Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do you show cookie consent?

Here are some popular methods for displaying cookie consent:

  • Cookie Banner: A visible banner appears at the top or bottom of the webpage when a user first visits your site. The banner explains cookie usage and offers buttons for "Accept" and potentially "Reject" or "Settings" for more granular control.
  • Slide-in/Pop-up: Similar to a banner, but this notification pops up in the center of the screen and may require the user to take action (e.g., clicking "Accept") before they can fully interact with the website.
  • Cookie Preference Center: A dedicated page explains cookie usage and provides options for users to customise their consent preferences for different cookie categories. This is often linked from the initial cookie banner.
