Cookie Script & GDPR

Posted in Notes on 6 June 2022

Quick guide to using Cookie Script for GDPR and cookie tracking.

Cookie Script is a tool that helps website owners comply with cookie consent requirements and regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union. Cookies are small files stored on a user’s device that collect data about their browsing behavior or preferences.

Cookie Script provides a solution for implementing a cookie consent banner or pop-up on websites. The tool enables website owners to inform visitors about the use of cookies and obtain their consent before any cookies are placed on their devices. This helps ensure transparency and user control over their personal data.

Key Features

Customizable cookie consent banner: Website owners can customize the appearance, style, and content of the cookie consent banner to align with their website’s design and branding.

Cookie categorisation: Cookie Script allows categorizing cookies based on their purpose, such as essential cookies, analytical cookies, advertising cookies, etc. This helps users understand the different types of cookies and their implications.

Granular consent options: Visitors can be presented with the option to give or withhold consent for specific cookie categories or individual cookies, depending on the level of granularity supported by the tool.

Cookie policy generator: Cookie Script often includes a cookie policy generator that helps generate a comprehensive and compliant cookie policy for the website. This policy explains the types of cookies used, their purposes, and how users can manage their cookie preferences.

Automatic cookie blocking: Some versions of Cookie Script provide the ability to automatically block cookies before obtaining user consent. This ensures that cookies are not set until the user has given their explicit consent.

Reporting and compliance tools: Cookie Script may offer reporting and compliance features that allow website owners to track and document user consent, maintain records, and demonstrate compliance with relevant regulations.

It’s worth noting that Cookie Script is one of several tools available for implementing cookie consent solutions. Website owners should choose a tool that aligns with their specific requirements and complies with applicable privacy laws in their jurisdiction.
