Dough! Jobs microsite for UK's data watchdog set hundreds of cookies without visitors' consent


why do folks have their browser configured wrong???

"I have just discovered that the Information Commissioner's Office jobs microsite, which talks about the importance of GDPR and Data Privacy, and which is currently advertising the new Director of Regulatory Strategy role, sets approximately 204 advertising and tracking cookies, all without consent.

Does GDPR require people to set their browsers to "ask to accept a cookie"? Why do people insist that they have their browser "automatically accept cookies" when they are trying to force sites to ask? Clearly, sites are not always able to "ask for consent", so why are the browsers set to automatically accept? I have been seeing this setting in all my browsers for over two decades, so people saying they don't know about it is hogwash.
