With the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Rule GDPR, prior consent is required for websites to use user cookies. As a result, many websites have taken the form of displaying a banner at the bottom of the website and asking the user for consent. However, these banners take up most of the browser screen and take away readability, especially on smartphones with small screens. In addition, the use of design dark patterns that are intended to deceive users if they agree is also a problem.
Against this background, ADPC is newly proposed. ADPC sets personal information in the browser in advance, and when a user visits a website, the setting is reflected by communication.
“cookies”: “Store and / or access cookies on your device.”,
“ads_profiling”: “Create a personalized ads profile”
Also, in the case of the method through the HTTP header, the web server connects directly to the consent file in the response to HTTP GET.
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Link :; rel = “consent-requests”
When the web browser detects this link, it responds to settings configured by the previous user or prompts the user to respond via a pop-up dialog. And if the user configures it, the browser will include the ADPC in future HTTP GET requests like the one below.
GET /page.htm HTTP / 1.1
ADPC: withdraw = * consent = cookies
