Happening to me as well. I'm guessing it's an EU-wide thing after GDPR.

Great that you don't get the choice of disabling tracking, as well. You can choose to have targeted tracking ads, or non-targeted tracking ads. :roll2:

Yeah, might be a GDPR thing as I don't get it in the US. Also, :lol: at meaningful choice.

I don't get that popup in the US either, but GDPR has affected me a lot too and it's pretty annoying, really (like, really). :lol:

Is your browser set to not save cookies, or are you clearing them? A specific cookie "DATA_USE_CONSENT" needs to be kept in your browsers cookie files as that's what saves your response.

GDCP is only set to show for members in the EU/UK as their privacy laws changed. You wont see it from America.

Hmm,

We gave this a test and it disappeared after clicking either option. This happens to users who left caches (not cookies) cleared at all times.
Members had "clear all cache on browser exit" checked, and because of that, each time you enter into forum, you would be asked again for consent.
When you un-checked that option, cache would provide info to pop-up script and would not ask for consent again, since info of previous choice was available.
Do you have any extensions running on your browser?
