We’ve updated your cookie banner to match a recent requirement

In the past, EU data protection authorities allowed continued browsing as a valid method of consent for cookies. However, guidelines have changed over time, and we have long removed this feature on new cookie banner installations.

To keep our users safe, we took a step further and analyzed all our users’ websites to determine whether this feature was still in use.

On November 21, 2022, we upgraded all the affected installations to the latest requirements:

  • we’ve removed the possibility to accept cookies via continued browsing (in technical terms: the consentOnContinuedBrowsing parameter will be forced to false, nullifying the true value you may have set previously)
  • we’ve added to the cookie banner an explicit “Accept” button when necessary (in technical terms: when both the Accept and “x” buttons are missing, we’ll display the “Accept” button by forcing the acceptButtonDisplay parameter to true)

What do I need to do?

No action is required, but you may want to take the chance to make sure that the configuration of your cookie banner is up to date with the latest requirements by data protection authorities, which have recently become stricter and now – for instance – require an explicit “Reject” button.
