Checklist

Use this checklist to ensure a smooth transition when taking your integration live.

Ready to go live with your Legal Monster setup? This checklist provides you with an overview of what items must be ready before you go live.

Agreements all set and published

Most importantly, your agreements must be complete and published. For example, users need to be able to read your cookie policy and privacy policy, when they consent to your cookies.

Make sure you have:

  • A Privacy Policy

  • A Cookie Policy

  • A Terms of Service Policy, if you use our widgets for consent and signup

Correctly configure your widgets

Each widget must be correctly configured to be legally compliant. Make sure that your widgets are configured as intended:

  • Make sure that your audience is correctly set - business or consumer

  • Your widget is connected to the correct agreements.

  • All cookies are categorised for your cookie widget

These are legally binding, so make sure that your agreements are paired correctly with your widgets for signup, marketing and/or cookies. For instance, if you have a "Signup for a service"-widget, you'll need to include both a privacy policy and your terms of service.

Installed widgets on your website

The widgets need to be installed correctly. We highly recommend adding some UI test to your test suite to make sure, that the widgets are shown and working.

Follow our technical documentation to install the widgets properly.

  • Cookie widget is shown on the first visit to your site

  • Sign-up consent is shown when users sign up

  • Email-marketing consent is shown when users signup for your newsletter

Blocked cookies on your website

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.

Our widgets support different languages and jurisdictions. You should select the option that is relevant for your website.

If you do not specify a language, or if the language you set is not supported by us in the visitor's jurisdiction, English will be used.

You can see all the supported languages in this table here.

If you are on our Pro plan, you have the option to customise the styling of our cookie widget. This includes changing the button colours and removing the "Powered by Legal Monster" branding. You can find all the options, and how to customise in this guide.

🎉 Go live!

Ready, set, go! You're now ready to become a platin data citizen. Forgot worrying about legal compliance, and know that our privacy mascot's Sven is taking care of everything for you.
