It is assumed that you have already had experience with GTM and your GTM account is created, also you created a website container in GTM and added the GTM container snippet to your website as required: https://support.google.com/tagmanager/answer/6103696.

Implementing the Cookie-Script popup box in GTM

In your GTM Workspace create a new tag by clicking New tag > Custom HTML Tag. In the HTML field, insert Cookie-Script code.

<!--Start Cookie Script--> 
<script type="text/javascript" charset="UTF-8"
src="http://chs03.cookie-script.com/s/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.js">
</script> <!--End Cookie Script-->

Next, click Add trigger choose DOM Ready and apply a name to your tag.

Your final tag configuration window should look like this. (unique number of .js file have been changed ):

cookie code

In the end, click "Publish" to apply your changes to your website.

That is all.

Cookie-Script popup design was not updated for quite a while and we decided it's time to make pop-up box look more modern. For that we have added an option Pop-up theme in Appearance tab. You can still choose old theme called Rounded, but all new items will have a more modern look by default(theme called Squared). 

You can still choose a type of popup you want to use in design option and adjust all colors in Colors tab (custom colors available only for paid customers).

GDPR is a regulation created for all websites that operate and collect user data within EU members states. It is not required to collect consents from visitors coming outside of European Union.

In order to meet our client demand, we have created an option to only target visitors coming from EU countries. This can be set when getting code of your item by clicking Use item button:

geo-eu

Click HTTP + GEO targeting button to see the code with included geo-targeting. Visitors from outside EU will not see cookie Popup in this case.

It requires you to update Cookie-Script code on your website if you are not using EU geo-targeting yet.
Geo-targeting does not work with self-hosted code since visitor IP is checked on Cookie-Script servers.
Geo-targeting is available in paid subscriptions.

GDPR rules are complicated and take quite some time to understand. This is why we have added special box next to most important settings to let you know if your settings are GDPR compliant. This is how it looks: 

gdpr-hints

Those notes are updated dynamically when you change your settings.
