Hi Martin, If this list could be put as a page on the main Kentico site with some text aimed at users as well that would be great. That way we can link to it from our clients sites with something like "To see more information on Kentico's use of cookies please visit http://www.kentico.com/how-we-use-cookies.aspx"
