Sift privacy notice

Enough already

Didn't find your answer?

For the last week-or-so, literally every time I change page on AWeb, Sift’s privacy notice flashes up and makes me accept it. 

Literally every page. Open Any Answers, it appears. Select a thread, it appears. Write a response, it appears. Post that response, it appears. 

Is there a setting I need to change somewhere to remove this ‘featire’ (NB not all features are good) or are Sift just trying to reduce visits to their website even further?

I doubt theres an option for you to check to make it disappear, it sounds more like an issue with the website not storing the cookie properly, or its expiry time is set wrong. try a different browser?

It looks like it's only on my mobile (iPhone 8) that this happens.

Any ideas anyone?

Your browser isn't accepting the cookie that marks your acceptance of the privacy terms - it's your end, not theirs. Either change your privacy settings to permit cookies from AWeb, or try a different browser.

Sorry, I have hardly ever used Apple kit and am not familiar with the iPhone. You could try Googling "iphone cookie settings" and see what pops up ... Good luck.

Hi ALISK. Hopefully, you've got the answer from our the dear AccountingWEB community but to confirm, I checked with our Dev team and they echoed the advice already given in the thread: change your privacy settings to permit cookies from or try a different browser.

Surely their first advice was to try turning the phone off, then on again. Come on, what kind of IT people are you employing?!!

Could it be that your cookies are set not to be saved? So the site constantly “forgets” what you’ve previously input.
It’s a form of punishment for the privacy-conscious.
