Hey @StarbucksUK and @TrustArc if you get rid of the unnecessary timeouts there won't be any need for this processing "status". This only happens when you customise your privacy settings, can you explain that? Funny how some dark patterns are just accepted.

@Starbucks @TrustArc proof that it doesn't have to take almost a minute to set client side cookies. In the first run I've crippled the timeout, the second run is stock.

@TrustArc are notorious for this. They're not even skirting the GDPR requirements, they're straight up in breach of the spirit and the letter of the law.

they're going to excuse themselves that they are just bad with asynchronous stuff and that was the only thing that fixed bugs. lots of software adding 1.5 second timeouts to everything these days as asynchronicity is omnipresent

And nobody should buy it. This didn't come about from a bug, this delayed behaviour had to be an explicit requirement.

Tried to watch a YouTube live stream, at Starbucks, got 404 from YouTube but could visit all other YT videos - only way that is possible is through an agreement between Starbucks and YouTube - how much do we bet that YouTube shares my account details with Starbucks too!?
