        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.

        Luckilly:

        …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.
