Important notes on cookies on your website
Our built-in cookie banner only affects cookies that are used by features directly built into the website. It does not work for any third-party scripts or plugins that you or any appointed developer has installed within the code of your website using the CMS or Google Tag Manager, therefore the cookies might be added to visitors’ browsers regardless of their choices on the banner and may lead you to think that they are being blocked, which leaves you open to legal action. Such additional cookies may include but are not limited to tracking scripts such as a Facebook pixel or HubSpot integration.
Enable cookie notification

They will also be able to choose which types of cookies are used. (Enabling this field will also display additional fields allowing further customisation of the banner.)

IP anonymization settings
Anonymize IP addresses for Google Analytics
Adds a setting to Google Analytics which tells Google to anonymise the user's IP address.
Do not log IPs on forms
Some forms on the website will send a notification email to the website admin when they're submitted. By default the notification email will display the IP address for the user who submitted the form, turning this setting on will prevent the IP address from being sent as part of the notification message.
