Cookie Whitelist – What cookies are allowed? How can I add more?

WordPress GDPR FAQ Viewed: 1317

Deprecated after Version 1.5. Cookies should be placed inside our new GDPR Services.

If you have enabled to use Cookie Whitelist & user agrees, all cookies will be allowed, that are on the Whitelist – not more! All other Cookies will be deleted. The whitelists are divided by Services, the complete list can be found below.

This function is very dangerous, because it could be, that not all Cookies for All Services are on the Whitelist, because they change them frequently. To add more, custom Cookies you should use our Filter as described here.

If Whitelist is disabled our plugin works the following:

  • All Cookies are blocked until General Consent is given
  • If user disables Analytics Service for example -> all cookies (except defaults) will be deleted
  • All other allowed services will set their cookies again (except Analytics, because script is disabled)

So in 99% you are good to go without the Whitelist enabled feature.

    i guess you’re german, aren’t you?

    Ich hab mir dein Plugin über codecanyon.net gekauft — klasse.

    Eine Sache noch ich hab’ leider das “close icon” gelöscht und weis nur noch, dass das mit fa-fa anfing. Ich hab schon bei Fontawesome geschaut aber das nicht mehr gefunden.
    Kannst Du das in Dein FAQ mitaufnehmen (und mir bitte per eMail antworten)?

    P.S. Eine generelle Frage, vielleicht hast Du darauf ja eine Antwort. Ich lebe in DE, meine Seite ist aber für den englischsprachigen Raum. Ich gehe davon aus, dass ich die Texte, die GDPR generiert hat auf englisch lassen kann, oder brauche ich auch noch zusätzlich die deutschen… mann, das kann einen schon ziemlich verrückt machen 😉
