When it comes to capturing customer data, European merchants must play by the compliance rules. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
A piece of privacy legislation, known as the “cookie law”, requires websites to get consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on a computer, smartphone, or tablet. All websites targeted towards European Union (EU) citizens are now expected to comply with the law.
The Volusion software is capable of complying with all European Cookie Legislation, provided that you fully disclose all cookies and update necessary store settings. See our Volusion Software Cookies article for all the details.
Please understand that we can’t provide legal advice on the best practice for obtaining permissions required under the law, but you can see the Information Commissioner's Office website for official guidance on complying with the EU e-Privacy Directive.
