Cookie Notification - how to add it to your website

Cookie Notification and Opt-In Configuration

By law you are required to inform your website visitors that you use cookies and get them to explicitly Opt-In (Consent) for any tracking cookies. The TRUENDO Privacy Panel allows your website visitors to Opt-In and Opt-Out at any time. Cookies can be divided into 4 major categories:

  • Necessary
  • Preferences
  • Statistics (e.g Google Analytics)
  • Marketing (e.g Facebook Pixel)

Setting cookies that you use/need for your core functionality falls under necessary and preference cookies for which you do not need explicit consent. All other cookies you set, fall in one of the other categories which require consent (Opt-In). With the TRUENDO Privacy Panel integrated to your website, the user will be informed about cookies via a prompt and will be given the possibility to Consent to all cookies as well as manage cookie preferences in a user-friendly manor.

The settings can be managed at any time which TRUENDO handles for you. Via the cookie setting in the Privacy Panel a user can enable or disable a specific cookie category (except the necessary and preference category). When a user changes their settings, the TRUENDO Privacy Panel looks for all cookie scripts belonging to a specific category and automatically adjusts the script according to the user’s settings. For TRUENDO to be able to determine which script sets which type of cookie, you have to make a few minor adjustments to the scripts on your website:

Step 1:

Search for script-tags in the source code of your website which set cookies. Example: If you find the following, it means you are using google analytics which needs a explicit consent before being executed:

<!– Global Site Tag (gtag.js) – Google Analytics –>
<script async src=""></script>
window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [ ];
function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
gtag('js', new Date ( ) );
gtag('config', 'GA_TRACKING_ID');

Step 2:

The above script would need to be adjusted as follows:

<!– Global Site Tag (gtag.js) – Google Analytics –>
<script type="text/plain" data-trucookiecontrol="statistics" async src=""></script>
<script type="text/plain" data-trucookiecontrol="statistics">
window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [ ];
function gtag () {dataLayer.push(arguments);}
gtag('js', new Date());
gtag('config', 'GA_TRACKING_ID');

The setting of the type="text/plain" prohibits the underlaying code from being executed in the first place, so no cookie can or will be set when the visitor first arrives. If the user either accepts the setting of cookies or modifies their preferences, TRUENDO will automatically change the “script type” to "javascript/text" or back to "text/plain". That way the user can dynamically OPT-IN or OPT-OUT of a specific cookie category at any time. For all script tags that set cookies on your website you’ll need to follow the approach shown above.

For “Statistics” you need to use the following: data-trucookiecontrol="statistics"
For “Marketing” you need to use the following: data-trucookiecontrol="marketing"

After updating your website source code as described above you’re good to go and have made a big step forward in user-friendly data protection compliance!
