Turn on cookie/privacy policy pop-up

  • Updated

Turn on the Cookie/Privacy Policy pop-up for new site customers to review and accept your cookie and/or privacy policy, without having to build a pop-up from scratch. Insert pop-up content that meets applicable compliance and privacy laws. For example, include an explanation of what information you are collecting and how you use it, or send customers to a page that describes the cookies and how to enable/disable them appropriately.

This pop-up comes with an Accept Cookies button that closes the pop-up and sets the cookie when customers click it. The pop-up will not show on other site pages once the cookie is set. There is also a close button on the pop-up that does not set the cookie when customers click it, so the pop-up will continue to appear on other site pages.
