NEW: complies with new Spanish regulations on cookie consent (in force since January 11, 2024)

Advanced Cookie Banner is THE ONLY module for PrestaShop compliant with the latest regulations, such as:

  • the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) of May 2018, which makes it mandatory to collect the informed consent of visitors regarding the installation of cookies on their browser
  • the guidelines and the recommendation of the CNIL of October 2020 regarding the use of cookies and other tracers (in force since March 2021)
  • the new AEPD (Spanish Data Protection Agency) guidelines on cookie consent (in force since January 2024)
  • etc…

We continually update the module as new laws are passed. For example, it will be compliant with the European ePrivacy (ePR) regulation on the protection of personal data when it comes into force (an update to a major version of the module will be required).

Cookie banner compliant with the latest European legislation

 

In accordance with Google's official interstitial guidelines, it has been fully developed to comply with the law while providing the best possible user experience. Not only does the module allow you to display a request for authorization to set cookies, but it goes much further: your visitors have the possibility, in a very simple and quick way:

  • to accept or refuse in 1 click all cookies
  • to choose the type of cookies (statistics and/or marketing) which they authorize the installation
  • to personalize their choice by selecting one by one the modules for which they authorize the installation of cookies

This granularity of consent gives them full autonomy, which should increase their satisfaction and therefore your reputation. Modules whose visitors have refused the installation of cookies on their terminal will be blocked in order to respect their wishes.

 


An easy configuration and a module technically designed without overrides

In practice, back-office side, the module offers you to sort the modules between those which don't need user consent to run and those that require it before being activated. For these latter, you can separate them into two types of cookies: those for statistical purposes and those for marketing ones. When a visitor arrives on your site, he or she has the option of accepting one of the two types of modules, both, neither, or of customizing the selection of modules individually.

Optimized for mobile, Advanced Cookie Banner will allow you to bring your shop into compliance whatever the device (computer, smartphone, tablet, ...), the operating system or the browser used.

Behind this "cookie blocker" feature, there is a technical challenge... Indeed, all modules that offer this feature have chosen the easiest way, and modify the PrestaShop's default behavior by installing an override in the core of your shop. But, overrides can be more problematic than the solution they are supposed to give you.
This is why, we choose with our "Advanced Cookie Banner" module, not to use any overrides. We offer you a reliable and robust module.

Features

Compliance with the European directive on cookies

  • Displays a message informing the user about the use of cookies
  • Includes the default warning messages translated into 24 languages
  • Possibility of customizing the warning message
  • Prevents back-office selected modules from cookies installation until the user expresses his choice
  • Possibility for the visitor:
    • to accept or refuse all cookies in one click
    • to accept only the cookies for statistical analysis purposes or only those for marketing purposes
    • to select in detail the modules for which he want to authorize cookies
  • Once the banner is closed, the module doesn't enable the modules whose cookies installation has been explicitly refused by the user.
  • Allows you to add a link to the CMS page of your choice, giving, among other things, more information about your cookie policy
  • The module allows you to keep a history of the consents as proof in case of control of the CNIL (proof of consent can be exported in json or CSV format)
  • The visitor can easily withdraw his consent at any time through a dedicated link (in the footer or in his customer account if he has one)
  • No design difference between accept and refuse buttons (to comply with European legislation)

Concerned about user's experience

  • Initially designed for mobiles
  • The consent buttons have a size which matches a finger size

Acceptance by clicking a button

  • Display of a banner (or interstitial on mobile) with information text, checkboxes to specify the modules (or type of modules) authorized to set cookies, and approval or refusal buttons
  • Compliant with CNIL and AEPD directives: display of 3 clear buttons allowing in one action to accept or refuse all cookies, or to choose only marketing or statistical cookies. There's also a link to a configuration table for customizing the choice of modules authorized to set cookies, on an individual basis.
  • In order to comply the law, the other pages consultation isn't considered as a form of consent, and this will not unblock the modules submitted for approval by the user
  • Clicking on one of the accept/refuse buttons will trigger the refresh of the current page, the removal of the banner, and the immediate placement of cookies accepted by the user. Modules whose cookies installation has been refused by the user remain blocked.

Respect of your site's SEO

"Advanced Cookie Banner" detects the passage of search engine crawlers, such as Google, on your site and, in this case, will neither display the banner nor block the modules. Your site will be properly explored and there will be no impact on your SEO.

  • Simulation Mode, allowing merchant to customize the banner without disturbing its customers

Technical specifications

  • Multilingual
