    Hello. Thank you for the good plugin.

    I checked the cookies used by Integrations.
    The cookies currently used are “Google map, Youtube, Google Ads, reCaptcha, Contact Form7, SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle”.
    How are these cookies classified as “Functional”, “Statistics”, and “Marketing” in the cookie banner?

    Please tell me the specifications of the program.
    Thank you.

    Hi @dreative,

    In the wizard, under Cookies – Used Cookies you will find a list of these cookies, after a sync with cookiedatabase.org these will be categorized. In the list of cookies, you will find the categorization.

    How these are categorized is another matter, and is done on the service level. A short explanation can be found here; https://complianz.io/definitions/what-are-marketing-cookies/

    Based on the function of a cookie, that is used by the service, a purpose will be selected. As an example; https://cookiedatabase.org/cookie/google-ads/_gac_ua-2/

    Sometimes a service will use an API as well, like Google Maps and every request will receive an IP Address. As these are shared with a third-party, but Google does not explicitly state how they store and why they collect this data, it will get blocked until someone consents to the category ‘marketing’.

    In your case, I will presume Google Maps & YouTube are blocked until consent with a placeholder. reCaptcha will be blocked before consent, and consent is available wonder ContactForm7 (which is not blocked). This however is specific to GDPR, but if you have configured Complianz for another region, the settings will differ.

    I don’t know exactly how the SiteOrigin widgets bundle is configured, but I would presume it depends on the widget and the content,

    Let me know if you have any additional questions,

    regards Aert

    Hi Aert.

    Thank you for your polite explanation.
    Your explanation was very easy to understand.

    My client is to comply with the UK GDPR
    The Complianz plugin is set up on the client’s website.

    I’ve just explained to the client the types of cookies.
    Your explanation will probably understand the client as well.

    Also, if you have any questions, I will ask you a question on the forum.
    When the problem is resolved, mark it as resolved.

    Thank you.
