Do Not Sell toggle is misleading




Jan 28, 2022


magazines, Other, publishing


The “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link from the bottom of the homepage leads to a window where the default state is to “Sell My Personal Information On This Site Using Cookies.” However, the toggle button is unclear – because it is not labelled, it is not immediately obvious whether it is in the “on” or “off” state. Plus, even after toggling the button, you have to remember to click the “Confirm My Choices” button or changes to the setting will not be saved. Note that this link is for California residents only per the 2020 CCPA legislation.
