Is there a specific reason the World Bank site's cookie policy does not comply with GDPR/ e-privacy requirements of Privacy by Default? While the WB enjoys privileges and immunities it seems that its message is that it wants to align with the highest privacy standards.

These are such good points , realistic and reflective of the situation both for industry and for consumers. I.e. "why not disclose what you DON'T do with the data ?" and "we need to move from just meeting compliance to avoid getting sued "
