Cookie Law for MyBB 1.8?
I am reading everywhere, some webmasters say that we should just put the warning, others who must also proactively block cookies, but even the big sites aren't doing this.
As usual in other countries the law is clear and without problems, in Italy the government always writes impossible laws (impossible to interpret) and allow some people to earn above, with the terror of fines if you are not in good standing..
- *do* accept cookies and get the best representation ever
- *don't* accept cookies and get a simple, low-quality version
However now they all make it: "We are forced to tell you about our cookies, so we do. Accept it or get nothing at all!"
That's what we get when governments interfere. They pretend to think about our best interests, but they have no idea of the effect of their meddling.
It doesn't block cookies of third party. The Italian law talks about block cookies profiling (?): banner ads (affiliations), Adsense, Social buttons etc and need a script to don't set these cookies until a visitor consents (preventing cookies?).
Mybb cookies aren't profiling, only to do login..it's a mess here I found this: "Cookies statistics issued by the owner of the site or who do not draw the visitor's IP address (eg Google Analytics with Anonymize IP) are excluded from the legislation.
The major problems with this law are related to the use of so-called third-party cookies. The Authority for the Protection of Personal Data has specified in the order that the publisher must release the information and ask for consent even with regard to third-party cookies.
Basically it refers to publishers that use one of the many circuits of advertising (such as Google Adsense platform) available to give financial support to the activities of their websites or their blogs. Well, these publishers, until they haven't obtained the consent from the user, can't load tags advertising. Therefore, banner ads can't be displayed because they rely cookies profiling and for this reason it is necessary to obtain the consent of users to whom it will be up to grant permission or not to use this tool.
On many websites, now the vast majority of them, there are the so-called 'Social Buttons'. They allow you to share one of the content of the website in question also on one of the profiles created by users on one or more social networks. Well, the decision of the Authority for the Protection of Personal Data requires those who make use of these buttons block the loading of these objects, to show an informative short and require the consent of the visitor."
In short, I don't have to load cookies just a guest arrives on my site if user consents to cookies then all unlocked.
And then that plugin refresh the page and returns to index of the forum Instead plugin enable cookies and no refresh the page.
