  • Contact Admin: customers can send a request for their account to be deleted. If this option is selected, additional fields for the contact mail address and the mail template are shown.
  • The Additional delete field defines the areas to be deleted for a deletion request.

  • Show consent checkbox in Field one determines the activated consent checkbox pages. We recommend selecting all.
  • Message before the checkbox and Checkbox content The other two fields determine the text before and after the consent checkbox. HTML content can also be entered here.


Cookie consent: Each cookie is assigned to a group which defines the rule-set policy for the consent interface.

You must create a new Cookie Policy Ruleset for each new finished configuration. For example, if two more cookies are added to your page after 6 months, create a new Cookie Policy Ruleset (with a new version) and deactivate the previous Cookie Policy Ruleset.

  • The contents are maintained in the respective static blocks, which are assigned under Title & Description from CMS.
