Why do they force cookie consent on people? Surely well wriiten code should default to minimum and give customers the choice?

That you can post to this forum is totally irrelevant. You are the only one experiencing problems when following the links which strongly suggests that you most likely either have a configuration problem with your PC/laptop/phone or are running blocking software.

Strange.

You would think the error wouldbe consistant or at least be a bit more helpful.

How are other sites irrelevant?

Surel a configuration problem or blocking software would raise issues with other sites, not just Plusnet?

In reply to a post by hk11:
Why do they force cookie consent on people? Surely well wriiten code should default to minimum and give customers the choice?

Cookie consent is a required legal basis under the GDPR for websites to have in order to be able to collect, process or share the personal data of individuals inside the EU.

It also gives the customers a choice what cookies to set / store etc.

Andrew says that Plusnet switch between 12 and 18 month contracts, so I will just have to wait and see if they continue to do that; assuming I can even load their web page(s) of course. wink

Why are things so complicated? How does the average user cope, when companies like Plusnet ignore customers?

My point is some sites seem to manage to handle this without causing too many problems where as others don't. Newspaper sites seem to be a general example: refusing to let customers see any of the site without completing the cookie consent. I for one just close the page and Google for an alternative. wink

I asked that because the page that the tbb links go to tell you to do that if already with them. (Which I found after suggesting it could be a cookie problem, and realising my question was therefor3 irrelevant).

I didn't realise you could do this?

My account is some years old i.e. I haven't had them as a supplier for about three years.
