And the first one I contacted replied today to tell me it's fixed now 😁 They ended up removing Google Analytics all together.
You should try this too! 😄
Basically what I write is:
1. You're not complying with GDPR by not letting your user opt out of analytics (you need consent first!)
2. Will you please consider fixing this?
3. Fixing this should also be in your interest, since *anyone* can send a complaint to your DPA.
Maybe next time I'll add a note about cookieless alternatives, such as Plausible :)
@sigsegv these websites annoy me so much. It's great you had such an immediate & positive response. I'm going to try this now.
I gather this wouldn't work with non-European websites/companies?
