Cookie Consent (GDPR) for Magento 2
- Choose a cookie bar style and customize the design
- Arrange cookies into obligatory and optional categories
- Collect and filter all cookie consents from registered and guest users
- Block third-party cookies
If you run a website within the European Economic Area territory or if your users are EEA residents, you must comply with the EU Cookie Law. If you don’t, you risk receiving enforcement requests or administrative fines resulting in poor customer loyalty.
The Magento 2 cookie notice extension ensures you are fully compliant with Cookie Legislation requirements to avoid penalties for breaching the EU Cookie Law. It allows you to implement a detailed cookie bar to enhance data protection, better your customers’ user experience, and manage categories’.
WHAT IS EU COOKIE LAW AND HOW TO COMPLY WITH IT
The EU Cookie Law is a part of a privacy legislation outlining what users are allowed to do with your digital data. It is designed to protect online privacy by telling users how the information about them is used and obtaining their consent prior to browsing to ensure this.
According to the Cookie Legislation, some cookies do not require getting customers’ consent prior to their usage. These are the obligatory or ‘strictly necessary’ cookies that are required for optimal site functionality. All other cookies require consent before one can process them. The cornerstone is to detect which cookies are essential — unless you surely know they are the essential ones, you risk facing penalties for non-compliance.
To comply with EU Cookie Legislation, 3 actions from EU website owners are required:
- Provide detailed information on how cookie data will be used
What benefits do you get for your store
Avoid penalties for breaching Cookie Legislation by observing its principles
Increase customer loyalty and retention by providing complete cookie info
Strengthen data privacy and security by following documentation requirements
Collect Cookies at the First Interaction
To ensure customers provide their consent, an informative and easy to manage cookie popup in Magento 2 appears. The extension has 3 available cookie bars allowing you to choose the most suitable one for your store and make cookie information clear. Any bar displays require cookie data and the options to allow all the cookies or particular ones only.
NEW: Let your customers forbid the processing of all non-essential cookies using the ‘Decline’ button. Thus, shoppers can reject the collection of all cookies at once without disabling each group separately. Show or hide the button according to your business needs on any bar type.
Sidebar with toggles: display cookie groups and their descriptions to provide selective compliance
Cookie pop-up: show a compact popup with buttons in the center of the page
Classic bar: convenient and familiar placement to allow users to see the cookie bar at the top of the page or at the footer
Customization for any bar: change the color of each pop-up element to match your store branding
Now you can show a cookie popup for the customers from particular countries only. Automatically detect users' locations and limit cookie settings visibility to get relevant consents.
Cover specific legislation requirements
Before giving consent, shoppers should have an opportunity to check what data about them is being collected and how it will be used. With our detailed cookie descriptions, customers are more likely to provide their consent as well as consider your online store to be trustworthy. In our Magento 2 module, we touch on the cookie notice which includes the necessary data and explain how it lets visitors find the information they need without redirecting them to other pages of your site.
The law obliges store owners to retain all documentation concerning customers’ consent and manage appropriately Moreover, the regulation strongly recommends the timely updating of cookies. With the Magento 2 Cookie (GDPR) extension, all management issues are easy and seamless to overcome.
Advanced cookie bar options
Customize Cookie Groups position
Use the ‘Sort Order’ field during the cookie groups configuration to adjust the order for groups display in the cookie bar. Place the essential cookie group higher or lower depending on preference, and draw customers’ attention to any other group to obtain more consents.
NEW | Replace IP addresses for debug mode
Hide the bar if no decision was taken
In some cases, shoppers prefer just to ignore the bar. You are free to hide the bar from the same customer on new pages if no decision concerning cookie usage was taken. Thus, the shopper will be less distracted from purchasing.
NEW | Inform users about the changes in cookies
When you make any changes in cookies or cookie groups, the Magento 2 cookie manager will reappear with actual information. Customers will see a cookie bar again if you change:
- cookie group information or cookie information (including description, lifetime, provider, etc .);
- the statuses of particular cookies and cookie groups;
- cookies that have been reassigned between groups.
NEW | Block 3rd-party cookies
Show cookie bar according to location
You can now show a cookie popup for customers from particular countries only, e.g. to those that are affected by GDPR. The extension automatically detects visitors’ location and limits cookie settings visibility. Thus, allowing you to collect only relevant consents without impacting shoppers from other countries.
