5. I'm not from Belgium. Is there any other authorization required for my country?

CCP is a Belgian service provider, and focuses its website and online portal mainly to Belgian nationals.

Obtain a complete and accurate list of the European countries, the implementation status of the cookie legislation and the (possible) implementation method is not evident.
Yet CCP aims to pursue a correct implementation method for each Member State, as far as technically and materially possible.
