Blogger Cookies notification

Google Blogspot users frequently get this automated Cookies notification on their blogs for EU visitors.
The cookie message appears at the top of your blog.

Though the notification is annoying but here is why it is important:
European laws require that digital publishers give visitors to their sites and apps information about their use of cookies and other forms of local storage. In many cases these laws also require that consent be obtained.

It is a publisher's responsibility to ensure that the Notification bar is shown on his blog and it should not be disabled in any case using CSS or JavaScript unless the publisher is already displaying a custom bar notifying users about the use of cookies on his site.

all blogspot blogs using the default sub-domains ( country-code Top Level Domain or ccTLD) or custom domains (be it  .com, .net, .org etc.) will automatically show the following sticky Notice at the top of the page when a user visits that blog from a browser with an European IP:
