 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review

 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 Under new EU law if a cookie is non-essential it has to be blocked so that
 a user can opt-in. But if it is essential its ok as long as it's use is
 detailed on the site. This problem is that buddypress sets this cookie on
 every page, not only where it is used. If e.g. the activity component is
 only shown for logged in users, then this cookie is non-essential for not
 logged in users and should not be set.

 The attached patches will set the cookie only when it is used and thus
 only when it is essential.

 This is the information about cookies under EU law.
