If you open the website the first time, even without login, the cookie request appear and if you check by default is set to  advertisement when the GDPR explicit say the default option should be required only (and looking at the webpage should not require any cookies IMHO)

Hmm never seen a cookie request even with all the caches etc cleared.

Maybe more detail in case its a browser I dont use etc etc.
It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

try using "private" mode. If that still does not appear, then is even worse, could be a specif bug but need to be fixed too.

Think it is "locale" specific.
It would make more sense

None of that crap here in NZ (yet).

Does this have to do with that stupid ass-covering EU cookie law?
Every dumbass must know by now that every site tries to sell your information to whoever wants to pay for it.
If you don't want that, you shouldn't use the internet at all.

Its an EU directive I think.
Dont ask me what I thinks of the EU as pigs in a trough sucking in member states money like its thier own piggy bank comes to mind, while making up rules without more than a brain cells worth of information to do it.

I am a strong supporter of the EU. I would be interested to hear if you have any evidence to justify your viewpoint.

And I certainly don't think that rules aimed at protecting our privacy by requiring explicit consent to cookies are a bad thing. If they don't have equivalent rules in your country then shame on your law makers.

Unfortunately Robin the reports of misspending and lack of accounts or accountability are everywhere.
Going so far as in some cases to self justification that they dont need to comply with accounting rules.

Even thier own accounts teams are at a loss on it

Point is how can you make rules for others when you dont follow rules in the first place ?

I have not studied your link but, even if it is correct, where do they do that sort of thing better?

Major difference between "minor" accounting errors and over 400 BILLION methinks Robin.
So as to where they do better leaves a lot of options on the table from business to as far as countries even.

But YES I get your drift and the US is first to mind as to how not to do business in politricks

My problem with laws like these is that they are all knee-jerk and no real substance.  Sure you've made people tell when they're using cookies.  If you think that solves anything about privacy or safety on the internet then you don't understand how technology works.  In just a few short years it will be a moot point.  People will stop using cookies and move on to some other technique now that you've made cookies inconvenient.  I don't know what it is, but I am absolutely certain that the replacement for the cookie has already been invented and at least one person has figured out how to revolutionize everything with it and at least one other person has figured out how to use it to rip a bunch of people off.  It's human nature that's the problem, not the tech-du-jour.

Please do not PM with technical questions or comments.  Keep Arduino stuff out on the boards where it belongs.
