Using Cookies with Expressed Consent

Operating your store in Cookie Restriction Mode requires that visitors express their consent before any cookies can be saved to their computers.  Unless consent is granted, many features of your store will be unavailable.

When Cookie Restriction Mode is enabled, visitors to your store are notified that cookies are required for full-featured operations. They are invited to read your Privacy Policy for more information, and encouraged to grant consent by clicking the Allow button. Your store’s default Privacy Policy page displays the name of your store and contact information, and explains the purpose of each cookie that is used by your Magento Go store. If Google Analytics is available for your store, it is invoked only after the visitor has granted permission to use cookies.

If a visitor’s browser does not have JavaScript enabled, a message explains that JavaScript must be enabled to use the website. After JavaScript is enabled, the Cookie Restriction Mode message prompts the visitor to read your Privacy Policy, and to click the Allow button to accept cookies from the site. The Cookie Restriction Mode message resides in a CMS static block, which you can edit to suit your voice and style. Although there is variation by theme, the message looks something like this:

    Step 1: Enable Cookie Restriction Mode

    Step 2: Edit the Cookie Restriction Mode Message

    Step 3: Update Your Privacy Policy
