This list contains just what we have found to date, we may have missed some – if so just leave a comment below.
Remember that all of these plugins use css to style them and thus can be restyled to match your own website.
If we were to pick one today we would go with either of the implied consent scripts/plugins, but our research goes on. We will let you know what we decide to go with and will be suggesting to our clients. In the meantime read this post about what else you should be doing to comply.
