    Default GDPR Cookies

    Is anyone implementing a cookie opt-in message for their site? Looking at the new GDPR rules visitors have to confirm that they want cookies and then be given the option to turn them off?? Does any one know if BP are working on something?

    You can't turn most cookies off or your site won't work as an ecommerce site (same for all, not just BP) see the post

    GDPR just requires you advise customers of what they are/do, add to privacy policy.

    we have a cookie notice which applies to first time visitors only, links to our privacy policy.

    Hi Graham,

    I've just added a first-time visitor pop-up, I guess that is all we can do.

    Just to let you know, your cookie message did not show when I visited your site (I also deleted all cookies and tried it again - same result) ??

    Thanks

    We use this free one from Insites. You just customize the look/wording and then put the script into the Head Section on the Template Editor within Bluepark.

    Ignoring the GDPR this acceptance of cookies has been going on for the last 4 or 5 years and a majority of us have ignored it and we will continue to do so. It's a complete load of rubbish and the average shopper has not got a clue what it means. IMHO it's a complete waste of time even bothering implementing it.

    I Agree and I have avoided it so far as I didn't want to distract visitors from thier reason for visiting. But I don't think it's such a distraction now as so may websites do it, I know I just click the OK button without even reading the message now when visiting a site.

    Plus if it's so easy to set up we may as well have it. It's one less thing we can be pulled up on.

    That may well be the case and the ICO may well not have too much time to care too much about small businesses, BUT some of us among our customers will find the one that loves rules and will look for what data is held including cookies!

    Anyway its not difficult to put a statement on your site..

    I was reading this yesterday: https://digiday.com/wp-content/uploa...R-download.pdf

    It says on page 4

    "WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
    It will free European Union countries from having to run annoying on-site banners that ask visitorsfor consent to use cookies for tracking. Instead, website users will have to specify their consentsettings within their browser settings, essentially making browsers the gatekeepers, and behavioraladvertising will be directly affected. "
    I've not yet come across that info elsewhere but it's an interesting opinion.

    BP seem to be indicating they will be adding this feature:

    "Agreeing to the use of cookies on a website has been around for a few years now, but as ecommerce sites cannot work without cookies, implied consent was appropriate for such sites. However, under GDPR, this is no longer the case, particularly if you use cookies for collecting analytical data such as sales statistics. Consent must be given through a clear action, such as clicking on a button or ticking a box. As a result, a Cookie Consent pop-up feature will be made available for all sites."
    https://www.bluepark.co.uk/blog/gdpr-our-guide-to-compliance.html

    Does anybody know how to set it up?

    No we will have to wait until BP release it. If you canít wait there are plenty of 3rd party scripts out there like https://silktide.com/tools/cookie-consent/download/

    Yes I will wait to use the BP one when it comes through, assuming they are definitely doing one.

    The cookie consent feature will be available to switch on before the May 25th deadline.

    I'm struggling to find where it says under GDPR that consent is required for Cookies. The ICO website doesn't seem to mention it in their GDPR section.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Also, how would I find out what cookies my site uses? The ICO page gives specifics (https://ico.org.uk/global/cookies/) but I wouldn't know where to start.
