Enable multilingual cookie banner

If you have a multilingual website and want to display the cookie banner in multiple languages, you can use the auto-translation feature. 

If your website is in a language other than English and you want to display a cookie banner in that language, you can change your default banner language. 

Schedule cookie scanning

You should ensure that your cookie list is up-to-date so that your cookie banner has accurate information about the cookies used on your website.

We suggest that you automate your website scanning in monthly intervals. From the top navigation bar, click on More > Site Settings > Schedule Cookie Scan. You can choose Monthly, Select Day and set the Time for your scans.

If you have password-protected sections on your website, we recommend that you scan for cookies behind these sections as well. To access the Scan behind login feature (available only on the Ultimate plan) reach out to support@cookieyes.com.

Manage cookie list

CookieYes by default auto-blocks third-party cookie scripts until consent is provided by the visitor, as required by GDPR. However, we recommend you check for ‘Other’ cookies (unclassified cookies) to ensure that these cookies are appropriately handled.

You can view your updated cookie list and scan history under the Cookie Manager tab. You can then choose to implement cookie blocking manually for relevant cookies.

Generate a cookie policy

A detailed cookie policy is important so that your website provides full disclosure to your visitors. You can generate a cookie policy with a complete cookie list using CookieYes. From the top navigation bar, click on More > Cookie Policy Generator. Your cookie policy is generated instantly and you can customize the text to suit your needs. You can then simply copy-paste it to your website and publish your cookie policy page.

You can also link the cookie policy page on your cookie banner. Head to Cookie Banner > Content > Cookie Notice > “Read More” link (enable) > URL and enter the URL of your cookie policy.

Integrate with Google Consent Mode

If you want to continue monitoring and measuring website analytics in a legally compliant way, you can use Google Consent Mode. CookieYes can be easily integrated with Google Consent Mode and will allow you to adjust how Google tags and scripts behave on your website based on your visitor’s consent status.

Access the consent log for proof

CookieYes logs all the consent given by your site visitors in the Consent Log. You may use this log to demonstrate your proof of consent in case of any regulatory audits.  To download your consent log, from the top navigation bar, click on Consent Log > Export as CSV.
