On 26th of May 2012 the new law about cookies using came into force in UK. According to it now it's forbidden to keep users cookies without their consent. Please read more here:
ViArt Shop doesn't rely on cookies very much so it's quite easy to make your shop legally compliant. In the future ViArt version you will not need to edit anything, there will be an option to turn off cookies.
As for older ViArt versions please find below the list of files you may change to prevent any problems with cookies saving.
Comment or remove the following line which saves user profile data of unregistered customers for future using in this form:
setcookie("cookie_order_info", $cookie_order_info, va_timestamp() + 3600 * 24 * 366);
Comment or remove the following lines which save username and email address of unregistered customers for future using in this form:
setcookie("cookie_forum_nick", $r->get_value("user_name"), va_timestamp() + 3600 * 24 * 366);
setcookie("cookie_forum_email", $r->get_value("user_email"), va_timestamp() + 3600 * 24 * 366);
Comment or remove the following lines which save user login and password information in case user selects an option 'Remember me':
setcookie("cookie_user_login", $login, va_timestamp() + 3600 * 24 * 366);
setcookie("cookie_user_password", $password, va_timestamp() + 3600 * 24 * 366);
This encoded file contains some cookies saving as well but after carefully studying the new regulations we don't think it's against the law. Just for your information they save:
- affiliate code (user who sends affiliate links should enable this parameter in ViArt admin to make it possible to use affiliate system)
- 'Friends Visits' code (a feature in Coupons that allows to send a link to the site with friendly code parameter to enable special discount for friend or for the sender)
- special visit parameter (saves information about current users session)

Understand problems and solve them immediately.

God bless you
