By clicking the “accept” button that displays on the bar, your blog visitors can give permission for the storage and handling of their data by your website.
I’ve added a cookie notice bar to my blog and it displays at the bottom of the screen.
The bar displays an “accept” button and “view settings” link. Users that click the “view settings” link can access their personal settings to give or deny permission to individual Consents. Once their settings are saved or when they click the “accept” button, the bar disappears for 365 days.
If you would like to add similar gpdr compliant cookies consent bar to your WordPress site, you will have to install WP GDPR Compliance plugin. The plugin also makes wordpress comment form to be GDPR compliant.
