Connecting CookieBot to your website

To ensure that your website is GDPR and CCPA-compliant, you need to get your site visitors’ consent to collect their data. CookieBot is a Consent Management Platform (CMP) that provides the service that helps ensure you have your site visitors’ consent before you make use of cookies and any other possible online trackers.

This integration is available for all Yola users for free.

Note: Make sure you’ve published your website before connecting the service so that CookieBot could scan your site properly. 

Connecting CookieBot to your website

To connect CookieBot to your Sitebuilder+ website, follow these steps:

  1. In the Sitebuilder, click the Menu icon in the top left corner and then click Settings.

After you publish your website, your visitors will start getting the consent cookie banner.

Note: Connecting this integration will automatically disable the display of Yola’s basic Cookie banner on your website. It might take up to 24 hours for the scan to get finished completely after you add the domain name(s). 

GDPR and CCPA compliance

To make your cookie consent banner compliant with both GDPR and CCPA, you need to configure it correctly. Follow the instructions from  the dedicated CookieBot articles:

Also, you can complement the widget with the cookie declaration to comply with these key parts of GDPR art. 7(3): "The data subject shall have the right to withdraw his or her consent at any time" and "It shall be as easy to withdraw as to give consent."

Read our dedicated article about cookie declaration.
