Support » Plugin: Cookie Notice & Compliance for GDPR / CCPA » “Revoke Cookies”.. does what exactly?

  • So you can revoke cookies using [cookies_revoke] shortcode.

    This causes the banner to reappear like the first time you visit the site (as expected).

    My confusion is because the banner says “We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it.”

    So… it’s going to store cookies (because you’re using the site) anyway? So what does revoking consent do?

    GDPR states consent cannot be assumed, so users need to give “positive” consent by clicking the accept button. Cookies should not be stored until that is given.

    This plugin feels like it’s just a banner for the sake of it. The site uses cookies and the banner is just informing you. There is no consent, no accepting, rejecting or revoking.

    Does anyone have any insights?

  • I believe you are misunderstanding the usage of this plugin. It doesn’t automatically just fix gdpr for you or does anything for that matter. You have to configure it manually.

    Scripts that are not allowed according to gdpr (such as google analytics) need to be added to head or body script field in the cookie notice plugin settings page. Those won’t be loaded untill the user clicks accept. Then you need to toggle refuse cookies option, so the user can dismiss the notice without accepting cookies. Then the revoke consent option comes in, which reshows the options to choose and allows the user to change his mind.

    P. S. It is also up to you to disable third party recording plugins (such as jetpack or most poll plugins)
