Getting Started

Info: Before we jump into creating your cookie policy, we want to make sure your logged into your control panel. Please see our guide below if you’re having issues locating this.

Info: If you haven’t read our introduction guide, I would recommend going through it to ensure your aware of what is needed:

Once you are logged in and looking at your overview page you will need to click onto ‘Configure’ located under Cookie Solution.

Territorial Scope

The configurator will prompt you to select your location and the location of your users to set the territorial range of your site/app.

Choose from predefined options or create a custom list of countries.

Once you’ve made your selections, click on ‘Confirm and Proceed’.

Compliance Settings

Our configurator preselects compliance settings based on your choices, but you can still adjust them by clicking on Continue and toggling the switches.

Our system provides explanations and suggestions to ensure compliance based on your previous choices.

Make sure to enable GDPR if you or your users are in Europe to avoid compliance issues.

You can modify any setting by clicking on ‘EDIT’ at the bottom of each box.

Once you are happy with what you have chosen you will then need to click on ‘confirm and proceed’.

In this section, you can customize the appearance and graphic elements of your cookie banner/consent banner.

Any changes you make will be instantly shown in the preview area on the right side of the page.

Click on ‘EDIT’ at the bottom of each box to manage and customize different style elements.

Change banner visuals, such as colors and themes, and customize the header with your brand colors and logo using the Theme configuration.

Remove the iubenda branding in the Cookie Policy and Consent Preferences modals with the White label option. (For more information on this, contact our Sales team on 01 5255768)

Customize the privacy widget and its position or provide a link for users to access and edit their privacy preferences easily.
