Cookiebot

To correctly implement Cookiebot on your website, follow the 3 steps below.

Step 1 - Create a Cookiebot account and add your domain

Sign up to create an account. Log in to your account and add your website domain name(s). Save. The website will now be scanned (please allow up to 24 hours for the scan to complete).

Step 2 - Choose the cookie consent banner you want to display on your website

Go to “Settings” and “Dialog” and choose your cookie consent banner. The default banner is configured with the strictest settings possible (suitable for cookie consent under GDPR and ePR).

Under “Settings” and “Content”, edit the default banner text so it fits your website and legal requirements.

Step 3 - Insert 2 scripts on your website to make the cookie consent banner and Cookie Declaration appear

Go to “Settings” and “Your scripts”.

1. Cookie consent banner: Copy the top script and insert it as the very first script within the HEAD-tag of your website. Inserting it as the very first script ensures that no cookies or trackers escape our automatic cookie blocking.

Example:

<html>
<head>
  <script id="Cookiebot" src="https://consent.cookiebot.com/uc.js" data-cbid="00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000" type="text/javascript". data-blockingmode="auto"></script>
</head>
<body>
  ...
</body>
</html>

2. Cookie Declaration: Copy the second script and insert it in the HTML on the specific page and at the exact position where you would like the Cookie Declaration to appear. This could be as a separate page on your website or embedded into an existing privacy policy. The standard Cookie Declaration lists all cookies and trackers discovered on your website and allows the user to withdraw (or change) a consent at any time – as required under e.g. GDPR.

Example: 

<html>
  ...
<body>
  <h1>Cookie Declaration</h1>
  <script id="CookieDeclaration" src="https://consent.cookiebot.com/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/cd.js" type="text/javascript" async></script>
</body>
</html> 

To round off, when the website scan is complete, check your scan report. If there are any unclassified cookies, log in to your account and under “Cookies” make sure to classify them and add a short purpose description. This classification helps ensure that all cookies and trackers on your website (except for ‘strictly necessary’ cookies) will automatically be blocked until a user has given consent. Only those categories of cookies the user has consented to will be activated upon consent – all other cookies will be held back automatically.
