BusinessMirror website falls a tad short of a *good* cookie policy


What's good: The cookies are classified, with the names of the providers, purpose for tracking, and expiry spelled out.

What's bad: Despite stating that only 9 cookies are absolutely necessary to keep the website working as it should, BusinessMirror still fails to provide users with the options to customize which cookies to allow and block. Thus, clicking on the ALLOW ALL COOKIES button would not be sufficient compliance of the requirement under the Data Privacy Act that consent should be freely-given, specific, and informed.

Ask yourself this: Are you willing to subject yourself to 89 marketing trackers just to read one news article? Shouldn't BusinessMirror give you the option to say "No"?
