2. Enable the cookie bar for specific regions?

The integration of a cookie bar into your online store is an essential step towards compliance with privacy regulations, and it's important to tailor its visibility according to the regions where your business operates.

With the cookie bar now successfully implemented on your website, your next step is to configure it to display for the appropriate geographic locations.

This can be easily accomplished through the "Enable For Specific Regions" feature, which you'll find within the General tab of your settings.

As of the moment, the available regions for which the cookie bar can be enabled separately are the following:

EU/EEA + UK (GDPR) - This option includes the following countries from the EU + EEA: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden
Brazil (LGPD)
California Visitors (CCPA-CPRA)
Virginia (VCDPA)
Colorado (CPA)
Connecticut (CTDPA)
Utah (UCPA)
Canada (PIPEDA)
Enable for Japan (APPI)
Enable For All Countries (If you need the cookie bar to be shown globally).

It's crucial to fine-tune these settings because different regions have varying legal requirements regarding the use of cookies and online tracking. For example, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has strict guidelines that businesses must adhere to. By ensuring that the cookie bar appears for visitors from the regions you serve, you not only show respect for user privacy but also safeguard your business against potential legal issues.

To assist you in configuring these settings, a video guide is available for you to watch. This guide provides a comprehensive overview of the options within the "Enable For Specific Regions" setting. By watching this video, you'll gain a clearer understanding of how to customize the cookie bar for different regions effectively, ensuring that your store complies with the relevant regulations and that user experience remains unaffected for customers from areas where such compliance isn't necessary.



Remember, staying informed and compliant is not just about following the law; it's also about building trust with your customers. When visitors see that you take privacy seriously, they're more likely to feel secure and become repeat customers. So, take advantage of the resources provided, like the video guide, to make sure you're fully leveraging the capabilities of your cookie bar.
