I have been investigating notifications about the use of cookies and a question has come up:

Why 99.9% of websites do not report correctly about the use of cookies and nothing happens?

With "correctly" I mean the use of notifications where you can deny and customize cookies.

I have entered 20 of the top 1,000 websites (newspapers, online stores, etc) and only 1 does it correctly.

I have investigated this because I was thinking about trying to correctly inform the use of cookies on my website, and I have decided to see if others do it, and this other question has come up:

Should I use eg Quantcast to have a perfect cookie usage notification but lose 15% of Google Adsense revenue?

To make the subject a little clearer, I would like to add that in the cookie policy I explain each of the types of cookies, their reasons, how to eliminate them and all that is necessary. I'm just talking about notification about its use.

Sorry for my bad English and thanks.

    Where are you finding the standards of what constitutes "correctly" notifying users about cookies? Is it in a law or regulation? If so, what law or regulation? – David Siegel Feb 7 at 23:18
  • Yes, it is the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD) approved by the European Parliament, where it is detailed that cookies with personal data (such as advertising or analytics) must be used after receiving the user's prior consent. – Brahim Khallota Feb 8 at 16:06
  • Detailed information about obtaining consent can be found in providing guidance on obtaining consent for cookies. In short, Article 5(3) of the ePrivacy directive specifies that consent is required. The GDPR defines the way consent is obtained (because of Art. 94(2) GDPR). – wimh Feb 8 at 18:33
