A lot of our sites only use Cookies for storing login information, and this requires that the user ticks a box to remember their login details.

However, I have also suggested to clients that they put a line in their T&Cs / Privacy Statement that just expands on this a little bit to cover their backs.

Some 'nervous' clients have opted to put the following in brackets after the Remember Me text.

(this will store your login details in a cookie on your computer)

The biggest grey area for me is actually Google Analytics (other analytics packages are available). My concern here is does the user now need to opt in to allowing analytic information to be captured? Does the responsibility of this lie with Google or with the owner of the website?

I use mainly sessions but then sessions are regarded as cookies so im told/read. but then its mainly more for internal website stuff rather then third party.

I am a bit annoyed as going to have to put in extra code to then allow for the end user to accept cookies or not (understandable for google analytics etc - but arnt google analytics useful in helping the flow of the advancement of the internet - know what users use etc helps with technologies being developed further etc).
