FYI regarding cookie banner consent and GDPR
I noticed your cookie banner mentions you use functional as well as tracking cookies and has the ability to refuse them. This is good news and required due to the the GDPR.
Unfortunately, refusing cookies redirects me to some other site, informing me that I *have* to accept *all* of them or the site will keep on redirecting me.
This behavior was recently declared illegal by some privacy authorities, including the one in The Netherlands . To clear up the confusion: you don't require permission for functional cookies - you must inform the user of them, somewhere, however. You *do* have to ask explicit consent for tracking cookies however. You *must* also allow the user to deny these tracking cookies *without* forbidding them to access your site - unless you are using a paywall or some other paid service.
There appears to be no translated version of the referenced article, unfortunately. Perhaps a translation machine might do the trick, but I thought I'd let you know in any case!
