You could potentially argue that that popup is the most GDPR compliant popup out there...

Except for when you go to manage who gets to see your data and you have to uncheck the hundreds of companies that you don't want to see it, because they've assumed your consent which is against GDPR compliance.

Yes, that is exactly what I mean! From what I understand, GDPR does not allow for companies to make it so difficult and time consuming for the users to decline tracking that they are practically forced to "agree" because they are pressed for time or don't understand the complicated options (or by making it look as if "accept" is the only option when it not).
