GDPR, DoNotTrack by default

(David) #1

Hello everyone,

The details of the GDPR are not yet confirmed apparently, but the GDPR could imply the activation of the default DoNotTrack parameter on all browsers. Yes, you read well, by default, unless the user unchecks this option …

If this proves to be the case, we will be able to forget our analysis tools and find our logs, as in 1997 …

Who has info about this?

I haven’t read that much about GDPR yet, but I am not sure if it will have any influence on DNT. Do you have any (official) sources for this?

What’s definitely important is that you allow users:

  • The possibility for them to view the data you collected on them
  • The possibility to rectify some data concerning them
  • The possibility to delete their data when they request about it

But at least in my country (Austria) this is already active for some years.

Thanks Lukas :wink: All this is very understandable.
