    Hi there!

    Thanks for your request! This topic deserves a separate post, but to give you a brief overview, the upcoming ePrivacy Regulation sets new rules for cookies (again!) and pushes the responsibility of handling them properly more in the hands of the browser than the website. You can read more about this topic here: https://www.i-scoop.eu/gdpr/eu-eprivacy-regulation/#The_EU_ePrivacy_Regulation_and_cookies

    So taking this into account, we’d prefer not to add any features that will have to be removed again in the near future. However, the last time I asked our lawyer friends at Triniti about this, there were multiple different opinions about what “near future” means. There’s a chance that the new ePrivacy Regulation won’t come into force for a while, which in turn means that we would be stuck with GDPR’s cookie handling rules.

    We will postpone development on this at least until May and hope that by that time, we’ll have a better idea of what we actually need to do. But we are aware that this is an important requirement and it’s definitely in our todo list.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!
