Cookie banner

Help users manage their personal data by telling them when you store cookies on their device.

Setting data-hide-cookie-banner="true" on any link inside the banner will overwrite the default action and when clicked will dismiss the cookie banner for a period of 365 days (approx. 1 year).

If the examples below are not showing the banner, make sure the seen_cookie_message cookie is not present or is set to false.
