You can use an explicit or implied cookie consent mode for your cookie banner. Go to your CookieScript user account > Settings > Main settings. Here you will find CONSENT MODE, where you can choose between explicit or implied cookie consent modes.

  1. Explicit consent mode means that no cookies are set up until the user agrees to use cookies. Explicit consent mode should be used as a default since it is a requirement under GDPR and other privacy laws.
    Explicit consent mode will lead to the following cookie compliance results:

    Regulation

    Cookie compliance

    GDPR

    Compliant

    CCPA

    Compliant

    LGPD

    Compliant

    CNIL

    Compliant

  2. Implied consent mode means that all cookies are set up until the user disagrees to use cookies. In this case, your website will collect website users' personal data, but your cookie banner will not be GDPR compliant. Implied consent mode will lead to the following cookie compliance results:

    Regulation

    Cookie compliance

    GDPR

    Non-compliant. Consent should involve an affirmative act.

    CCPA

    Compliant

    LGPD

    Non-compliant. Consent should involve an affirmative act.

    CNIL

    Non-compliant. Consent should involve an affirmative act.

    It is recommended to use explicit cookie consent mode to be all major privacy laws compliant.
