Cookiewarning is a small script designed to display a warning to users about the use of cookies on a site in order to comply with the EU privacy directive (see https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-pecr/cookies-and-similar-technologies/ ).

To use:
Please a link to the javascript file in the body of your HTML document as per the example test files (i.e. <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="js/cookiewarning.js"></script> ) 

Versions:
Currently there are four versions of the javascript file, 
version 1 (cookiewarning.js) darkens the page and superimposes a white box displaying the warning.
Version 2 (cookiewarning2.js) inserts a red box with white text at the top of the users screen. 
Version 3 (cookiewarning3.js) should be inserted in the <head> section of a page (as opposed to the <Body> section as version 1 and 2 are) and displays the warning in a pop-up box.
Version 4 (cookiewarning4.js) inserts a white header at the top of the page.

All four versions permit the developer to set a flag which, if the users doesn't allow cookies, either sets a "do not track" cookie or redirects the user to a third party site (aka google.com).

I belive all are compatible with the EU directive, however I'm not a lawyer.
