To correctly implement Cookiebot CMP on your website, follow the 3 steps below.
Step 1 – Create a Cookiebot CMP account and add your domain
Step 2 – Choose the cookie consent banner and widget you want to display on your website
Go to “Settings” and “Dialog” and choose your cookie consent banner. Under “Widget” you can configure your widget appearance. The default banner and widget are configured with the strictest settings possible (suitable for cookie consent under GDPR and ePR).
Under “Settings” and “Content”, edit the default banner and widget text so it fits your website and legal requirements.
Step 3 – Insert the scripts on your website to make the cookie consent banner and the widget (and the cookie declaration) appear
Go to “Settings” and “Your scripts”.
1. Cookie consent banner and widget: 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. This script will guarantee that the banner is shown for consent collection and the widget is shown for consent changes and withdrawal. The Cookiebot CMP widget allows the user to withdraw (or change) their consent at any time – as required under e.g. GDPR.
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.
- You can disable the automatic cookie blocking feature and make a manual implementation of Cookiebot CMP instead by following our manual implementation guide.
