The next cookie law deadline is approaching

In the UK the deadline for compliance with the EU cookie law has come and gone and either you worked like crazy to get your site reconfigured to be in compliance or you decided to wait it out and see what happened. (Lots of us are still waiting).

But are you ready for the next deadline?

For those of you who have implemented a solution and collected your consumer’s consent regarding cookies you may not know that there is another deadline coming on or around the 26th of June. The date by which at least 35% of third party cookies will have been deleted.

It seems like storing the cookie preference in a cookie may not be the best solution, but are their other options? Yes, Device ID.  

With Device ID a website owner gets to have the value exchange discussion with a consumer just once and then to store their preference in a way that doesn’t get deleted every time a consumer clears their cookies.
