Configuring iubenda for Jimdo

Jimdo has recently made changes that prevent the embedding of your privacy statement. Please insert a direct link to your privacy statement in the meantime, until Jimdo allows embedding again.


How do I integrate the iubenda privacy/cookie policy and the cookie solution into my Jimdo site?

We must first distinguish between the integration of the privacy policy, which also contains the cookie policy, and the integration of the the cookie solution which manages the banner visuals, the registering of consent, the preemptive blocking of cookies and so on.

integration of the privacy and cookie policy

Start by accessing the admin dashboard of your Jimdo site then click “Menu” in the top left corner of your screen and choose “Settings” in the taskbar to the right; now select “Privacy & Security” and proceed to scroll down to the bottom of the page:

This is where you paste your privacy policy’s embedding code as shown in the example below:

Your embedding code can be found in your iubenda account through your privacy policy’s integration tab. Consult the adding iubenda to your site guide for more details.

Once you have completed this step, return to “Settings” on your taskbar, then choose “General”. On the resulting screen, select the “Footer” tab and activate your privacy policy as shown in the image below:

A link to your privacy/cookie policy will now appear in the footer on all the pages of your Jimdo site.

Integration of the iubenda cookie solution (banner, registering of consent and script blocking)

Once you’ve integrated this link (which of course also includes the cookie policy if you’ve activated it, you must complete the configuration by also embedding the iubenda cookie solution to manage the banner visuals, the registering of consent and the preemptive blocking of script.

Except for certain cookies in categories which are exempt, Cookie Law also requires that a cookie policy be set up and show to the user, that the user be shown a brief notice (banner) the first time they access the site and that the script that installs or could install cookie be suppressed before consent can be obtained.

To configure the iubenda cookie solution you must modify the HEAD of your Jimdo site. To do so, you first need to access the “Settings” panel, and then click on “Edit Head”:

On this screen that follows, you will need to copy paste the iubenda cookie solution code in the blabk box of the “Edit ead” section:

This code is available under the “Integration” tab of your privacy policy once you have activated the cookie policy. The iubenda cookie banner will now automatically appear at each user’s first visit. User consent is obtained through the latter’s continued browsing and this preference will be memorized so that the iubenda cookie solution banner will not be triggered at the same user’s next visit.

All available options to customize the cookie banner’s style and behaviour are described in this guide.

You should also remember to set up the blocking of scripts which require prior consent to be obtain from the user, by using one of the methods outlined in this article.
