Following the UK’s exit from the EU, work has begun to design data protection rules that will appear to be somewhat different from the GDPR law applicable to the EU from 2018 onwards. Among other things, the UK is said to be trying to find another solution to cookie claims (cookies) tied to the EU after the introduction of GDPR.
The UK hopes that a new cookie request procedure will reduce the number of annoying cookie banners that visitors have to click when visiting a site for the first time. CNBC writes about how the UK thinks cookie claims might work in the UK as an alternative to GDPR:
The government says the UK is proposing to switch to a framework that users can opt out of rather than choosing whether to choose a cookie collection, which is far less likely to be one of the “disgusting” boxes that appear online.
Many viewers are concerned that the UK could become more confusing on the Internet about cookie requests before a different practice than the EU. This is because websites should have different options for cookie requests depending on where the visitor is supposed to be coming from.

The so-called “cookies” have been significantly reduced since the EU GDPR law came into force earlier this year. The GDPR Act came into force on May 25, and since then there are 22 percent fewer third-party cookies that store information about users who visit websites online. Researchers at the University of Oxford studied the number of cookies before and after GDPR and began applying them to 200 sites in seven European countries: Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, the United Kingdom and Spain. It should be noted that this survey is about cookies from third -party services, which are often used to monitor how users move online and what sites they visit.
Users must actively agree to store information about themselves
The European Court of Justice today ruled that cookie banners or pre-filled cookie forms do not meet the requirements of the European Union on how to handle the storage of cookies. The background to all this is that the so-called “cookies” are stored in the user’s computer, so the German court asked the European Court to determine whether a lottery site in Germany handled the cookies correctly. Already stored on the system. According to a ruling by the European Court of Justice, users must actively agree to sites that store cookies on their computers before this can happen. Cookies or “cookies” are small files containing data about users who visit a particular site. These are used, among other things, to direct ads towards the user, remembering settings and other applications you may have, such as from the last visit to the user’s site.
A user must refuse to receive cookies
The EU has published some clear guidelines on how web owners can use what is called cookies on our sites. Among other things, it is now clear that so-called “cookie walls” are prohibited. This means that websites do not “force” visitors to register cookies on their computer in order to access the content on the service. This means that websites have a yes and no alternative to cookies, so users can clearly state that they do not want to register cookies on their computer. Furthermore, the updated guidelines make it clear that passive approval of cookies is not permitted. For example, a website may not indicate that a visitor only accepts cookies, for example, scrolling or clicking on something in the current service. Below is an image with sections of the current two sections of the European Data Protection Board’s updated cookie guidelines.
Browser Vivaldi now launches a new feature called “Cookie Cramper”, which automatically disappears any popups that may appear on web pages. These so-called cookie pop-ups have become more or less mandatory since the EU introduced its GDPR legislation a few years ago. These usually only appear when you visit a website but are very annoying. Cookie Krambler works on the latest version of Vivaldi for desktop or Android, but must be implemented under browser settings. If you choose to skip the website settings for cookies, you should note that some websites may stop working.
