European online activists target ′cookie banner terror′
The Austria-based NOYB or “None of Your Business” group on Monday said it was lodging draft complaints against hundreds of websites for their use of pop-up banners.
NOYB says many users’ on-screen choices do not comply with EU privacy laws, making the internet “a frustrating experience for users all over Europe.”
NOYB said the pop-ups fail to give the user a simple “yes or no” option for permitting their data to be collected, instead providing only a very complex way to refuse to allow the site to track the user’s activity.
