The ICC and the ICO seem to differ somewhat even though the ICO link to the ICC document.
Understand that the ICC is NOT the ICO and therefore what they declare in the guide document (linked by Cathal) isn't something you should follow to the full extent.
I have been back through the ICO guide and it seems to differ somewhat from what the ICC guide has interpreted.
From what I can gather, from the official ICO guide, is that it is only 'Category 1 - strictly necessary' cookies that do not require user consent.
Everything else requires consent. Even if you add the relevant text into your T&Cs the ICO say it is not enough. Here is the exact paragraph from the guide (page 17):
When do you think we will hear more from DNN devs in terms of what might be planned here?
Also, in the meantime, is there anything that developers can do to adjust this without really looking into modifying the core of DNN and risk it being over-written down the line in an update.
Thanks for taking time to read this.
