There was a message waiting for me from Google when I came to my blog this morning:
'European Union laws require
you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your
blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.
As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of
certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and
AdSense cookies. You are responsible for confirming that this notice actually works for your
blog and that it is displayed.'
Nice use of the phrase 'as a courtesy', don't you think? Thanks, Google.
