This is not going to go down well when people realise that many European government health webistes have cookie tracking embedded.
Of all the 28 EU member states, only Spanish, German and Dutch government websites were tracker-free.


the Open Rights Group told the BBC.
"This kind of practice is in our view unlawful, both on the grounds of needing explicit consent, and on the grounds that it is impossible to know where the information about you ends up, once it is placed into advertising bidding systems."
