Optanon for Site Visitors
Optanon goes beyond the pop-up to give you a number of choices when putting a cookie notice on your site. So you can make Optanon obvious to your visitors like we have, or choose a more subtle approach if that suits your needs.
You can also change how you use it at any time – adapting to customer response (Optanon interactions are tracked in Google Analytics), best practice amongst your peers and competitors, or action by your local regulator if necessary.
The Core Optanon Experience
The core user element of Optanon is the ‘Cookie Settings’ button. It has an active rollover state showing the current status for each type of cookie, including the optional Do Not Track control setting.
Clicking on the button or link brings up the Optanon preferences panel where you present visitors with the choices you offer.
Optanon provides some content and descriptions of cookies out-of-the-box, but you can configure and change this at any time. You also choose the default initial status of each type of cookie depending on your needs. This can be: Active, Inactive, Landing Page Inactive, Always Active or Do Not Track – which responds to a DNT browser request.
Optanon therefore gives you 5 different models for obtaining visitor consent. Plus the entire interface is customisable to suit the style of your own site, and supports any European language.
We don’t much like automatic pop-ups, and we know that many users don’t either. However it is something that many people have come to expect when they visit a site for the first time, so we provide an option to show one, like this.
The content of the text and the buttons are entirely configurable, and we can add enhancements like auto-closing if you want it.
