Support » Plugin: Cookie Notice & Compliance for GDPR / CCPA » You’re out of your mind

  • I don’t even care what you introduced here – you deserve 1 start just for the full-screen ad on the Dashboard launch, clowns.

    I’m removing your plugin from every WordPress website I manage. You played yourself, congratulations. Hope you will get destroyed with 1-star reviews soon, and then really think about what you just did 😉

    Thanks for the review @visedfaq

    We introduced the Compliance upgrade with the (admittedly aggressive) full splash screen to attempt to communicate to Cookie Notice users that they are at risk of not complying with the latest clarifications to existing data privacy laws (as well as new laws coming into enforcement w/in next 18 months).

    These clarifications include ‘Prior Consent Rules’, which state that consent is invalid if cookies are set / sent prior to consent being registered. This means your site must have an Autoblocking script in the site header (can be done manually in the free version).

    Also included is a requirement to record ‘Proof-of-Consent’, which instructs data controllers (i.e. the business behind the website) to store consent receipts in a machine-readable standard. This means your site must maintain a database of records that can be exported in case of a regulatory audit.

    Cookie Compliance provides the Autoblocking and Consent Logs services (in addition to consent analytics and many more UI/UX customizations) for a monthly subscription because these services generate API and data storage costs.

    Regardless of the resulting 1-star reviews, we are confident that the majority of our users prefer to be informed of the increasing compliance risk to their business. If your customers are OK taking on these risks, then we wish you the best of luck in finding a free solution.

    @humanityco yeah, sure, you can tell me all day about how you “care” about your users, but let’s face the truth – the only real reason you did it was that you wanted us to pay for the subscription, that’s all. So don’t try to be an innocent sheep here, I know your corporate nature and intentions inside out.

    thanks for this eDeus – duly warned off… these guys don’t understand its better to earn a bit off a lot of users than a lot off only a few – and they’ll be losing my clients too thanks to this warning from you.
