Cookie law Guest_id cookie by platform.twitter.com still dropped


#1

I have made a widget via the twitter settings and checked the disable personalisation because of the cookie law, and according to the megathread no cookies should be dropped.

However the case is platform.twitter.com still drops a cookie(check on http://www.plantinasport.nl)

The contents of the cookie:
Cookie set by: platform.twitter.com
Name: guest_id
Value:v1%3A137104132641025560

This cookie is also not allowed in The Netherlands and there is no option to ask for permission.

Then there is also the problem if a user views our website and is already logged in to twitter.com.
Then the following cookies are dropped, whilst I have said to no personalisation, and this is certainly not allowed by EU cookie law:

===============================================================================

Can this please be fixed so the twitter widget is fully compliant with EU cookie law?

If I check the checkbox so I can be compliant, I am expecting compliant behaviour.

Hey there ! Was your problem solved ? I also get guest_id cookie set. I was wondering what it does, and whether it should be kept confidential, or whether it can be made public. Do you know about that ?
