        Hello, everybody. From Europe I suppose..
        I noticed, that “allowing cookies” has envolved recently. On some websites, I noticed, that even if your preferences are set to “not accept” or “disable” cookies, developpers found new way how to sneak into your PC ๐Ÿ™‚

        Now they use “legitimate interest” setting, that is ON by default. Because if you visit the web deliberetly, you have the interest, dont you.

        Legal information here.


        …but essentially it means that if you use cookies on your website, you need your usersโ€™ consent. Therefore, you cannot afterwards claim a legitimate interest in processing (or letting third parties process) the data without consent.

        it seems like there is always a way, how to mine ones personal data and usage.
