The EU cookie regulation prohibits EU (European) sites from storing unauthorized cookies onto the visitor's computer. EU sites must clearly state the intent to store cookies and allow the visitor a cookie opt out process.
For more information, please visit the official site.
With the introduction of PHP Live! v.4.2.112, an option to switch off the cookie use can be done within the setup area. PHP Live! v.4.2.112 reduced the numbers of cookies to only 2 cookies set for the visitor chat area. We have chosen to simply switch on/off the cookies altogether rather then a visual opt out message alert to the visitor. The additional level of notification could affect the number of chat requests. Thus, it is recommended to simply turn cookies on or off within the setup area.
The two cookies the PHP Live! system sets are:
phplive_vname - the visitor's name
phplive_vname - the visitor's email
