Cookie Code

Cookie Code

To comply with the European Cookie Directive you will need to add a third party script code to each website you launch.

An explanation of this law can be found here - note this was adopted into UK Law as well.

By adding a cookie bar, your site visitors will be warned that your site uses and stores cookies on their browser in order to:

a) operate as an ecommerce site (saving baskets, remembering login information etc)
b) gather anonymous browsing information (e.g. Google Analytics, Hotjar etc)
c) provide other functions such as chat features, advertising and more

To add the code for a cookie warning popup, take a look at the following available (free) scripts:

Adding the Code

Simple scripts can be added via the Marketing page on each Sales Channel
Javascript code can be added to your site template via the custom.js snippet, or added as a new file via the Edit Template - New File option.

You should have a relevant Privacy Policy page live on your website. You may need to customise the code to link to your Privacy Policy.
