What Still Needs to be Done?
So to draw this back to GDPR, what is the point of this? Does this make the site GDPR compliant? It does make the site GDPR compliant, but it's BS, isn't it? But this is not what GDPR wants, surely, to make things just confusing on people. Because you imagine, okay, your average person I don't think he really even knows what a cookie is. Sure. And do they really know what _____ is? I don't know, absolutely. So what you've got on the one hand is you've got the lawyers saying we need to do this, and you've got the marketing department saying we need to do this. Remember I talked about it being a maturing thing, and in a years' time things will be different? Stuff like this will mature. Where do you think is the right middle ground here that respects the sentiments and the objectives of GDPR, but represents it in a way which is consumable by humans. Where you've got an interface here that says, you know, we're listing the types of cookies by what they do, and you can turn them on and you can turn them off in a really clear transparent manner. Yeah, which would make more sense. Yeah. So I think this is version 1. Remember, we're both old enough to use some really bad version 1 software. Version 2 will be better. Maybe, and I know you sort of said this is perhaps not the right word, when I said transition, and we said, well, actually it really applies from the 25th of May, but maybe this is the sort of thing which over time has to find a more comfortable equilibrium from where it is now. And what will happen is someone will complain about this probably, and the regulator will look at it, or we'll get some better guidance from the Article 29 Working Party, and over time we'll come to a nice flattening where everyone has got a good idea of what's respecting people's rights, but also allows, for instance, newspaper sites to make some money. We hope you enjoyed this course.
