A couple of months ago, the blue "privacy" wheel was introduced (at least for members accessing the forum from Europe). I usually turn everything "off" and object to the "legitimate interest" options. A couple of weeks ago I discovered that most of the time, the settings switch to "on" between sessions and the objections get removed although I allow the page to set cookies. This is independent of the login status. I now painstakingly switch everything off at the beginning of each session (which may be too late to prevent the system to obtain the private information it collects). I now discover that the setting allowing "Precise geolocalization data and identification through device scanning" comes "on" again immediately after I switch it off. There is no way anymore to have it permanently "off". I do not want anybody to localise me or to scan my devices. What is up with this? What is the experinence of fellow European forum members?
