The EU forces you to inform us when cookies are stored. Apparently curve fever uses an absolute shit ton of external services that are focused on aggregating data for the purpose of tracking and advertisement. I do not mind ads in general, obviously there needs to be some way of generating revenue. However the absurd number of companies that are apparently involved and the way this popup was designed makes it look extremely shady.
The five categories in the popup list a total of 560 + 447 + 515 + 348 + 479 = 2349 external sites! All of these are activated by default. Some of them cannot be deactivated but require visiting some external site that supposedly offers a form of opt-out. The explanation on this is extremely vague, also linking to external sites. I have some doubts whether this is even legal.
The majority of options are regular toggles and there is even an “Allow All” button. However, curiously, there is no “Reject All” button. Users who care about their privacy are forced to manually toggle literally over a thousand options. Nobody in their right mind could argue that this was an oversight. This kind of skirting legal requirements makes me question whether Hidden Monster Games is still trustworthy.
Here’s what I suggest:
- Review this list and only show companies that are actually involved. If all of these 2349 companies are actually relevant, please review your business model, because this is absurd.
- Make the info pop up actually usable. You obviously know how to build a proper UI.
edit: Also, why is curvefever.io still not using https?
