In It’s All About the Cookies, Part 1 we talked about what the EU Privacy Directive is and what it means for our publishers.
Basically, compliance with the new EU “Cookie Law” comes down to informed consent. This means that you should take steps to let your publishers know what types of cookies you use on your site.
This has raised the question, “What do I need to do to comply with the new cookie law- Do you have any recommended text?”
We also recommend to all of our users that they share our Disclosure Badge on their site.
Available to all Skimlinks publishers, to help you maintain an honest relationship with your users, we’ve created some smart Skimlinks badges that can be placed on your site and will disclose your use of Skimlinks technology in a small info pop-up.
We’ve even woven our referral program into the disclosure badge. This means that if you feature our disclosure badge on your site and someone clicks through and signs up for Skimlinks, you’ll receive 12% of the commissions that we earn from that site for a year! For more information on our referral program, visit our Learning Center.
