Feature Friday Replay: Cookie Notice Banner
Catch the replay from Feature Friday on March 24. Kindra shows you how to implement the new Cookie Banner tool we pushed out to all Dirigible websites.
Thank you so much for coming to today’s Feature Friday. Today we’re going to talk about a new feature that we’ve pushed up to all of our Dirigible websites, it’s called GDPR.
Although it’s called GDPR that’s more of a signpost for where we’re going to end up. Using this tool, in its current state, will not ensure GDPR compliance, and indeed any single cookie Banner or GDPR Plugin won’t get you there. You need to complete quite a few tasks off of your site in order to ensure compliance, and that’s a topic for another time.
However if you are mostly serving people within the United States (outside of California) this Cookie Notice Banner called GDPR will get you most of the way there!
So without any further ado I’m going to show you how to enable it on your Dirigible site and how to set it up so that you can get started communicating your privacy practices and policies to your users. All right let’s dive in. I am at our handy dandy demo.mydirigible.com website and you can see I’m already logged in. There’s the stripe at the top.
First, I’ll go to customize, scroll down to GDPR, choose settings and the first thing that I will do is enable it, and that makes it pop up right here.
Under settings you can change the layout so right now it’s centered I can swap it over to the corner there’s an option to add a shadow or remove it you can see right there because I have the background set to white it kind of blends in so I’m going to put the shadow back on but you can also change the background to any of your site colors.
I might not really want my cookie notice or GDPR notice to stick out so I might leave it white; if I wanted to draw more attention to it I could use a really bright color from my color palette and reverse the print or use black. This is you know, how pretty much everything on your dirigible website already works so you should be familiar with the controls.
As you can see, the sky’s really the limit any sort of HTML that you want to put in here is available to you and that’s really nice because so often when you are using a third-party plug-in for banners cookie banners GDPR compliance or anything like that, you’re getting a a lot of extraneous code, extraneous styles and you have to work harder to make your cookie notice fit in with your site if you’re using this Dirigible one all of that comes along for free.
If you have any questions about how to set up this GDPR feature on your website please don’t hesitate to get in touch you can find us at support.mydirigible.com you can also join our private Facebook group and I will throw that link somewhere on the screen or in the show notes and you should also check out community.mydirigible.com which is a forum for Dirigible website users to learn and help each other thanks for coming and I’ll see you next week at Feature Friday!
