Implement the cookie consent banner

Implement the Cookiebot cookie consent banner and policy scripts on your website by following the 3 steps below.

Step 1. Create a Cookiebot account

  • Sign up to create an account.
  • Fill in the form and accept the terms of service.

Log in to your account

  • Log in to your account and add your website domain name(s).
  • Save. The cookie scanner will now scan your website (please allow up to 24 hours for the scan to complete).

Implement 2 cookie scripts on your website to make the cookie consent banner and cookie declaration appear. (Use Google Tag Manager, the Cookiebot WordPress plugin or Java script). Read our manual for further instructions. Need help? Ask your website engineer. Still need help? Send us an e-mail an we will assist you.

To round off, when the cookie scanner has completed, 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 instead by following our manual implementation guide.

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, language (40 + languages available) so it fits your website and legal requirements.
