You might want to read this: http://www.theeucookielaw.com/   As far as I can tell, the only cookies set for your site are the Google tracking cookies... which are of course the kind of cookies they don't want you to use.  One of the solutions is simply to remove Google tracking code and then there is nothing to tell anyone about.
