Consent Manager Settings

At any point, you can change settings of Consent Manager. In settings, you can choose to ask again for visitor’s consent, import consent setup from another website, or set the language for forms.

Import privacy settings

You can import consents setup from another website. Thanks that you won’t need to set the same options again for every website one by one. The import will include all texts, styles and setup of your forms. But, it will not import the custom cookie domains and the setting of the GDPR compliance.

To import consents setup from another website, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Consent Manager.
  2. From the website picker, choose the website you want to work with.
  3. Navigate to Settings.
  4. In Import consent setup from other website, choose the website from which you want to import.
  5. Click Import and confirm the import.

These two options won’t be imported:

  • Custom cookie domains

  • The setup of the GDPR compliance.

Ask again for a consent

You can ask again a visitor for a consent 6 months after the previous consent was given. The consent will show up to visitors who didn’t consent to one or more elements. Asking again will help you increase the number of full consents, as visitors will be more familiar with your website after 6 months and may trust you more to agree on data collection.

To turn this option on, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Consent Manager.
  2. From the website picker, choose the website you want to work with.
  3. Navigate to Settings.
  4. In Reacquire visitor’s consent, mark Ask your visitors for consents again after 6 months from last consents view.

Manage languages

Consent Manager allows you to add and manage multiple languages to your consent forms and widgets.

To add a new language, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Consent Manager.
  2. From the website picker, choose the website you want to work with.
  3. Navigate to Settings.
  4. In Consent form language, click Add language.
  5. Start typing the name of the language you want to add and choose a proper language from the dropdown list. You can add multiple languages at once.
  6. Click OK.

The new languages are on your list. Now, you can translate your consent form and widgets into the languages you’ve added. The languages are not live yet. First, you need to translate the copy on forms and widgets. Then, you can activate the language for your visitors.

Translate consent form and widgets

Once you’ve added new languages, you can switch to the consent templates to prepare a proper copy.

To translate the form or widget, follow these steps:

  1. From a top right corner drop-down, choose the language you want to translate to.
  2. Begin translating forms and widgets. Click Edit template next to the element you want to translate.
  3. In the editor, change the copy of each element.
  4. Once the translation is ready, click Save.
  5. Repeat these steps for other forms and widgets.
  6. Once the translation is ready, navigate to Settings.
  7. In Consent form language, click an icon near the language you want to make live.
  8. Click Activate option.

Now the added language is available to your visitors. At any time, you can deactivate the language in the settings.

Set default language

You can choose which language should be the default one for your visitors. The default language will be shown to your visitors when they enter your website for the first time.

To set the default language, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Consent Manager.
  2. From the website picker, choose the website you want to work with.
  3. Navigate to Settings.
  4. In Consent form language, click the icon near the language you want to make the default.
  5. Click Set as a default.
