Cookie consent feature blog cover art

Our cookie consent feature is ALMOST as good as a real cookie – here’s why

Our team have been busy working hard behind the scenes to make getting cookie consent on your podcast’s website ALMOST as easy as finishing off a packet of triple chocolate cookies!

If you read our bitesize blog on how to own GDPR, you’ll know that new GDPR regulations mean you need to ask visitors to your website to opt-in to cookies being stored about their browsing history alongside a link to your privacy policy (more on privacy policies later).

As always, we’ve got you covered. The team have developed an amazing cookie consent feature (sadly not quite as delicious as it sounds) to make gaining consent from visitors super simple and easy for you and your podcast.

Cookie Consent Feature

Our cookie consent feature has:

  • The ability to add a cookie consent banner to the top or bottom or your website that visitors will see as soon as they visit your site
  • It’s completely customisable – you can change the branding, background, text, colours and links
  • You can add a link to the relevant policy within the banner
  • It comes pre-filled with the proper compliance text so you don’ have to add anything except a link to any policy you want to include
  • Preview your banner BEFORE you publish it and make it live
  • Set up how often the cookie consent banner pops up to returning visitors – be it 30 days, 3 months or a year after they originally consented. You choose!

Privacy Policies

You may be wondering how to get a privacy policy.

We recommend Iubenda for all of your website legal policies. You can even get a 10% discount for being a Podcast Websites member!

The cookie consent feature will be pre-installed on your Podcast Websites dashboard from Friday 8th June.

When you log in, you will see a new “Marketing” header in your menu.

Click the “Cookie consent” button underneath to customise your Cookie Policy and add it to the front end of your website.

It really is as simple as that!
