail & the EU Cookie Law

The new EU cookie law went into effect May 25, 2012. This European legislation requires all users to give websites their consent to install cookies and track user information.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file, typically made up of letters and numbers, that is automatically saved to a device when a user accesses a website. These cookies are then read by the originating website on each subsequent visit. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device and their preferences or settings where applicable. Read more

How does CakeMail comply with this law?

To be compliant with this new law, we have introduced a new setting in the administration panel.

Under Your site settings > General settings you will see a dropdown menu that lets resellers activate or deactivate this setting as required.

If users change their mind about which cookies they would like to allow, we have also added easy access to cookie settings in the footer of the application.
