If you put in an "I agree" button about your cookie use, that intelligible and accessible text is in the link named "read more". If you don't handle personal data as your main gig there's no need to freak out.

The EU probably didn't write a 119 page document if they simply could have said what you wrote.

As a side note, from a marketing standpoint, if a potential of 6 billion people can see the page but they have to click a permission button, that hurts sales. It can have a significant effect.

Let's make 5G safe by installing zirconium ceramic bricks to the cell masts. It will save the providers billions of dollars quickly by reducing interference.

Can you ask yourself "Why do I love discovering how my protons can experience Loving Kindness?"

Significant effect, probably, but not as significant as if they shut you down for non compliance.

Thanks, Jay. Cookies are a necessity for our affiliates.

We can probably close this discussion if you'd like because I'm not going to take any risks at this point other than to limit our potential market by maybe 200 million adults.

I'll watch the carnage from the cheap seats.

119 pages is nothing in the EU chuckle.gif They can't say anything simply because they'd all be out of a job. Twitter has had that cookie acceptance button for a long time, it's not unusual at all to have that on your site anymore.

Thinking outside the box,
Instead of writing "I agree" on the cookie acceptance button, have it read something like
"It's a nice day" or "I like chocolate milkshakes".
That way customers are lulled into believing that they have consented to an idea they can support.
You could also write "I deplore fascism".
That would send a message to the fanatics of the E.U. that are tracking by proxy.

Well we do have to give them credit for being clear about the $20 million Euros. Wouldn't you have loved to have been there for that discussion? "One millllyun dollars!" (looks around the room furtively at the expressions on everyone's faces.)

This type of thing is how the EU justifies their existence. They fancy themselves regulators, but concentrate on things that need no regulation. Unelected bureaucrats are always happiest when enforcing pointless laws.

You are so very correct.
Governments' primary function is to provide protection for it's citizens and maintain those citizen's wellbeing.
The EU provides neither.

Would you happen to know if there is a way to copy and paste the IP's from a country? Hostgator says I can paste them inside the IP blocker in the the cpanel to ban them.
