Introduction

Site Management, Cookie Control

The cookie's out of the jar and laws are being written to protect consumer privacy. Transparency has become the name of the game and websites have the burden of disclosure and compliance to new government regulations. Pixpro Labs has developed the PixCookie Restrict module and system plugin to comply with these regulations.

PixCookies Restrict

EU regulations
The European Commission requires websites to inform the visitor about the use of cookies on the website as well as it requires the visitors informed consent before the site can store any cookie on the visitors device. PixCookies Restrict is one of the few extensions that actually prevents cookies from being placed.

Control
PixCookie Restrict prevents Joomla! from placing standard cookies on a device until the visitor has given their consent. Once consent has been given, the site will perform as intended. PixCookie Restrict will also try to prevent any cookies placed by JavaScript, however this is dependant on how the JavaScript is executed.

Collaboration
If you want even more control over the cookies on your site, PixCookies Restrict works together with other Pixpro Labs extensions like PixAnalytic and PixTracker. These extensions gives you the possibility to place third party scripts like Google Analytics or Facebook pixels on your website, but still comply with the law as PixCookies Restrict will prevent any script added through PixAnalytic and PixTracker until consent is given.

Functionality
The functionality of PixCookies Restrict is pared with a message module to inform visitors about cookies and ask for their consent. This message can be both styled and positioned via simple settings.

With PixCookies Restrict your site is equipped with top quality technology for website integrity and the protection of user privacy.

Great solution


Posted on 05 June 2012

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.

PixTitle takes the Joomla breadcrumb, reverses it and sets it as the site's title. SEO:ing titles is always up for debate, but our strong belief is that as long as you put the most important word first in the title, you gain more weight in search engines.
