I am repeatedly having to confirm my choices. Someone please make it stop.

If only

I also wonder what can possibly be the 'authorised use' - or whatever the wording is, don't have it in front of me now - of various categories of advertising material. I disallow the whole lot every time. Never confident that it makes any difference.

It is absolutely ridiculous. Makes me literally growl at the screen when it comes up.x

It’s aggravating but it’s the law.

If you stay logged in then you won't have to keep doing it.

You can also go to settings and “allow all cookies".

I think I am logged in all the time. Had to do it again yesterday and clocked that what I am objecting to is 'Legitimate interest' which seems to cover everything. I always disallow it and don't think I've missed anything.

I agree, it's absolutely mad. Surely once is enough. This kind of thing leads people to ignore it anyway.

Unless I go into History and delete all cookies before I log off it must automatically save my preferences - can you change your settings?

I do delete them fairly regularly but not every time I log off.

I do stay logged in. And I don’t want to allow all cookies. I want to disallow all cookies.

Don`t allow all cookies.

3 horizontal lines top right on your computer. Go to settings privacy and security, and cookie settings on your computer. Find all the gn cookies and delete them

You will need to log into gn and the cookie list will pop up. Go through every one of them and switch them off one at a time and confirm

Do not log off or you will have to do all this again

Best also to restart your computer after deleting the gn cookies
