What is this thing that I'm seeing lately with "Legitimate interests"? It's come up to the popups in the last weeks I think, I don't recall seeing such stuff before.

Yesterday I had a thing where I set all cookies to off manually, and then saw a tab called "Legitimate interests", opened it and found a bunch more of cookies to opt out off.

Is that some new hack of the laws?

European commission should have made not anything except explicit opt-in mandatory.

@zladuric it isa ground to use and collect personal data that does not rely on consent. It should be rather narrow in scope by design, and I doubt many websites should be able to claim this without controversy.
