"In EU browsing the Internet is a fucking nightmare"
@DeveloperMemes the idea behind the law was good, it was just riddled with mistakes, so websites could easily make the cookie popups confusing to navigate so everyone would click on 'accept all'.
It's not the fault of the EU. It's the fault of corporations. Don't forget that.
@DeveloperMemes on another note, what's with the quality of these memes recently? They've become complete shit!
@xerz @DeveloperMemes only if they don't have a 'reject all' button *somewhere*. It can be at the bottom of the page, behind confusing labels (be on the lookout for 'legitimate interest'), extremely tiny and other stuff.
I believe the EU is now catching some of them on technicalities, but I really just hope they'll end up amending or straight up rewriting the law.
Not like I care a lot since Firefox has added total cookie protection, anyway.
@DeveloperMemes@social.cybre.town there is no part in the GDPR which forces you to prepend a popup with that.
To be honest, this was the reaction of ill-informed companies, who believe putting this popups may save them. Which is not the case.
@nomadbynature @midline @DeveloperMemes it's just another law, if you need it because you are a developer or you manage an agency you have to find the time to read the regulation.
The regulation don't say not to use a functionality, they say the web user has to consent about their personal data to be used and they have to be justified for the purpose of the website.
The marketeers try to trick the website users and put them in the position to always say "yes"
@DeveloperMemes@social.cybre.town companies break law to try to circumvent law protecting data, protecting data bad
stellar logic, but you can't expect better from redditors
@DeveloperMemes yeah, that is patently false, and basically parrots Google's and IAB's propaganda about privacy regulation. Really damn sad to see this kind of tripe coming from this account.
