    Question Do you request permission to set cookies?

    Different jurisdictions have different laws regarding the use of cookies. For example, within the United States there are no federal laws regulating the use of cookies. A couple states have laws. For example, California requires businesses to disclose that cookies are used, and the data is collected by cookies and their purposes, but does not require consent for their use.

    On the other end of the spectrum, EUís ePrivacy Directive requires websites to get consent from users before storing, using, or retrieving their personal information. Itís called the EU cookie law because it explicitly includes internet cookies within the scope of personal information.

    For this week's poll I ask if you store cookies for visitors to your site, and whether or not you obtain permission before storing cookies.

    In addition to voting in the poll, I invite you to share your philosophy regarding the use of cookies, and whether you have different philosophies based on the type of cookie or location of visitors to your site.

    I use only essential cookies. In the past, whenever I used cookies tied to personal information, I requested permission. Better safe than sorry.

    However, I ensured that the permission request didn't take up the entire screen as soon as the user arrived on the website, preventing them from seeing if I had the information they came for and making the UX go out the window.

    These pop-up windows are so annoying that after so many years I don’t even want to use them (even if they suddenly became useful)

    No, I've personally never really used cookies.
