Implementing CookieYes on Kartra

Last updated on June 16, 2021

CookieYes is a cloud-based application for cookie compliance. Using CookieYes, you can add a cookie consent notice to makes your website compliant with privacy laws like GDPR, ePrivacy Directive, and CCPA for cookies. We will guide you through the steps to implement CookieYes on a website made with the Kartra platform.

You can install CookieYes in just three steps: Sign up, copy installation code, and paste it on your website!

Let us see how we can set it up on Kartra.

Copy Installation Code From CookieYes

After you sign up on CookieYes, you will see a few options for the cookie consent banner template. After you choose the banner template, click Next Step.

Please note that for Kartra, you only need the URL of the CookieYes script file, i.e. “https://cdn-cookieyes.com/client_data/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.js”.

You can also get the code later from the CookieYes dashboard. Just click Get Script from the Site Settings page and copy the code.

To activate the CookieYes cookie banner on your website, you should paste the copied code to its source code.

After you log in to your Kartra account, click My Pages from the dashboard. Then, select a page of the site you are working on and click on Edit as shown:

Further CookieYes Configuration

You can customize the banner from the CookieYes dashboard after (or before) you activate the banner on the website. You can select or modify the content, color, language, or behavior of the banner. The dashboard will also give you an overview of the cookie scan result and the recent consent logs.
