Cookies are files in which all data from visitors is stored. The government regulation says that from 1.1. 2022 it is necessary to have information on the processing of this data on your website. These include, in particular, an analytical cookie (traffic analysis), a marketing cookie (display of preferential advertising) or also the required information from visitors (e-mail, name, number, ..) or functional cookies. If we obtain such information through certain plugins, it is necessary to have your consent on your website to process these files. Failure to comply with this law can lead to unpleasant problems. Here we will talk about how to create a GDPR cookie bar completely free of charge and with the desired features.
All you have to do to meet this requirement is to install one of the listed plugins on your WordPress site. Once activated, the cookie bar should appear on all subpages of the site automatically until it is approved or rejected. It is also important to mention that from the new year it is also necessary to be able to refuse the processing of this information. In this case, for example, preferential advertising will not be displayed, and we will also not find out anything about the visitor's visit and his movement on the site. Fortunately, in most cases, people are happy to provide this data. It is important from the point of view of the website itself to see how the website is doing or not.
