Incase you didn’t know Europe introduced a new data protection law (GDPR) which has lots of parts but a lot of which focuses on website personal data and how you are tracked etc.
I am finding that before the the law came in i visited websites and i probably was tracked without explicit concent as i probably ticked some ‘continue’ button on the cookie bar slide up panel to get rid of it.
Now I am finding that a lot of websites i go to have a massive great panel rabbiting on about GDPR and disabling this and that and do i want to disable cookies etc.
In theory the ‘disable’ cookies button should do just that but most i’ve tried just give you an explanation of how to disable cookies on your computer. Which i don’t want to do.
So it’s got to the point that i now just click ‘accept’ on pretty much anything so i can actually view the site.
Previously i would have been tracked without my knowledge, now i am actively giving concent as i just can’t be bothered to think about every website i visit and having to do ‘extra’ work. (perhaps i am just lazy).
anyone else finding this?
