Good extension - does what it says.

Excellent technical support when I had a problem with the cookie alert showing up in my site. The tech guys from Cookie Alert got onto it immediately and the site was working with the extension within a few hours.

Despite a small issue after uploading the module, due to my template module positions, the customer support team had this rectified in less than 10 minutes.
I Highly recommend this module to ensure EU Compliancy.

Purchased cookie alert and had a conflict with a java app on our site.

Within 15 minutes i had a reply and after giving them access to our site and ftp i then got a email back informing me they had sorted the problem.

The mod is very good and support is professional.

They didn't have to fix the problem but they did , this saved me and my company almost 8 hours of work that i spent on other things .

Thank you guys

My website uses cookies for Google Analytic's and for a few other functionality purposes.

Since the new EU law came in, I decided to look for an extension. A few I tried were fairly basic and didn't look satisfactory on the site..... until I discovered this little gem.

It was easy to install, but I had an issue getting it to display on the site. A few quick messages to the support team and they managed to sort the problem efficiently.

Really recommend this extension :-)

There are a number of extensions out there, which claim to provide a solution to first-time vistors opting-in to the acceptance of cookies.

This extension is the very first THAT WORKS right away, with minimum config.

Well Done to the Developers and Thank You.

Easy install, looks very smart, no too heavy and works well. Support received within 1hour. Anybody with Javascript conflict, use jQuery-easy plugin here on JED

This is a really nice plugin with all the features I needed. It works like a charm and looks professional. Think its definitely worth the money, way better then some silly subscription.

The only issue I had was with the placement (Joomla 2.5 numbering) but I found out that, in my case, this was position 15. I asked the developers to update the instructions with a little more installation info. Think this would save them the hassle of helping people out with this little issue all the time as the rest is just plain simple.

Be advised that you can't make the box message longer then suggested. This will make it stop working. However, a longer message isn't needed, just refer people to your privacy disclaimer in the URL box if more space is needed.

Today ordered the module and installed it. I had some trouble with my template and asked them for a guideline. In a few hour after several replys evrything works like a charm!

The module is ideal for the changed law here in the Netherlands. I would like to advice everyone to buy this module because its a very simple to install and to adjust to your needs.

Many thanx to the people of for the great support and great module for a very fair price

Regards Maurice

I just installed this module on my business site in light of the new legislation. Installation was very straightforward indeed and a tiny issue I had was resolved in moments by their very helpful support team. The module looks good, a nice professional job - thank you!
