5. Set Initial Cookie Block Settings

Managing cookies effectively is a vital aspect of ensuring your online store is compliant with various data protection regulations. When a new visitor lands on your page, you have the power to determine which cookies are active by default and which are not.

This initial cookie configuration plays a crucial role in balancing the customer experience with privacy concerns.

To configure your Cookie Bar and Preferences Popup according to your specific needs, here's a brief guide:

Log into your store’s backend and navigate to the app.
Find the section dedicated to cookie settings – often under a tab Cookies Management
Look for the Initial State Of The Cookie Bar section in the Cookie Bar behavior tab
The control you have over these cookies can significantly impact your store's compliance and the user experience. For instance, you might choose to:

Keep all cookies active until the visitor opts out.
Block analytics cookies until consent is given.
Block marketing cookies to prevent tracking before opt-in.
Block functionality cookies that may not be essential for the website's operation.
