Opt-out means that a tracking cookie will NOT be set if the user actively clicks on a specific ”do-not-track-me-link”. By Clicking anywhere else, the user accepts the cookies used on the page.
Opt-in means that a tracking cookie will ONLY be set IF the user actively clicks on ACCEPT COOKIES.
The cookie notification can be displayed either in a 'top bar' or in an 'overlay' - or even in a combination of both.
For both overlay and top bar display of the cookie notification the procedure is the same:
1) Enable the feature by checking the enable-box
2) Add the notification text you want the visitor to see (plus a headline if you are using the overlay)
3) Choose either opt-in or opt out by checking the box below the text field.
4) Add the link-text. This is the link that the visitor should click on to either opt-in or -out.
6) Press save.
