Where can I learn more about this plugin?

To learn more about how this plugin works, visit the support page.

How does Termly’s plugin help with data privacy legislation compliance?

Laws like the GDPR, UK GDPR, ePrivacy Directive, and UK’s Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations have strict requirements about how websites can use cookies. Termly’s plugin can help you comply with cookie consent requirements, including scanning your site for cookies, gathering user consent, creating a cookie preference center, and more.

Where can I find out more about the EU and UK laws regarding the use of cookies?

You can find more details about EU and UK regulations like the Cookie Law on the European Commission’s site, and the UK’s PECR on the Information Commissioner’s Office site. For information about how the GDPR affects your website, visit Termly’s GDPR guide.

Is the consent banner customizable?

Yes, you can customize your consent banner to match the look and feel of your website. Edit the colors, theme, text, font, display style, and position using our banner settings editor.

Do visitors need to consent to cookies to use my site?

If you choose to display your consent banner as a top or bottom bar, or as a left- or right-side tooltip, users will be able to continue using your site without interacting with the consent banner. You can also set your banner to disappear when a user scrolls (scroll to consent function). However, if you choose to display your consent notification as a full-screen modal, users will need to interact with the notice before continuing to use your site.

Will cookies on my site be blocked until a user gives consent to their use?

Yes, if you enable auto-blocking through the plugin, non-essential cookies will be blocked until your site’s visitors have consented to your use of cookies. To learn more about setting up and customizing auto-blocking, read our developer’s guide.

Is GDPR Cookie Consent Banner free?

There is a free version of GDPR Cookie Consent Banner that includes all the basic plugin features. The free plan has a limit on unique monthly visitors to your consent banner. When that limit has been reached, your banner will be deactivated until the following month. Consider upgrading to a Pro+ plan to unlock additional monthly visitors and access even more features on your consent banner. Visit our pricing page for more information.

Have been using the plugin. Sorry to see it fall into the hands of another big company. Will look elsewhere.

Used to be free and simple. Plugin - and all our data - was sold. With the latest update the new plugin owner made now a completely new plugin an wants a lot of money for using his completely different software. A NO GO!!!! WordPress should stop this rip-off-selling-installment thing! Sadly I can not give a Zero Star Rating.

This used to be a simple plugin that did everything I needed. Not any longer. It's a completely different plugin now. More to the point, I have no intention of getting scammed into paying $15/month/site for a cookie banner. I've removed it from all my sites. Bad move Termly.

besides the: 1. poor documentation of the new version 2. absence in controls if you do not create an account on termly 3. stupidly limit of 100 unique visitors / month for free plan 4. abscence of translations they didn't even bother announcing or doing a pre-version to allow you to migrate or do something; only possible way to get the old controls is to downgrade.

Be aware. This product has now changed so much that the original reviews should be removed from wordpress.org. This "plugin" is now a separate commercial product that looks like it has been designed for different purposes. The plugin now requires you to pay to use it. It's impossible to security vet this product now without paying to use it.

Of course I understand that plugin development costs time and money, but if you want to sell a premium version make it worth it by offering extra functionality that makes life easier for the users. Don't takeover a free plugin, strip the functionality and force users to pay to keep their sites working. That's extortion in my opinion! I've had 2 clients using the original free plugin and they don't like this new course, so they don't want to update and pay, but will migrate to a different free plugin that does offer a good functional free plugin and if necessary a premium add-on.
