I've never heard a peep from anyone about the site I admin which still doesn't have one of those cookie-naggers. Hopefully, when the UK leaves the EU, the one good thing that might come out of it will be getting rid of that silly legislation.

It would have been better if more had been required.

"As you browse this site, a record of everywhere you click is sent to the following companies: Google, Facebook, MysteryAdNetwork. These companies use this information to sell targetted advertising. We use the data to inform improvements to the site."

If you're getting this kind of idiotic legislation in return, the net result does not appear positive.

Don't get me wrong: the net result is definitely not positive as far as I'm concerned!
