EU Cookie Law - How do I make Advance Poll compliant?  XML

Hello Forum,

The EU Cookie law comes into full effect next month affecting all EU websites that use cookies.
I'm no programming expert and I'm not sure how to make the poll on my site compliant with the law.

From what I understand, any site that uses cookies for any purpose other than ESSENTIAL operation of the site (so not analytics or page preferences for example) must provide an overt opt-out section on the pages. The visitor must be able to opt-out before ANY cookies are set.

Does Advanced Poll use non-essential cookies?
It may also be necessary to list the cookies used and what they are used for.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm pretty sure the law only applies to tracking cookies and even then only on major sites. I wouldn't worry about it to much for now.

I am not the maker of the Advanced Guestbook
