GDPR is now in place since May 2018, but most websites are failing to catch up with the regulation.
As it may be a hassle, if you have a website in the EU, you’re required by law to obey this act.
It will look like this:
1. Register at Cookiebot.com
Register an account and confirm your email address.
This website allows you to create a consent banner, that you need to install on your website.
Enter your domain name, then move on to the dialog tab.
Edit the following settings (or copy my settings below):
Template: Where you want to display your consent banner.
Method: Hide the banner after the user selected the options, or display it at all times.
Type: The depth of options you want the user to select from.
3. Install the script
Now that you’ve finished the setup, the only thing left is installing the script.
You need to install this script to the <head> of all your pages.
Move to the “Script” tab and copy the top code.
1. Install the plugin “Insert Headers & Footers”.
2. Open Settings -> Headers and Footers
3. Copy the code to the “Scripts in Header” section.
4. Click save.
1. Open the source code of your web pages
2. Insert the code between the <head> and </head> section.
You might want to ask your developer to do this. Only to make sure there are no mistakes made.
You now have a functioning GDPR consent banner on your webpage.
What’s more, Cookiebot will automatically translate the consent banner to the visitor’s language.
Did you manage to set up your banner?
Was it easy?
