That's because of the European Union's new Cookie Law.  Nothing to be concerned about.

It's because the implementation of the law is not uniform.  Again, ignoring it the best way to handle the message (just one more click).

Are the servers located in the same place, country, or organization?

Why?: "The location of your hosting is irrelevant, but the location of your organisation is not. Your organisation must fall within the legal jurisdiction of the EU. Each member state has their own laws, which are based on the same EU directive, but may differ slightly".

For most small/medium organisations, being located in the EU will mean you must comply.

The EU has relented a bit and the interpretation varies from country to country..

Austria, Greece and Poland require explicit consent after being informed of the reasoning and uses. The UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain use the implied consent giving the user the option of opting out also after given the reasoning and uses of cookies and a clear opt out policy.  Either way does set a non-intrusive cookie to remember the users choice.  There are many classes of cookies going from non-intrusive to very intrusive. The UK passed the law in May 2011 with a 1 year grace period.

The message you displayed does NOT comply since it doesn't show the reasoning and uses and either an opt-in or opt-out option.
