OS and version

Browser and version (any)

Description

 

The EU cookie law requires that if a website uses cookies, it requires informed consent from the user. As becomes clear from the documentation on the Get(PersistentID) function, webdirect uses cookies, but to my knowledge there is no systematic documentation about how Webdirect uses cookies. This means that I can not inform my users about how my Webdirect-based website uses them. This in turn means that I can not use Webdirect in Europe.

 

I would appreciate such documentation to be on-line available for my users' information and my information.

 

The documentation should list all data being stored in cookies and mention how long the cookies persist.
