How do I add Cookie Consent to my website?

Cookie Consent by Insites is a free, customisable Cookie Consent pop-up that you can build yourself in only a few minutes.

In this Help Guide we will be looking at how to add their Cookie Consent Code to your Create website.

 

Getting the Cookie Consent Code

1. Go to https://cookieconsent.insites.com/ and click ‘Download’

Cookie Consent Main

 

2. You are now able to customise your Cookie Consent message - at the bottom of the screen you are able to see a preview of your work.

Cookie Consent Configure

 

3. The first step is to choose the position of the Cookie Consent. As you choose between the options, you will see the banner change to reflect this.

4. You can then customise and preview the layout of your Cookie Consent.

5. The next option gives you the opportunity to choose the colour scheme of your Cookie Consent. You can either choose from one of their pre-set templates or choose your own colours by adding the Hex Code for your required colour.

6. The next option gives you the opportunity to change the ‘Learn More’ link to a URL of your own. We recommend that you choose the ‘Link to your own policy’ option and then copy in a URL from your website that links to your Privacy Policy or Terms & Conditions.

7. When choosing the ‘Compliance Type’ we recommend that you use their ‘Just tell users that we use cookies’ option. The advanced options are currently unavailable with our platform but If you do want to add opt-out or opt-in functionality to your site, please contact your Account Manager.

8. With the final option, you can change the text of the Cookie Consent. Clicking into the box will allow you to automatically overwrite the content already in place.
