Re: BULLSHIT! [was:: CNIL? Yeah, follow your own rules, dumbasses!]
@ Pierre - it would be useful if you actually visited the link given.
1. Can you please define "continue to browse"? The message, which is not a bad translation from French but is given IN ENGLISH exactly as written, implies that by using the CNIL website, you are giving consent to third party services. It is better than some in that you can personalise the cookies, but does it work? I set DailyMotion to Deny then followed a link from CNIL to a DailyMotion video (tutoriel pour les achats en ligne) and ten session cookies were set by DailyMotion, plus an LSO (persistent Flash cookie) from static1.dmcdn.net containing video player settings and a session ID. So much for CNIL's Deny option.
2. You will notice that the message and personalisation options go away when you navigate around the site. This is because CNIL creates session cookies in the form of _pk_id.#.#### and _pk_ses.#.#### (where # is a number), these seem to grow as you visit the site, switch languages, etc. I have three pairs at the moment. There is also a cookie called "tartaucitron" (ho ho) which records the so-called preferences for DailyMotion and YouTube.
3. Yes, they are session based, but it seems that there is too much going on to be anything other than CNIL tracking your behaviour on the site.
Maybe if you took as long looking at the site as writing your reply, you might have noticed this.
