Remove Reoccurring Cookies Bar

How can I permanently remove the cookie’s bar at the bottom on both mobile/desktop? Very annoying that it keeps coming back.

        <blockquote><em><a href="#450534">In reply to brad-sams:</a></em></blockquote><p>I have cleared the entire Edge history including cookies on my Android phone, restarted phone, resigned back into Thurrott Premium, and the problem is still there.</p><p><br></p><p>Weirdly, my primary entry point to Thurrott articles is via Feedly and the cookies notice bar has persisted. Having now flushed the cookies AND browsed the Thurrott website by clicking random article links, the problem may have now disappeared. When I return to Feedly and open articles on Thurrott, the cookies bar is no longer showing.</p><p><br></p><p>This is only an "on the spot" test and I will continue to evaluate over time. If the problem persists, I'll repost an update.</p>

          <blockquote><em><a href="#450592">In reply to Lerch:</a></em></blockquote><p>I access via the address and see the bar occasionally reappear in Safari on iOS 13 Beta and in Firefox on Windows 10.</p>

    <p>Blame the EU for the cookie policy. If it doesn't show up on a site someone visits, the EU will fine them.</p><p>But these sites shouldn't show it on non EU sites.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#450808">In reply to Lordbaal:</a></em></blockquote><p>If they get EU visitors, they'd probably be held to it. So barring blocking EU visitors entirely (which is out of the question), there's not much they can do.</p>

        <blockquote><em><a href="#451090">In reply to Jackwagon:</a></em></blockquote><p>That's my point. It's because of EU laws. </p>

          <blockquote><em><a href="#451363">In reply to Lordbaal:</a></em></blockquote><p><br></p><p>I was hoping that since this cookie thing is rampant that when I went to Sesame Street's website that they'd have Cookie Monster at the bottom giving me the EU cookie message…. much like I was once excited to go to Canada to get a Royale with Cheese. In both situations, I was disappointed. No Cookie Monster, and they call it a Quarter Pounder in Canada too despite the metric system.</p>

    <p>and when you click on the link in the bar to "Find out more about our cookie policy here" you get another bar on that page…</p>
