We monitor the legislation EU lawmakers implemented in May of 2011.
Its main focus is more at sites which track customer movement after they leave the site they are on. Then they serve up ads related to what the cookies are reporting back. That isn't something MemberGate does in any manner.
This article has a paragraph which explains where MemberGate falls: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/05/25/cookies_directive_partial_notification/
The relevant portion is:
"The rules do not require websites to obtain consent from the user in the case of cookies that directly relate to the provision of a service explicitly requested by the user (e.g. cookies to remember language preferences or the content of shopping baskets on e-commerce websites)."
That is exactly the only capacity Membergate uses them. They are not for targeted ad campaigns or for marketing in any way what so ever.
