Only 11.8% of the 10,000 sites verified by the researchers follow the rules.
Researchers found that only 11.8% of the 10,000 websites they tested met the minimum requirements established by law.
The most common way to bypass websites bypassing EU laws is implicit consent, which is used by about 32.5% of the websites studied. This option assumes that if the user did not respond to the pop-up window, he gave his consent. On other sites, it’s also more difficult to refuse tracking than to accept it: the user has to perform many actions to find an opportunity to prohibit tracking.
