For your Legal monster integration to be compliant, you must block any non-necessary cookies until the user has given consent. Make sure that no cookies are set on your page when users first visit and have not yet given consent. We have written a small guide on how to block third-party cookies in our technical documentation. We also have a guide if you are using GTM to insert all your scripts.
Our widgets support different languages and jurisdictions. You should select the option that is relevant for your website.
You can see all the supported languages in this table here.
If you are on one of our paid plans, you have the option to customise the styling of our cookie widget. This includes changing the button colours and using a link instead of a shield to access cookie settings. You can find all the options, and how to customise in this guide.
