EU disclaimer?[edit]

I'm a bit unsure about this:

On July 25, 2003, the new EU Electronic Communication Act was passed. According to this act, the user of a web site must be informed that the site uses cookies. The user must also be given the opportunity to block the use of cookies. A user who does not want to use cookies may block these in his or her browser.

The Wikimedia Foundation is based in San Francisco and has no presence in the European Union. The info here may also be outdated, given the w:General Data Protection Regulation passed in 2016.

I've tried to update the technical aspects (breaking down exactly what cookies are being sent) but I really can't advise on the laws of random foreign jurisdictions. What's here, though, looks outdated. K7L (talk) 02:13, 18 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
