The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

Google Cookie Notice

Blogger: Krazy Glew's Blog - All posts: "European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.

As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.

You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. "
Google tells me I am responsible for the verifying the cookies notice... but they also tell me "If you use a custom domain, you won't see the notice outside of the EU." Well, I do use a custom domain, and I can't see the cookies notice because I am not in the EU. I don't think I have modified anything that would affect Google's cookies, but shit happens - if it isn't tested, it probably doesn't work. So, how do I test it? Pay for a VPN to make me look like I am coming from the EU? Run my browser through TOR?

Since you, Google/Blogger/Blogspot, are adding the cookies, YOU are responsible for verifying that the cookie notice works.

Heck - I would actually like to post this cookies notice for all viewers of my blog, not just EU viewers.
