Implicit & Explicit Opt-In Info

Information about Implicit & Explicit Opt-In

The European Commission with her EU Data Protection Reform means, that she has made the Internet fit for the digital age.

The Internet users and website visitors want to know which of your data and information are stored when using the internet and how the data and information are processed and whether they are shared and visited and analyzed.

Internet users and website visitors leave data and information about your use of the Internet. Leaving data and information with the use of the Internet is partly necessary for the communication between the servers and computers, such as desktop, laptop, notebook, smartphone, tablets and many more mobile devices.

There is a significant difference between television and the internet. When you watch TV, you see and hear something that is emitted by a device via electromagnetic waves. This is still similar to seeing and hearing, so to receive, from natural light waves and sound waves. On the Internet, you can see and hear something that you have transferred from a server memory to your computer memory. This is similar to seeing and hearing a video on a videocassette received from an archive whose delivery you have commissioned. Radio and television is a delivery without an order. Internet is a delivery with order. Each call and call a domain and subdomain and a URL and a link on the Internet is a binding order.

The problematic thing is that an Internet user does get nothing without a requested. Only with a request he gets something and that will stored to his computer. If this is software that is built into web pages and stores information as well as starts on call, this may be undesirable. Webpages can include PHP and Javascript scripts. PHP and Javascript scripts are software.

To receive files and documents as well as content over the Internet, you must leave an address to which the retrieved is to be sent. When you retrieve and send your address, a connection is established between the server and your computer. With this connection, your computer will send many more information, but also information will be generated by the process and information that you have posted elsewhere on the Internet.

The information sent by your computer includes, among other things, the user agent information. The user agent information includes the operating system version and the browser version. One of the among other things is a timestamp.

A User Agent information stored in the server access log file by each request:
Address - - Timestamp - - "Resource" Status - "User Agent"
123.456.789.0 - - [01/Jan/2018:00:00:00 +0000] "GET /foo/ HTTP/1.1" 200 987 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0"

Based on the IP address and route tracking of the transfer of files, documents and content, the geographical location can be determined. Habits can be determined with the resource and timestamp. Although there is anonymity, but by the resulting information, it is always lower.

Further information is all data that you have sent knowingly or unknowingly somewhere on the Internet. Some of this information has access to several people. Thus, information that you have sent in various places on the Internet can be merged.

Cookies may be used to collect information. Cookies are files of information stored on the Internet user's computer hard drive. The software used on a website can read the cookies stored on your computer.

The European Commission wants to enforce more transparency with its regulation. The owners and providers of files, documents, software and content on the Internet must now inform the user, which data and information about the user are stored and analyzed and who has access to everything.

In most cases, it has become necessary to inform Internet users only that information is stored and analyzed. The internet user has to accept this tacitly. The most common method is that by storing a cookie the hint can be hidden by the internet user. This method is called implicit Opt-in.

In rare cases, the content of a Web page will not be sent until the note of which information has been saved and analyzed has been confirmed. This method uses a blocking content webpage. This method is called explicit Opt-in.

An opt-out is used for the ability to visit and use a web page without further information being stored. In most cases, a cookie containing this information is used.
