      As per discussion on Dev ML https://markmail.org/message/rcatehtckz6vlvuv 

      The Cookie Law is a piece of privacy legislation that requires websites to get consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on their computer, smartphone or tablet. It was designed to protect online privacy, by making consumers aware of how information about them is collected and used online, and give them a choice to allow it or not. 
      The EU Cookie Legislation began as a directive from the European Union. Some variation on the policy has since been adopted by all countries within the EU.
      The EU Cookie Legislation requires 4 actions from website owners who use cookies:
      1. When someone visits your website, you need to let them know that your site uses cookies. 
      2. You need to provide detailed information regarding how that cookie data will be utilized. 
      3. You need to provide visitors with some means of accepting or refusing the use of cookies in your site. 
      4. If they refuse, you need to ensure that cookies will not be placed on their machine.

      For more information about EU cookie policy, please visit here.
      As this crucial feature is missing in OFBiz E-Commerce application, we should work towards its implementation. There are numerous open-source jQuery plugins available which we can use.
