Default pop up on start up

I am often getting a pop up when i open this site, asking me to allow personal data gathering.
i click NO, and get another one asking me if I'm sure. I have to click AGREE.

I can understand that once.
But why do I get it again and again and again?
Does the computer suffer from dementia?
Once is enough surely? Its VERY ANNOYING having to click almost every time i look in.
I stay logged in all the time so it cant even be excused as a new member.

who are you using for a browser and search engine...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

This has nothing to do with a browser. Its solely on this, and woodworking forum. Both owned by the same people.
No other site anywhere asks me more than once.

It may be time to clean out your cookies. That's the first thing that I try when pop-ups begin appearing, no matter what kind they are. It isn't happening for me here, not on Logon or when opening a post. It's easy to collect cookies when you visit websites. Some make it easier for you to use that website, while others spy on what you do on your computer. Trash all, or most of, of your cookies and see if that nuisance window goes away.

Use Free PCleaner after everytime you use the browser and you will see how many tags are added each time you browse.
https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download
I use the free version,and can update periodically the free version, if they want you to UPGRADE that is for the pay version.

Does this remove all cookies? even to sites that I regularly visit? Does that mean I will have to log every time?

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Unfortunately, when those protected by GDPR click no, it can't save the cookie that you said no, so the alert will continue to reappear.

Need admin assistance? Post here so we can help you!
