@Mixtape @stux GDPR is the best we have. Security by default should be the way to go though

@AaronTheIssueGuy @stux ain't gonna happen companies will keep giving data to US companies nonstop rather than hosting their own Cloud system or using alternatives like Nextcloud ect. And the pandemic isn't helping that problem at all

@Mixtape @stux This is more so how these websites implement their compliance with it. All they need is a simple "Accept" or "Decline" prompt but these sorts of websites go overboard for the sake of irritating you into accepting :(

@moongaia @stux Microsoft Authenticator sends data to Adobe before u even tap the accept or OK or whatever button, same goes for Microsoft Teams it sends a unique ID Number to Adobe and others including from participants that may never allowed that to happen

Pretty sure it is a GDPR violation to make it significantly harder to refuse cookies than accepting them, @Mixtape and @stux

@cnx @stux DB Navigator App is a case for the authorities it has an unnecessary amount of third parties marked as necessary but the app still works fine if u block access to like half of them

@cnx @stux

Microsoft violates exactly this:

Processing personal data is generally prohibited, unless it is expressly allowed by law, or the data subject has consented to the processing. While being one of the more well-known legal bases for processing personal data, consent is only one of six bases mentioned in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The others are: contract, legal obligations, vital interests of the data subject, public interest and legitimate interest as stated in Article 6(1) GDPR.

And yes i guess making it hard to see what the heck is goin on i guess may be a violation....

@stux Dang! Sooner or later we'll need an alternative to AlternativeTo, and that shouldn't even be a mouthful for anyone to speak!
