I got the box which asks whether to allow personalized advertising when I went to an article, and already ticked 'Decline'. However, afterwards the box continued to reappear in the lower left corner, whenever opening an article or just refreshing the current page. Isn't it supposed to ask only once?

I got rid of it by blocking the offending element ('pw-cookie-window') in ublock . However you might want to fix it for other users.

Could you send me the details of the element from ublock ? That window wasn't served by ANN. It likely came through ANN from one of our ad-networks.

The Ublock info might tell me which network, and I'll contact them.

Here's a screenshot; https://imgur.com/a/IQ4LVPt (lower left corner)

This is the only info I found in ublock while unblocking/blocking it;

fast.animenewsnetwork.com##.pw-cookie-window


Also, I was on a US server(vpn) and it didn't appear, but once I switched to one in France it did. So I assume it has something to do with EU's GDPR.

Re-blocked as it keeps reappearing.

Edit; Just an idea, if it's somehow trying to place a third-party cookie the behaviour would make sense as I have those disabled. But the string in ublock only lists the ANN domain.

It was a company called po.st. They provide the various "share" buttons at the bottom.
