How to comply with Spanish cookies legislation

 law cookies españa

A few days ago the first fines have fallen to two Spanish websites for violating the legal rules on cookies . The fines have been of 3,000 and 500 euros respectively, but could have amounted to the not insignificant figure of 30,000 euros .

According to the sentence one of the sites, ] created with WordPress (although it confuses with, it used JetPack cookies ( _qca ), SlimStat (from the statistics module) and Quancast ( mc ]).

Of all this, some plugin warns us like Cookilian that we already saw in the article of how to comply with the cookie legislation in WordPress and it would not hurt install it and check the cookies that are on your site and create a page that adequately reports them, mostly to not get you upset.

What are the implications of these first two sentences? I personally think that it sends very bad messages …

The first thing is that, with all the big companies, and all of the IBEX, ignoring the flagrant legislation of cookies, that the Data Protection Agency breastfeed with two small companies I do not know if qualify it as a way to get noticed by setting an example against the little ones who can not or know how to defend themselves well, or as a warning to sailors to scare, again, the little ones.

Meanwhile, what is achieved is that every small business that tries to prosper on the Internet end up closing or moving your business to another country where they do not get so great with something that should be corrected with a software solution, by the hand of Microsoft, Google or Apple, then with a line code could perfectly block cookies unless expressly approved and for all, in their browsers.

But no, here we are more asshole and stupendous than anyone and we are dedicated to fuck the Easter to our SMEs to put obstacles in the way of entrepreneurs, to prevent electronic commerce from emerging and being able to give employment.

It is true that the laws are to comply with them but also administrations have the responsibility and the duty to make life easier for their managers, finding the best solution to the problems that arise, and something that could be arranged so easily by talking to the big software companies, instead is attacked the small webs that subsist with scarce penalties, but much easier to penalize with fines that can not be escaped due to lack of legal cabinets that make the processes "sleep" or even win them.

What they get is that something that should be good: guarantee the Internet user's right to privacy, end up being a brake on that same freedom, not to mention the flowering of new opportunities on the web.

So you know, if you're not a big untouchable multinational, you better prepare your website to comply with the cookie legislation. Do not get pimp because you see that the most important newspapers and portals do not comply, they will not touch them, but you do.
