WP Cookie Notice for GDPR, CCPA & ePrivacy Consent

Beskrivelse

The only WordPress plugin that helps you comply with the EU GDPR’s cookie consent and CCPA’s “Do Not Sell” Opt-Out regulations.

  • Get visitor consent for cookies using a fully customizable cookie consent bar on your website. Helps you comply with EU GDPR.
  • Display a fully customizable notice with a ‘Do Not Sell’ link on your website. Helps you comply with CCPA.
  • Supports WPML so your translation needs are covered.

This plugin is the closest that I have found to complying with all of the new regulation guidance and is the easiest to implement.
