PixCookiesRestrict
Really worth the money. With a few clicks I had a complete solution to comply to the EU-cookie legislation. No PHP- or JavaScrip coding.

I installed and tested on a local Xampp system and a Linux/Apache Webserver. Php versions 5.3 / 5.2. It is a little bit hard to test and to 100% confirm. How look for something that's not there.

Tested for 2 cookies and 1 local storage (Beez template fontsize). None was sent to the browser before clicking the accept button. i.e. I didn't have to confirm the cookies by the browser. I tested with Firefox with confirming single cookies activated.

1. The sessioncookie was omitted.
2. The multi-language cookie was omitted. To my surprise the multi-language still worked. i.e. I could switch language to read the "EU-cookie acceptance text" and the Privacy Policy in another language.
3. Beez font-size changer didn't work when changing pages. As expected. This one is set by the template and started before other extension.

After clicking the accept-button I got 3 cookies.
1. A cookie from the extension.
2. The session cookie.
3. The language cookie
and 4. The Beez font-size changer worked.

If you use Google Analytics the developer has a free plug in for it. I did not test this but assume it works fine together with his own cookie protection.

I contacted the developer and he promised to add a "regret" functionality with, if possible, deletion of the already set cookies.

Well, with this installed we now only have to decide on the needed texts to be used by the module and the Privacy Policy text about used cookies that might turn up as a novel.
