This plugin helps you comply with GDPR in the following ways:

  • Granular cookie consent: Get categorised consent from website visitors to allow use of website and/or third-party cookies.
  • Revoke/change consent: Allow website visitors to revoke their consent or change their consent categories anytime.
  • Consent Log: Stores a consent log of consents given by website visitors. Sort or search the consent log to easily look-up history.
  • Cookie detector (auto-scan):  Quickly detects all your website cookies in one-click. Saves your time by populating cookie details and categorising cookies. 
  • Third-party cookie details: Automatically fetches the 3rd party cookie details, including privacy policy links of popular scripts.
  • Manually add/edit cookie details: Provides an easy-to-use interface where you can add details of cookies used on your website.
  • Auto cookie categorisation: Automatically categorises known third-party cookies into Necessary, Marketing, Analytics, and Preference categories. 
  • Fully-customisable cookie notice: Provides and easy interface to customise every aspect of your cookie notice including content, layout, position, and colors.
  • Auto-block third-party cookies: Auto-block known third-party cookies until the visitor has given consent.
  • Geo-targeting: Display or hide the cookie consent notice depending on the visitor’s location.

Note: Even if your business is US based, and your website audience is primarily US based, the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) requires you to implement cookie consent on your website.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What are cookies? And how do they present a privacy issue?

A. Cookies are bits of data that are passed from the website and stored on a visitor’s browser. The purpose of cookies is to remember and identify visitors when then return to a website. This is how websites and third-party tools like Google Analytics are able to track a visitors activity on a website. Such third-party tracking cookies compile data about a visitor’s actions on multiple websites and compile their browsing history. Which in turn, causes a privacy issue.

Q. What does the EU Cookie Law require me to do?

A. When a user first visits your site, you need to display a cookie banner. You also need to block non-necessary cookies (e.g. via Google Analytics, Facebook Ads/Like widgets, Adsense etc.) before user gives consent. The  cookies should only be loaded after informed consent has been provided by the user (prior consent). The website also needs to provide a compliant cookie policy.

Q. If I have a US based business, do I still have to worry about the EU Cookie law?

A. If a website gets visitors from EU countries, it needs to comply with the EU Cookie Law. And even if you don’t get website visitors from EU countries, the state of California has introduced a regulation called CalOPPA (California Online Privacy Protection Act) that has much of the same requirements as the GDPR and EU Cookie Law.

Q. Do I need to comply with CalOPPA even if my website is non-ecommerce and non-commercial?

A. According to CalOPPA, a commercial website is any website that helps you make money in some way. For example, if you offer services on your website, it’s still considered a commercial website. Also if you use third-party tracking services such as Google Analytics, you need to comply with privacy regulations.

Q. How does this plugin Identify the Cookies on my website?

A. The WP GDPR Cookie Consent plugin has a one-click scanner, that’ll scan your website for all the cookies. After the scan, it will show you the list of cookies used across your website. It will also automatically classify the non-exempt cookies into Marketing, Analytics and other categories. You can review and change the category if you need to. 

Q. Do I need to do Prior Blocking of Cookie Scripts?

A. Some cookies are not necessary to be blocked, for e.g. Technical Cookies – These are session cookies, preference cookies which are necessary for the website to function. Cookies which are used for statistics or analytics which don’t profile a user or anonymized data is stored are also not needed to be blocked. The plugin provides you with an interface in the admin to choose which scripts you want to block before accepting user consent.

Q. Does this generate a  GDPR Cookie Policy?

A. The plugin generates a cookie table which can be inserted in your existing Privacy Policy. WPLegalPages – A popular WordPress plugin can be used to generate GDPR privacy policy pages. If you are an existing customer of this plugin, you can raise a support ticket from your Premium Support Dashboard to get special discount on the WPLegalPages Plugin. 

Q. Do visitors now have to accept/reject cookies in order to use websites?

A. No. Only the ‘necessary’ cookies will be loaded until the user gives consent.
