Social cookies and user group

1 year 2 months ago #3828 by Styxeldiablo
Hello there,

So to get better insight on the cookies i use on my site i downloaded cookie manager for firefox.
When i go to my site the original cookies are blocked like they should using this plugin, i'm also using a Facebook plugin (My Facebook Page) and these cookies aren't blocked. I red that 3rd party cookies can be worked around by creating a new user group so that's what i did.
I made the FB module visible for only the group that i've chosen in de eu-privacy-directive plugin under the tab advanced. Now when i go to my site the FB module doesn't show at all... when i accept or decline cookies makes no difference.
I noticed that the cookies only get set when i click on the FB module and a pop up screen comes up, is it my responsibillity to do something about these cookies or is facebook responsible?
Maybe there is some code i can put in a file which will block the FB cookie script untill someone accepted the cookies? And where can i find the code and where to put it?

When i went to this site and declined cookies i could see in the cookie manager that 2 cookies still were active:

lidc --> cookie
_ir --> cookie
