    My website is hosted in wordpress.com

    Please,
    Anyone knows how to include a cookies advise to accomplish the EU legislation?

    The blog I need help with is degustamadrid.net.

    Hello,

    I’m pretty sure WP.com doesn’t let users configure cookies. Maybe you can tell us more about what you mean by “accomplish the EU legislation” and we can try to find a way for it?

    Also, in case you’re not aware, there’s also a support forum for Spanish speakers https://es.forums.wordpress.com/ :)

    You are correct. We cannot do any configuring. There is a workaround.

    The following is from our legal team:

    We’re aware of the recent EU privacy directive and the related UK Cookie Law. As of now, the relevant authorities haven’t issued concrete guidance on the actions that are necessary to comply with the law. We’ll be watching as the situation develops and may make changes to our services in the future, if required.

    For now – since sites hosted at WordPress.com do make use of cookies, you may like to flag this fact for visitors to your site. One way to do this is to add a text widget to your side bar and include a link to our privacy policy (which contains information on the cookies that we use). You might also inform your visitors that they can refuse all cookies by changing the settings of their browsers.
