According to European Union law, website visitors need to have a choice when it comes to the usage of cookies, plugins, online marketing and tracking tools. That’s a so called mandatory opt-in. For legal reasons, this notice (respectively, the cookie banner) needs to be clearly visible directly after accessing the website.
This is where your visitors have the option to decide whether cookies are being used when visiting your website. Thus, tracking only happens upon your visitors’ agreement (opt-in). Furthermore, your visitors can decide whether to accept all cookies or only cookies from certain categories.
We recommend that you contact a legal expert in case of uncertainty. Generally, Jimdo cannot give you any legal advice.
