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.

Oh man, that sort of shit makes me sick. Clearly deliberate and intentional. So many of these cookies preferences follow similar dark pattern approaches and it always drives me demented.

This is the sort of garbage that makes me choose different browsers for different jobs. e.g. on this phone I use Firefox Focus for opening most links, click "Yes" to cookies and then exit when I've finished. Focus bins all the cookies, tracking or whatever.

Have you complained about this? I've been doing a few similar complaints about attempts to subvert GDPR rules lately and could take this on if you have not yet done so. Also @NOYBeu.

As an American user I've never experienced this so I was super confused. Tried it on their .co.uk site and I can replicate the exact behavior. The hell?
