Content from that website may not be shared on Facebook, Twitter or any other social network.
The website will not be able to adapt the contents to the personal preferences of the user, as is often the case in online stores.
You will not be able to access the personal area of said website, such as My account, My profile, or My orders.
Online stores: It would be impossible for a user to make purchases online. They would have to be made by telephone or by visiting a physical store, if available.
It would not be possible to customize your geographical preferences, such as, time zone, currency or language.
The website could not perform web analytics on visitors and traffic on the website, which will make it difficult for the website to become competitive.
It would not be possible, for the user who so considered it, to write in a blog, in case the web page had one at some point, nor could it be possible to upload photos, post comments, to provide feedback or rate content. The website will also not be able to realize whether the user is human or either an automated application that publishes spam.
Sectorized advertising could not be shown, which would reduce the advertising revenue of the website.
