do I understand the theme documentation correct, that the Cookie banner I can enable and edit, is always showing just the banner, but doesn't work as an opt-in consent tool?
Reason I'm asking is because judgement of EJC / EUGH implicates that no cookies are allowed to be set w/o prior opt-in by the visitor. This makes the current feature somehow a cosmetical feature as it's no longer GDPR compliant.
Tests occurred that, e.g. Polylang sets language selection cookie, regardless of any cookie banner acceptance by the visitor. So Polylang broadly ignores theme cookie settings.
Question #1: Is my understanding of the Cookie feature in them correct?
Question #2: Is there any easy workaround to convert this in an opt-in version, in order to get control of plugin cookies, e.g. to 'sandbox' Polylang so that this plugin doesn't set the cookie? What I could find at Polylang in FAQ is not helpful, as there answer on this seems to be outdated.
I thought I better post this here, as I imagine all EU-users of the theme have to face these aspects in order to be GDPR compliant also within the future.
Thanks in advance for clarification.
