A cookies consent Plone solution; used for European Cookie Law by Emilia Romagna Region



An add-on to provide a full-featured cookie consent solution for your site. It's mainly target to the recent European Cookie Law_ but can be used anywhere if you care about user's privacy.

.. contents:: Table of contents

How it works

This add-on gives two kind of different features:

  • A cookie consent confirmation banner, which should link (but it's not required) the user to a Privacy Policy.
  • An opt-out dashboard for accept/reject single cookies

This add-on is also compatible with internationalized sites (LinguaPlone_ supported).

This is provided using a slightly modified version of the Silktide Cookie Consent JavaScript plugin_

Apart some accessibility enhancement (see here, here, here__ and here__) it's content and behavior can be customized by a control panel.

Opt-out dashboard

Additionally an opt-out dashboard (a view callable as /@@optout-dashboard) is available to restricts 3rd-party cookies.

The dashboard composition can be configured by the control panel, but is above che scope of this add-on to manage how those cookies are processed. Third-party party add-ons must take care of this.

A cookie is always in the form NAME-optout and can have a value equals to true or false.

Know add-ons which support opt-out cookies

Here follow a list of common add-ons that can be used with opt-out cookies:

``_ (version >= 2.3) - server side
   A cookie named ``social-optout`` valued to ``true`` will automatically activate the
   "*Do not track users*" option for the current user. 
`collective.analyticspanel`_ (version >= 0.5.0) - server side
   If properly configure, a cookie named ``analytics-optout`` valued to ``true`` will not load the analytics code.
   Although the add-on works server side, you are free to provide an analytics code that conditionally load when
   this cookie is present working totally on client side.
`Products.Maps`_ (version >= 0.4) - client side
   If a cookie named ``maps-optout`` is provided valued to ``true`` the Google map is not directly displayed in the page.
``_ (version >= 1.2.0) - server side
   Not directly RedTurtle Video, but extensions like ``_ (>=0.4.0)
   and `collective.rtvideo.vimeo`_ (>=0.3.0) will not display the video directly if a ``video-optout`` cookie valued
   ``true`` is provided


Add-on configuration can be reached from the "*Cookie consent configuration*" entry in the Plone control panel.

Cookie consent banner

In the banner configuration you can:

* activate an auto-grant-on-click feature. With this every click on whatever link in the site is interpreted
  as accepting the Privacy Policy  
* Customizing the banner text for every language used in the site (not required if your site use a single language).

The banner text will normally contains a link to the Privacy Policy.

Opt-out dashboard

The opt-out dashboard configuration is only needed if you are using 3rd party add-ons or external software that
handle opt-out cookies.

Configuring this panel will select which cookies must the available to the user's preferences.

You must provide:

* an application id
* a list of one or more prefix, used for build cookies name
* a title and description for describing to users how this opt-out works if activated.
  Again: you can provide a description for every involed language
