We have created privacy laws compliance checklist hints to help you create privacy laws compliant website. Basically, if you want your website to be GDPR compliant, select the option that shows the hint “GDPR compliant”, marked in green. If you see the hint “not GDPR compliant”, marked in red, it means that your Cookie Banner will not be GDPR compliant, so consider changing your selection.complinace hints 2

Step 4. Implement Google Consent Mode v2

If you want to continue using Google Advertisement products and do remarketing in the European Economic Area (EEA) and the UK, you must implement Google Consent Mode v2 by March 2024.

After you installed consent mode, select Basic or Advanced consent mode implementation.

Step 5. Copy your Cookie Banner code and install it on your website

Copy your cookie banner code from the CookieScript account

When you customized your cookie banner settings, CookieScript automatically generates a code, which will show a cookie banner and also control cookies on your website.

COOKIE BANNER CODE. Go to CookieScript user account > Settings > Main settings > Installation, where you will find your cookie banner code. To copy your cookie banner code, first, select one of the options from the geo-targeting.

Select global geo-targeting, if you want your cookie banner to be shown for all website users, independently of their countries of origin.

Select custom geo-targeting, if you want to show your cookie banner for website users from specific countries. For example, from a drop-down list, you can select, that your cookie banner will be shown for users from USA and EU.

Selecting custom geotargeting options

Second, copy your code. Here you have two options. Under the Your Code section, check the Script tag tab at the top right, and simply press the Copy script code button below.

DOWNLOAD AND HOST THE BANNER YOURSELF. You can also download and host a JavaScript file yourself. This will make your website independent of our servers. In the case of self-hosted banner code, we would not be able to update the banner, so you would need to re-upload the JavaScript file after making changes to the banner or cookie declaration. To download the JavaScript file, simply press the download JavaScript file button below.

Download and host the banner yourself

Install a cookie banner on your website

Paste your CookieScript installation code on your website. Add the code between the <head> and </head> tags of your website’s source code before any other script. This code should be inserted on every page where the banner should be shown. Save changes, refresh your website, and check if the cookie banner is active on your website.

We have also prepared integration instructions for the most popular systems. Choose your system to see exact integration instructions.
