The new regulations require that users or subscribers of the website consent to the placement of cookies on their device.
PixCookiesRestrict module and system plugin will prevent cookies from being placed on a web device until the user has actively agreed to accept them.
After making just a few settings, publish the PixCookiesRestrict module on every page. You have now disabled cookies from being placed on a visitors web device. Once the visitor has agreed to accept cookies from your website they will no longer see this restrict cookies module and the site will function as intended. If they do not agree to accept cookies the the site will not be able to set standard Joomla! cookies on their device. The visitor will not be able to login or use any commenting functions.
What does PixCookiesRestrict do?
We do not guarantee the prevention and/or removal of all third party cookies, for example cookies placed there by Facebook. However, in the case of Google Analytics, we have developed the plugin, PixAnalytics, to compliment PixCookiesRestrict which will prevent Googles tracking until the user has agreed to accept cookies.
We have added a new layout function to the module so you can display a "block cookies" module, or an "unblock cookies" module or a module that does both, "block and unblock cookies", giving you freedom to adapt these functions to the design of your site.
Important: After installation, enable the System PixCookiesRestrict plugin AND set it to the last position in the ordering.
With Registration you also have access to the free PixSearch module.
