Some of these consent forms are an all or nothing, even under GDPR. That is true, they are designed that way om purpose of course.

GDPR, will it really work?
I find this fascinating.  Some of these consent forms are an all or nothing, even under GDPR.  Fortunately I a) don't have a Facebook account and b) don't have a google account.  I refuse.  Last left is Amazon.  Somehow I start getting advertisements of thing I ALREADY bought on Amazon.  What the heck?  I don't need their suggestions.  I look for what I want when I need it, not because they advertise or 'recommend' something I don't want and don't need.
