“This is an excellent plugin to help you with your GDPR compliance. It is highly customisable and has a lot of different features. I like how it provides you with a short code to tabulate your cookies on to any page of your website and how that table updates automatically when you add new ones. The support from Mark and his team is also exceptional.” – Chris Scott, Brand That Name Limited, UK

How to make your Cookie usage GDPR compliant?
The users must have a choice. The choice to consent to the cookie usage on the website; to withdraw the consent at any time; to delete any user data so recorded by the cookie usage that was once consented.
This means that you should take the accountability for the user data that will be shared with the third party services obtained by the cookies used in the website. In view of the same we can ensure a few things that would make your life easier.
Accountability for the user data – Since the onus is on you for sharing user data with the third parties it is important to be well informed as to what kind of cookies you are using in the website.
Definite user consent – It is important to obtain a definite user consent from the user prior to enabling the respective cookies.
Cookie categorization – Categorise your Cookies as ‘Necessary’ ( strictly necessary for providing an “information society service” requested by the user) and ‘Non-Necessary’ (cookies used for analytical purposes or cookies used by first party or third party such as advertisers). Only set Necessary cookies before getting user consent. Set Non-necessary cookies only after getting user consent.
Consent audit log – All user consents should be stored securely so that they can be produced should there be a need in future.
Consent withdrawal – Users must be able to withdraw their consent at any given point.
NOTE: INSTALLING THIS PLUGIN ALONE DOES NOT MAKE YOUR SITE GDPR COMPLIANT. SINCE EACH SITE USES DIFFERENT COOKIES, YOU MAY NEED TO ENSURE YOU HAVE NECESSARY CONFIGURATIONS IN PLACE.
