    But I have accepted them, why are they giving me a chance to change my mind

    I use matomo to track visitors to the sites I run. You can replay user sessions...

    Could be your browser is set to clear cookies and data when it's closed. I have this setting enabled in Firefox but they have a 'manage exceptions' override so can add sites I frequently visit so I don't get pestered every visit.

    So now I just accept cookies whenever a privacy pop-up appears, knowing that most will be cleared automatically when I close the browser.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
