The GDPR Cookie Consent plugin will assist you in making your website GDPR compliant. It also support for cookie compliance in accordance with The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) which is a state statute intended to enhance privacy rights and consumer protection for residents of California. The plugin comes with a host of features some of which are listed below.
The plugin will enable a notice with Accept and Reject options. The cookies are not rendered by default and only upon user consent. (The cookie value will be set to ‘null’ by default; it takes a value ‘yes’ when the user clicks ‘Accept’ and ‘no’ upon ‘Reject’. Your developer can check this value to set a cookie accordingly.)
This plugin adds a subtle cookie banner to your website either in the header or footer so you can show your compliance status regarding the new GDPR law.
You can fully customise the cookie notice style so it blends with your existing website: change the colours, fonts, styles, the position on the page and even how it behaves when you click “Accept”.
You can choose to make the cookie notice bar disappear after a few seconds (completely configurable) or to accept on scroll (an option available under Italian law).
It also has a Cookie Audit module so you can easily show what cookies your site uses and display them neatly in a table on your Privacy & Cookies Policy page.
The plugin can be configured to have a CCPA ‘Do Not Sell My Personal Information’ control to the cookie notice.
viewed_cookie_policy – Is the primary cookie that records the user consent for the usage of the cookies upon accept and reject. It doesn’t track any personal data and is set only upon user action(accept/reject).
cookielawinfo-checkbox-necessary/cookielawinfo-checkbox-non-necessary – Records the default button state of the corresponding category. It works only in coordination with the primary cookie.
CookieLawInfoConsent – Records the default button state of the corresponding category & the status of CCPA. It works only in coordination with the primary cookie.
The plugin supports WPML and qTranslate so your translation needs are covered.

A more realistic approach for WordPress website owners is to move the scripts that place cookies( for eg:, Google Analytics tracking code) to the GDPR Cookie Consent plugin(within non-necessary cookie category) and then allow visitors to control it by giving consent.
No. Only the ‘necessary’ cookies will be loaded till the user gives consent.
We provide you the facility to add cookies and the corresponding scripts (This works if the cookies are placed when a script is added to the site header or footer as in the case of Google analytics, Hotjar etc.)based on category. In our premium version, visitors can reject the category of cookies they don’t want to get installed. In such cases, all cookies in that category will be blocked for the user. In the free version, you can still block the scripts but doesn’t have category level granularity.
But if another plugin adds scripts or places a cookie then we do not have any control. We have no way of knowing what plugins you use or how they work, so blocking/deleting cookies on a WordPress website/blog would possibly/probably break your site. Larger websites with huge budgets may well invest in such technology, but this plugin aims to help you provide a certain level of compliance without taking drastic action.
