Airtable has just released a popup to allow cookies on all embed views making my app not usable anymore....

Each time I refresh the page, the same popup is displayed !

How can I get rid of this popup allowing cookie ?

Thank you for your help!

I also thought about the last point you mention. Why is a cookie needed at all?

Cookies are not needed on these embed views.

The only example I have in mind is calendly, on which there is a way for the user to disable the cookie popup when you share an embed calendar.

On smartsuite, retable, notion... or any other competitors you see there is no cookie popup at all on embed views.

The act of saying no I don't accept cookies and then Airtable reinforcing the exact same popup after a clear NO from the user is a clear breach of the GDPR as Airtable does not log the answer from the user...

If nothing is done by Airtable product & legal team asap, I will warn the GDPR authorities about it.

I am waiting for the reply of both the legal & product Airtable team on Monday as they also told me they are on holiday.

This is really frustrating - any update? Is it worth us all contacting support?

Yes we have to contact them everyday, this topic has the most views and kudos in the whole show & tell section in the Airtable community.

If this community is useful, it will be added on the roadmap for the next feature delivery.

OK have done - I have also sent a link to this thread so should be clear it is critical to remove it - it even screws up how the user visits the page as scrolls down to the bottom! As in this example - https://thisishaslemere.co.uk/eventsbydate
