For member countries of the European Union, there are strict standards for the usage of cookies on a website.  EU Directive 2009/136/EC, which requires users to consent before websites harvest data from them, has caused many users to search for ways to comply with this regulation.  

This category contains extensions that can be used to aide in that compliance.  The JED does not guarantee that any of the extensions listed in this category offer full compliance with the regulation.  We recommend you fully test your site against the directive to ensure full compliance as it is ultimately the site owner's responsibility to comply.

If you are unsure of what the standards of compliance are for your country, please contact the government agency in your country that is responsible for enforcement.
