This add-on gives two kind of different features:
- An opt-out dashboard for accept/reject single cookies
This add-on is also compatible with internationalized sites (LinguaPlone supported).
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.
