Google Adsense

Google Adsense is an example of a cookie that can be prevented, but once it's set there is no way for EU e-Privacy Directive to remove it because of the Same Origin Policy. This is what you will see if you're using Adsense. These cookies will remain after a user has chosen to remove cookies. This is OK though. As long as you prevent them from loading initially, when the user accepts cookies - it's Google who is placing these additional cookies on their computer.

When a user chooses to remove cookies, your site is no longer loading the Adsense javascript and that's all you can do because browsers have security measures in place to prevent one site from manipulating cookies from another site.

This is what it looks like. Don't lose your mind trying to find a way to remove them.
