  2. General Information & Updates

Digital Markets Act Update | March 6th 2024

If you do not currently have a consent management platform on your website, you must get one now. We recommend https://www.cookiebot.com/ for ease of use and low costs. If you need help with your setup please get in touch with our team for assistance. 
If you already have a consent management platform on your website, please audit your settings to ensure your set up is compliant.
If you are using Cookiebot, these are the settings you will need to check:
  • The consent method must be set to "explicit", i.e. a user has to actively make a choice on the cookie banner. Implicit consent is not compliant. 
  • If you are running remarketing or behavioral targeting on any platforms, the message on your cookie banner must inform of that. This information cannot be hidden. Here is a sample cookie message which has been approved by Google:

We use cookies to personalise content and ads, to provide social media features, and to analyse our traffic. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners who may combine it with other information that you’ve provided to them or that they’ve collected from your use of their services.

  • Opt-in / Opt-out settings must be set to Multilevel or Inline Multilevel with buttons "reject all / Selection / Allow All". You can pre-check all boxes on this version of the banner, making Allow Selection and Allow All equivalent options while also giving the visitor an option to edit their consent. Accept/Decline or OK are not compliant options. 


Here is an example of a compliant cookie banners:
