From 3.1 onwards, Complianz will feature a so-called “Soft” Cookie Wall. Below you can find a short description that explains the difference between the “Soft” Cookie Wall and the regular Cookie Wall as prohibited by GDPR and more privacy laws.
Also, we will have a look at how to enable and change the Soft Cookie Wall, if needed.
“Soft” versus regular Cookie Wall
The regular Cookie Wall will give the user no choice, besides leaving the website or agreeing to third-party cookies. For more legal background on read our article on cookie walls and the GDPR and other privacy regulations:
The “Soft” Cookie Wall will add a new choice, which is dismissing the cookies, before continuing the website visit.
Editing Complianz’ Soft Cookie Wall
First you need to enable the Soft Cookie Wall. This can be done under Cookie Banner settings and is available for all templates.
To edit the template, please refer to the current CSS Lessons. To edit the Cookie Wall, and specifically the background, you can use below CSS properties:
rgba(where a is Alpha) will offer you the possibility to add/change color and opacity. RGBA is similar to HEX (#2daee1) in that it has 24 bits for RGB color, but there is an additional 8-bit value for transparency. From HEX to RGBA? We found a tool for you to experiment with.
/* styles for cookie wall background */
background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.7);
Changing the background of the Soft Cookie Wall
If you want to the change the opacity or color of the background, you can!
We changed the opacity from 0.7 by default to a less opaque 0.5. Where 1 is a solid color and 0 is translucent.
We changed the color to purple, or #693187
/* styles for cookie wall background with hex color #693187 */
background-color: rgba(105, 49, 135, 0.5);
