Why do you need a cookie banner on your website? The simple answer is...
- you communicate your privacy notice to your visitors/customers;
- you are transparent with what data you collect and provide an option to change personal settings;
- you block cookies and trackers from being injected before you have received the explicit consent (GDPR);
Let us show you here how to block cookies and services on your domain using Secure Privacy to obtain GDPR/CCPA/LGPD compliance with a few simple steps to start with -
Perform a website rescan
Once you have installed Secure Privacy and finish adding services to your domain, please perform a "website rescan" to detect the cookies that are being placed on your visitors' devices.
The next step is to classify your services according to your business/legal needs.
The last step - check/enable "automatic blocking" switch on the enabled solution's "Settings" page.
Make sure the switch is GREEN (enabled) for the "Automatic blocking", as for other services/categories - the general recommendation here is to uncheck (make them GREY) for all categories/services except for the "essential". This is to satisfy the explicit granular given consent GDPR requirement, we have it more in the article explained here.
Congratulations! In most use-cases this will be sufficient to have automated cookie blocking added to your website!
Additionally, you can also setup a cookie declaration on your website and Data Subject Access Request form (DSAR for short) - to convey your compliance and privacy consciousness to your customers as well.
