Is a user’s consent stored on a website?

The consents that are given are not stored on your website, but in a cookie in the user’s device. This way, a site doesn’t have to ask a user to store this data for them (which would require an additional consent that would allow the website to store the user’s consent). Visitors are able to see the consent they’ve given, by going to the privacy settings page of your site.

How can I add/exclude custom scripts based on consents?

Custom scripts (like a Google Analytics tracking code) can be added to a Consent so the script will only be added to the head or footer of your HTML structure when consent is given.

1.) Create Script

Go to GDPR Consent -> Add New Script

2.) Add Script

Name your script and copy/paste the custom script (i.e. a Google tracking code). You can choose to place it in the header or footer (most scripts are okay to run in the footer). Click Publish to save.

3.) Assign the Script to your Consent

Add a new Consent (or Edit an existing one) to assign this script to (for example a Consent called ‘Website Statistics’):

Scroll down and assign your added Script to this Consent:

Save your consent.

4.) Check it out on the frontend

Now your script will only be executed when explicit consent is given by your visitor:

How do I add new languages?

If you would like to translate the backend, you can use Loco Translate.

Do you want the frontend translated of your privacy setting page, you could use WordPress Multi language plugin (WPML), and the consents you add can be written in any language you like.
