Cookie law in the Netherlands

The Dutch cookie law is in force since June 2012. The cookie law (Article 11.7.a of the Telecommunications Act) implies that websites are only allowed to place necessary cookies without user consent. Necessary cookies in this regard are cookies that remember the preferences (e.g. passwords) of internet users. The contents of the shopping cart of a webshop are also part of these necessary cookies. The legislative proposal in 2015 (that has already been approved by the House of Representatives) says that permission is no longer needed for Analytics cookies. It remains mandatory (even after the amendment) to ask permission for e.g. remarketing cookies. In May 2018 a new regulation is active: the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). This script is not tested if this will be sufficient to meet the requirements of this law. You are responsible for a proper implementation and als for changing the script to meet with the requirements of the GDPR.

You can find the complete manual of the cookie script here: user manual of the cookie script.
