I'm not sure where to post this, as there are two issues here, but I'll start in B&L as that's the basic question.
I have a client using Google Analytics, and as I understand it, EU cookie law says they have to advise visitors that the site is using cookies and offer them the opportunity to opt out. I've been using this script to do that. It also adds a privacy tab to the site, which allows visitors to change their preferences at any time - also a requirement, I believe. The client wants the tab removed, because "she's been told" she doesn't need it.
So, first question (definitely B&L): is it necessary to provide an option to change settings or not?
Second question (not really B&L): can anybody suggest an alternative script or method which would keep the client happy? She probably wouldn't object (too much) to a simple link in the footer, but there's no provision for that with this script. (Writing my own really isn't an option. )
