OK, when I just use the ga_ cookie the GA cookies are not placed when I don't consent. After checking this one and saving, the three cookies are set. After changing the preferences to no GA, the cookies are not deleted? Also not the ga_ one? Or is the deletion not possible when changing the preferences?
Ah wait. Because we first give consent for the cookies the are placed on the computer. Changing the preferences then might not mean the previously accepted cookies need to be deleted. Right? So deleting cookies after changing the prefs is what I might have expected, but not necessary... Deleting the cookies will work with the 'Delete cookies' button.
Delete cookies deletes cookies from your domain. I can't do anything about 3rd party cookies (from another domain) once they've been set. What my extension does is prevent the resources that use those cookies from loading. So they do disappear from the list when the user de-selects a cookie item from the checkbox list.
Hi Richey, I get that. While testing I was expecting the actual cookie to be deleted after consent was changed from yew to no. But that indeed is not behavior to expect. Although you might argue that would be a good thing for a user. Because he/she changed here mind maybe it would be nice to then also delete the cookies that were allowed earlier.
Changing consent actually only means adding consent for more cookies. When you uncheck a box, the consent might change, but the cookie is still there. Because you gave consent earlier. Right? Of will this actually stop working / tracking the visitor?
This is only in case someone first gives consent and the changes it back to 'not'.
But again, when a user first accepts a cookie and it is set, they have given consent for this, so legally that's no problem. And they can always remove all cookies with this plugin.
