Quote"does not care about UK laws" is perhaps a bit flippant.
QuoteShow me a country, any country, that (deliberately and knowingly) writes it laws to favor another country and hurt itself
Quote from: MrPhil on January 18, 2013, 01:14:13 PMMy recollection is that the issue was later clarified (at least in the UK) that the law did not apply to session cookies, but only to tracking cookies. Vanilla SMF therefore does not need to say anything about cookies, but if you add something like Google Analytics, you would have to at least warn visitors that tracking cookies are in use.Of course, it doesn't hurt to tell visitors that you use session cookies, but both common sense and (AFAIK) the law (at least in the UK) don't require it.
