On the topic of these consent flows, here you can see an approved GDPR-compliant flow. It’s not worth it. It’s impossible to make a good experience out of gaining consent for collecting people’s personal data. It’s too risky and expensive to build a business model from it.

@laura Arguably that's a feature. Collecting personal data should be rare and limited to the cases where it really is worth it.

@laura (somewhat ironic aside, techcrunch is under oath and.. yeah, their method of gaining consent is a nightmare)

@Jenkar @laura I was about to say the same.

I didn't even find how to do anything with their consent form, and so couldn't get to the article at all.
