Implementing the cookie consent banner and cookie declaration
Script 1: The cookie consent banner
Log in to your account. Go to “Settings” and “Your scripts”. 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. Replace the blue higlighted code with your own code which you will find in the Cookiebot manager.
Script 2: The cookie declaration
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.
