Europe’s top court says active consent is needed for tracking cookies…

Europe’s top court says active consent is needed for tracking cookies, any chance Virgin Media will now amend their dubious consent practices where:

  • Cookie policy cannot be read without first accept Cookie policy
  • Advertising cookies are preselected

    0) select Cookie policy link goes to 1
    1) select Let me open cookie jar and change my settings goes to 2
    2) Advertising cookies is preselected

As long as you meet the transparency requirement of GDPR all maybe well but I have to say the function name “sessions” suggests a lack of persistence.

Well you're required to allow session cookies in order to use websites, i mean you can opt out of them but it means logins won't work so you'll basically have to agree to those, all that will happen is tracking cookies being replaced with something else to identify your machine, likely a quick ping to a server with relevant data or google analytics code getting the server to store data inside the session and ping it off at set intervals, there are ways around this and i have no doubt google and the like are already looking in to it, cookies were just the easiest method
