Then you must have clicked the OK button, rather than "More Information", when first shown this huge pop-up:
techxplore popped up:
This site uses cookies to assist with navigation, analyse your use of our services, and provide content from third parties. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.
Clicking "More information" takes you to a several-fold-long Science X page, at the bottom of which is a link:
scien sex said:
You can read details about our GDPR compliance and the kinds of data we collect on our GDPR page[^]
The "GDPR page" claims to give you the ability to:
• Block third-party slurping.
• Demand that any stored personal information be deleted.

The links on the GDPR page all lead to this page[^], which does not provide the possibility to do anything even remotely like:
• Blocking third-party slurping.
• Demanding that any stored personal information be deleted.

All it does is allow you to delete an account that you don't want to create in the first place.

The third-party slurping continues throughout, and the only personal details that they delete are the account details.

Given how trustworthy these people obviously are, it was probably not a good idea to click the "OK" button.
