But your privacy may be your concern.

The requirements of the laws have not changed that much with the introduction 
of the GDPR, they are just more unified over all Europe and more enforced.

Because service providers can only process the minimum personal data for 
providing the service to you, they need to ask you before they can use
your data for marketing purposes. So agreeing explicietly to a technical 
session cookie only is not strictely speaking necessary, it is the web site 
provider that want you to agree to more, so they can use your personal data 
to sell your attention to advertisment services.
