★ As you may already know, the EU Cookie Law came into effect on the 26th May 2012 , while there are many interpretations of the new Cookie law as so far as implementation and enforcement goes , the law clearly states that you can use Implied Consent, or Explicit consent.

Cookie Monster is used by Akeebackup.com and many other sites successfully. It meets the Requirements of the EU Cookie Law and very importantly, it will not irritate your Visitors, or make you site less Functional. Even the Developer of a Non Commercial extension makes some unqualified claims because of a poor understanding of the basics of the Cookies law and working on assumptions, don't breaks your sites functions.
★ If you want to use Google's or Woopra or both tracking services and have the required Tracker ID number you can set this to either "Implied Consent" - this means that the Analytics will run until the Visitor declines, "Explicit Consent" meaning the Google/Woopra Analytics will run only when the Visitor Accepts Cookies and optional anonymize IP or set to "Normal with no Analytics" is you site does not use Google Analytics.

★Google Analytics - You can choose to use the plugin to notify Visitor that you are using Google Analytics Tracking and request them to Accept or Decline. You can additionally use the plugin to load Google Analytics on your site, just add your Tracking ID in the Plugins parameters.

I bought this about 30 minutes ago. I couldn't get it working so I e-mailed the developer. He got back to me exactly 15 minutes later and it was a problem with another module loading and old version of JQuery. I upgraded that and it works exactly as it needs to.

Brilliant component to deal with this EU cookie law and brilliant support.

Too late i saw the many problems reportetd on the developers site, that most people have poblem to get it work. In my case the cookie will stored before the script beginns to work, it doesn't matter if you accept or deny the cookie. And it have big problem mit other jquery components. Short: Stay away, it doesn't work.

You forget to mention that you did not ask for support about your misconception, Your forgot to mention where your Cookie is generated from or if you even understand the Cookie Concept. If only you had used the "Ask a Question" prompts ...

All you have done is Install the plugin, make a rude post about the plugin being fake and then make this one Star "Review" . In spite of your actions, you still received a Refund, long before this Review was made.

Fear of the law made me spend some money ... I first thought this might need a lot of adjustments, but it is just installing, enabling the plug-in and it's up and running. Nice acceptance/decline buttons shown once and the visitor is done with it. Apart from the Cookie control it serves as a great tool to include Google Analytics, I found. No hassle with editing original template files and add the full script. Just entered the ID and the code showed in the source! "Me want cookie!"
