Dental Website Cookie Law
DOES YOUR COOKIE LAW PROTECT YOU?
There are many online cookie facilities and tracking solutions available on the internet but it is important to ensure they comply with GDPR. Information about data that is recorded and the purpose of cookies need to be clearly specified on your website. All consents must be recorded as evidence that consent has been given and for those users who ignore the cookie law you want to make sure you are still protected.
THE PREMIUM COOKIE PLAN
The new Premium Cookie law plan design4dentists are offering dental practice websites include solutions that conform with General Data Protection Regulations. Using a cloud based system, the features work efficiently and the premium cookie plan is configured to function across multiple web browsers and supports W3C’s accessibility standards WCAG 2.0 and WAI-ARIA.

• Automated Cookie Scan & Customised Declaration
Once a month an automated audit will scan your website for cookies and generate a cookie declaration with descriptions on every cookie found on your website. The report is then available and published in full as a subpage on your website. The declaration also shows the user’s current consent state and offers the statutory option of changing or withdrawing a consent.
• Branded Cookie Banner
With the Premium Cookie Law plan your banner or pop up message can be adapted and branded to appear bespoke to your website. Visitors are then presented with a choice of which cookies to opt-in or out of. The system will then remember the user’s choice for 12 months after which the banner will automatically pop up to renew the user’s consent.
• Control & Configuration
The Premium Cookie Law plan provides full support of the required prior consent so that only strictly necessary cookies are set before the user consents. The system can also be configured to comply with current regulations in all EU Member States so if you operate websites in multiple countries, you can set up a configuration for each country.
• Cookie Repository
The system scans your website to identify cookies from a global repository and then describes them to your visitors. The descriptions can be adapted if necessary.
• Multiple Domain Consent
Whether you operate multiple websites from different domains or your website operates from several sub-domains, the premium cookie law plan can ask users for a consent that covers all your domains. Visitors will then just be asked once for consent if they visit your other websites.
• Language Detection
As well as being able to customise dialog into different languages, the system also enables automatic language detection for the user to read in their preferred language.
• Geo Location Targeting
Consents can even be targeted to visitors located in specific countries and determine whether the consent banner needs to be displayed or not.
• Email Reporting
Each month the Premium Cookie Law plan can provide visitor statistics about their choices when visiting your website. The report can be sent to one or more recipient email addresses.
• Encrypted Security
All cookie consents are collected through a secured SSL-connection and stored as strongly encrypted keys.
WHAT’S THE PRICE?
The Premium Cookie Plan is £20 + VAT per month and can be implemented onto your website as soon as a standing order has been set-up and the first payment is received.

WHAT IS THE DEADLINE DATE?
GDPR will come into effect from 25th May 2018 and your website may require other updates in order to comply. It would be advisable to act sooner rather than later to protect your website and business from any hefty fines. Here are the other considerations you will need to ensure your website is updated with:
• Secure & Non-Secure Hosting
• Online Enquiry Forms
• Cookie Laws
• Privacy Policies & Data Protection
