The new EU Cookie law is now in effect.
Other organisations like Bradford chamber of commerce are adding a pop up box when you visit their sites in an attempt to comply with the new EU cookie law, some of these boxes pester you until you tick them.
However, before deciding what to do watch this video from the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) and pay attention at 3 minutes 10 seconds in to the video where he says “It’s difficult to imagine that non-compliance with the cookies rule is ever going to trigger a situation in which we would be able to issue a monetary penalty”. Many people think that you won’t need a pop up box to comply with the new EU cookie law. At least as the law stands in July 2012 (see M&S Tesco and Comet above).

Comply with the law but don’t lose your hair worrying, this law is not as big a nightmare as first expected.

So at the moment, that’s what I’m doing too.
