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

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

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

  • each Elementgroup can be assigned to a cookie
  • when the cookie is allowed, then the content will be shown which are assigned to the elementgroup for the cookie


Elements are for the content restriction if the cookie is not enabled by the customer. The system will prevent the output for these elements which aren't enabled

  • Elements ( JavaScript Code ) will be tracked automatically if activated in the settings
  • each Element needs to defined to an element group and should be activated to restrict the content if the cookie wasn't enabled

Customer Policy

  • This GDPR Module appends a confirmation checkbox to all magento forms such as registration, newsletter, etc.


Important! Each key from the Local Storage needs its own cookie so that there are no problems with the module. Therefore you have to create the CMS-Block and the cookie in the backend.
