Anyone else have problems with PCA cookie policy popping up everytime you change page?

Clicking got it doesn't stop it and manage preferences is the same even if you switch off everything in there and no you can't have access to my data and usage.

244 vendors to switch off no wonder the site is slow sometimes.

Come on PCA sort it out ;0)

"...or because in general it didn't interest us too much."

My guess is that has a lot to do with it. The legislation was pretty dry and uninteresting at first glance, although it should have a marked effect on our lives in the future. As with all new laws, the devil will be in the detail, and no law has any teeth unless you catch the people who break it.

The whole thing I find confusing. I am asked to agree to a privacy policy which if I do results in the complete opposite giving them permission to send unwanted communications. To me that means agree to give up your privacy. If I have missunderstood I am happy to be corrected.

bumpkin - you've hit the proverbial cookie nail on the head.

All websites that drop cookies (and remember that some cookies are good!) on citizens from the EEA have to now get consent from those users.

You don't get new cookies mining your data, just the usual. Most of these are used to personalise either the site content or advertising on the site. GDPR states that the website user should be able to manage which cookies are dropped. Many websites don't allow this or block content if you don't consent - neither approach is actually proper GDPR compliance. Our unit ins't perfect (and we will continue to refine) but it is more compliant than most.

The law is a bit of a sledgehammer to crack a nut, and in the end will probably make the Google/Facebook monopolies stronger and everyone else weaker - which I'm sure was not the original intention.

But it's the law, and will remain so even if the UK leaves the EEA as far as we can tell.

Hoping it had been sorted by now but I still experience the intrusions on every new page I open.

It really id time it was fixed.

No other website seems to have this problem, one click is enough.

Every new page on phone and tablet, both Samsung. A real pain in the posterior.

Fixed for me however it seems to not have been fixed until you click on one of the choices to accept cookies etc.
