I've quite often had similar ones when trying to access newspapers in Europe or USA.

It means that the website owners are not prepared to give you any choice about how they use your data.

Commonly this will be because they are selling your information to advertisers.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

It certainly means that.  But equally it can mean that the American website simply can't be bothered to cater for non-American, specifically European,users.  I often find that message on sites of American regional/local newspapers.  When GDPR first came in there was a lot of scaremongering in the US which led to the web hosting companies plonking these blocks on no-US visitors to be on the safe side for their clients the newspapers or whoever else this example is.

Can you use a VPN to access it.  Epic Browser lets you select from about ten servers in different countries so you can get around these restrictions.
