Any relevant good example of privacy messages and user consent?
I'd be particularly interested to hear how people have dealt with cookie consent for GDPR. 'Affirmative choice and informed consent' is a minefield in that area - and results in some truly hideous blocking modal approaches (looking at you Invision...)
Seems like GDPR has produced a feedback loop of hysteria sending people into implementing ever more prominent cookie popups - overlooking the fact that many people still don't actually know what cookies are...
Do you mean “good” from the user's perspective, or from a business perspective? Because for many businesses, the best consent form is probably something that obscures the details and tries to force the visitor to choose YES! — using deceptive labels, tiny cancel buttons, manipulative copy.
I believe the best user consent form is the one you don't have.
If designing a consent thing is a challenge, then there are too many options (like a thousand 3rd party trackers and spammy newsletters).
Really enjoyed how the Ahrefs folks handled it: http://drp.mk/i/18vq3zvgZ1
Hey Ryan, what did you like about this example?
Hey Mitch. Just the simplicity of it. It wasn't a pain to deal with (actually showed up when I logged in without prompting) and made the purpose very clear.
