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

Project Description

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.

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).

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
