Setting your store's compliance

In order to have all the settings in the store and our app, to ensure your store's compliance, we would recommend the following:

1. Navigate to your Shopify Admin > Settings > Customer Privacy >and in Cookie banner select which regions you wish the data for your visitors to be collected after they consent for this via the Cookie bar in your store.

Once you access the Cookie banner section you will have the option to Edit this list, and select the Recommended EU+EEA countries and add more locations there if needed, in which you want the data to be Collected after consent.



If you have any questions on this or have difficulties setting the option, please refer to the following article: Customer Privacy section updates in Shopify

​2. In addition to that, if you have any tracking services set from the Preferences section in your Shopify Admin, it would be best to check the option for "Use Enhanced Ecommerce" for all of them so they can be blocked until consent via the cookie bar is given by the visitor, as shown below:



​3. Change the initial state of the cookie groups in the app settings from the Cookie Bar tab > Cookie Bar Behavior > Initial State Of The Cookie Bar for all the cookie groups to be blocked initially, as shown below:



4. If you have any Google, Facebook or other Tracking services added via separate scripts in the theme files, that are also activating before the visitor gives consent and it would be best to check our Setup Guide, point "6. How to add blocking of tracking services: Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel, etc..?"

5. Last but not least, If you want the "Accept" button to accept all cookies when it is clicked, please set the option "Regard the Initial State Of The Cookie Bar for the 'Accept' button" located in the Cookie Bar tab > Cookie Bar Behavior to No.



In addition to that, please make sure that your Privacy Policy page is linked to the Cookie bar in your store. You can do this from the Cookie Bar tab > Cookie Bar Content > Privacy Policy Link, as shown below:



In need of any assistance with the setup, do not hesitate to drop us a line at support@consentmo.com or via our Live chat.
