Why annoying continuous Cookie disclaimer on VM site
« on: August 09, 2013, 22:59:05 pm »
Why is there a continuous cookie disclaimer on the VM site. I click agree then go to another page and it's there again. This is so annoying. Many major sites use cookies without a disclaimer.

Could you give more details? Your OS, Browser and its version?

It is a legal requirement for all web sites in the EU. When you click on "allow" it sets a cookie so the info is not seen again on other pages. If you have cookies turned off or refused in your browser then it will show on all pages.

What major sites in EU do this?

It's OS something, one of those fruit machines.  ;)

So cookie security will be a mystery to most of us, and I don't know if those devices can use cookie management plugins.
