Cookie Banner for Wix Websites

Cookies are small pieces of data stored on a site visitor’s browser. They are typically used to keep track of the settings users have selected and actions they have taken on a site.

In accordance with the Cookie Law, if you operate in the EU (or could potentially have EU users) and you’re using cookies on your site, you must:

  1. provide a cookie policy (this can be done by adding a section about your site’s cookies in your privacy policy – Learn more about creating a Privacy and Cookie Policy for Wix);
  2. display a cookie banner at the user’s first visit;
  3. block non-exempt cookies (e.g. via Google Analytics) before obtaining user consent;
  4. release cookies only after informed consent has been provided.

On the Cookies and Your Wix Site guide, Wix invites you to consider adding a third-party tool to notify your site visitors of cookies, since their Cookie Alert App only alerts your site visitors of cookies placed on their browsers, and it doesn’t address all Cookie Law requirements (like the prior blocking). 

How to add the iubenda cookie banner on your Wix website

Here’s where our Cookie Solution comes in very handy: it allows you to display a fully customizable cookie banner, collect cookie consent, implement prior blocking and more. It’s easy to run, fast and free up to 25k pageviews/month.

To install the Cookie Solution you’ll need to edit the HEAD of your site, a Wix premium feature available only on their paid plan.

  1. Generate your cookie banner: Cookie banner configurator
  2. Copy and paste the resulting code snippet before the end of the HEAD tag of your pages (learn more about embedding custom code on Wix) and you’re done!
Cookie banner example

This above is an example of a cookie banner created with our Cookie Solution. Remember that cookie notices are just one part of the requirements: in order to be fully compliant, you must also link to an accurate cookie policy and block cookies prior to consent.
