Imagine a world where setting a "Do Not Track" setting in your browser would be a (legally) effective way to opt out of tracking and you would never have to see those "Cookie settings" / "We value your privacy" layers anymore, because you've already made your choice.

@dkellner I asked the Norwegian data protection agency about this some time ago, they promised to get back to me on it, but never did. Probably time to nag them about it again.

IANAL but I can not for the life of me see why this should not be the case.


Legally effective doesn't mean effective.

Copying data leaves no evidence and a Law whose violations cannot be proved in a trial are just designed to calm down people with illusionary promises.
