Cookie annoyances

Here’s a thought. Websites that throw up a cookie popup demanding you deselect, or at least look at several categories and then save those settings ought to have some feedback mechanism (I’m thinking email to the CEO…) and a button marked ‘leaving website – do not agree with infernal use of cookies’ that triggers the email.

Of course one could assume that their marketing team would look to analytics to determine how many people see the cookie notice and never go any further. But where that relies on Google Analytics rather than good old logfile analysis they would see no results. Perhaps they do, and see that everything is apparently roses, having completely missed the point!!
