Access Shopify’s theme management panel and click on Customize Theme:
This will redirect you to the page that allows you to modify the theme. Click onFooter to access the modification panel:
The footer management panel includes a series of boxes in which to include for example links to social networks in which you maintain a presence (Social Media field), contact information (Contact Field) etc.
Although there’s no dedicated field for legal documents, the area used for contact information is just as adequate. You can add the iubenda code we provide you with here, under corporate information, as in the example that follows.
HTML needs to be modified in order to include the cookie solution into your website (in this case the source code from the selected Shopify theme).
To complete the insert, you must access the management panel and click on Theme Options and then on HTML/CSS. Please note that in order to be allowed this modification, you must have a paid Shopify plan:
As shown in the image below, once inside the
HTML/CSS modification panel, first click on Layout and then on theme.liquid to access the source code page.
At this point, all that needs to be done is to locate the
HEAD section and insert the script provided by iubenda before the closing tag:
This will cause the iubenda cookie banner to appear on the page at each user’s first visit. User consent will be registered via the latter’s continued browsing activity and then memorised so that the cookie solution will not be reactivated on the same user’s next visit.
All the options to customize the visuals as well as the behaviour of the cookie banner are in this guide.
Also remember to set up the blocking of cookies that require user consent by using one of the following methods.
