Hello Michael!
First of all my congratulations for your extension, one of the best (if not the best) I tried.
I'm still trying the extesion and I'm struggling with deleting third party cookies: more into details, I'm using statcounter cookies for analytics purposes.

My statcounter script is in a custom module and I created the new group "Cookies" and assigned to this module.
When I click on "remove cookies" in the module, all the joomla cookies are deleted and this is ok, but statcounter cookies remain in the pc: is there a way to delete these cookies too?

Thank you very much!

Daniele

It can be done with your browser.

In Chrome, press the F12 key (or go to the Chrome menu and choose "More Tools" > "Developer Tools". Go to the "Application" tab. On the left, find "Cookies" and expand it. You should find a list of domains supplying cookies for the page/site. Click each domain and you have access to the stored cookies. They can be deleted from there.

In Firefox, the process is similar. F12 or Menu > "Web Developer" > "Storage Inspector". Then it's the same - open cookies, view the domains, delete the cookies.

Safari is similar, but I don't have a mac fired up right now, So is IE 11+, but I don't have any of my virtual machines running to pull that exact process.

I put links to each of the processes on gdpr.richeyweb.com/clearing-cookies

Thank you for your fast reply, yes I know that it can be done manually through the browser, I was thinking about an automatic (maybe custom, based on the cooky name) action to delete third party cookies, when the user click on "remove cookies", but I just noticed that it is written in the popup, that "third party cookies will no longer communicate to the parent sites, but cannot be removed by this website.."

Yeah, I wish it could, but the Same Origin policy restricts it. They, literally, cooked that restriction directly into all browsers for security. Domain A cannot interact with cookies set by Domain B, which is why I built my extension to operate the way it does. I can't affect them after they're set, so I provide a mechanism to prevent them from being set in the first place (the user group/access level)
