&lt;li&gt;You must clearly separate cookies requiring consent from those that do not (Don&rsquo;t collect consent for cookies that do not need it).&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Consent must be granular. However, it&rsquo;s not clear how granular. The DPAs have simply mentioned that &quot;it must be possible to select single processing activities singularly&quot;.&lt;/li&gt;

                                <p>There are two aspects to this requirement:</p>
                                <ul>
                                    <li>You must clearly separate cookies requiring consent from those that do not (Don’t collect consent for cookies that do not need it).</li>
                                    <li>Consent must be granular. However, it’s not clear how granular. The DPAs have simply mentioned that "it must be possible to select single processing activities singularly".</li>
                                </ul>
                                <p>However, so far there has been no practical implementation of a cookie-by-cookie selection, or any literature or case-law on the matter. As an extreme level of granularity may actually confuse and reduce transparency for users, it seems likely that per-purpose grouping would be sufficient in this case.</p>
