Guarantee of compliance with the law
The text model shown has tried to follow all the guidelines of the AGPD, but as I stated earlier in this post, doing so or with this text today can not guarantee in any way that the law of cookies is being complied with. agreement with the interpretation of the AGPD (although I understand that it is the most approximate). For this we must wait for the clarifications that the AGPD will undoubtedly provide us with soon.

Faced with the impossibility of meeting each user before a notary to give their consent with all the information and explanations before being able to browse the Web, some people argue that it would be safer if the entire text of the cookie policy was before the entrance in the Web, before loading any cookie and before being able to initiate any navigation, but is it possible?
