Additionally, the guidelines include the regulation of other sensitive aspects such as how to obtain consent from minors younger tan 14 years old, the possibility to collect consent in one website for several domains of the same editor with a similar content, the cookie related responsibilities or the possibility to deny the provision of a service in case the cookies are not accepted, in some specific situations.
