What is the purpose of a cookie consent form?
Personally, I have never really been a big fan of these as i find them to be a pain in the ass and in your face - Invasive would be the word.
However, as i have noticed this more and more lately with new websites and even older websites adopting it.
I did ponder the reasons why people would opt to do it this way rather than just providing both pages on their sites with links to them clear to be seen somewhere on the site.
However, it would appear that i have been slightly mixed up with this and have oly just discovered that this is actually a cookie consent form" that i have been saying.
Yet, there are so many new sites using these nowadays.
Why would this be then if its not mandatory? Are they plnning on making it mandatory soon and sites are just staying a step ahead of the game (although some sites been usin them for years).
So what is their purpose and point?
