DON'T CALL IT COOKIES
Protecting children’s privacy online by demanding websites stop using the word ‘cookies’.
What child says no to a cookie? The way that websites hide data-collection behind the word ‘cookies’ had been bugging us for a while. Sure adults might understand what they are & the value of their personal data, but can children really make an informed choice when asked if they want to accept cookies?
So we took action, creating an animated film asking businesses to stop using the word ‘cookies’ on their websites, building a downloadable plugin that automatically changed the word and launching a petition to ask the government to put a stop to this misleading terminology.
