1 Introduction to Cookie Control V8
This is the documentation for the latest version 8 of Cookie Control. If you are looking for the v7 documentation, it can be found here.
The GDPR has a global reach, meaning all EU states and sites receiving EU visitors should seek user consent in the same way : with an explicit opt in action. With this in mind, Cookie Control v8 has been redesigned to run exclusively in what was previously known as "explicit mode". Alternative consent models ("Information only" and "Implied Consent") are no longer available, as they do not comply with the new legislation.
Before detailing what Cookie Control can do; we feel it is important to go through the limitations so that you can assess whether or not it is right for you.
Second, we cannot know all the ways that your site may set cookies, and require you to accurately set your own configuration. Should you do this, Cookie Control will provide users with an accessible means of explicitly granting, and revoking consent.
