The Complianz Privacy Suite: Best Practices

How to begin

You have freshly installed Complianz Privacy Suite on your WordPress website. These are some quick tips to get the best out of our plugin:

1. When to use the wizard?

We recommend using the wizard if your website is either ready for deployment or after significant changes are made. Our plugin detects changes in Cookies and Plugins/Scripts, meaning every significant change might trigger a notification to change your policies and follow the steps in the wizard to finish the tasks in your Dashboard.

Our advice is to activate the plugin and configure our Privacy Plugin when all other plugins are installed and running. Not a new website, or no significant changes, besides our plugin? Use the wizard immediately, make sure previous or other similar plugins are deactivated, and cache emptied to get the best results.

2. The Cookie Banner

Use the full possibilities of our Custom CSS and Templates to make the Cookie consent banner as user-friendly as possible. Test the banner on your website to see if it doesn’t block any vital content when activated. Are you interested in gathering the most opt-ins? Use our A/B testing tool to see which banner works best for you.

3. The Cookie Scan

For the best results, we suggest to clear your browser cookies and to temporarily disable any Adblockers. This way, the Cookie scan will not report cookies from deactivated plugins, that might still be in your browser, while finding cookies that might get blocked by your Adblocker software.

4. Multi-Language

Our plugin menus are displayed in the default language of your WordPress installation, provided that your site language is one of the 47 supported locales. If your site support multi-language with a plugin like WPML or Polylang, Complianz can generate legal documents in all supported languages. Please refer to our translation documentation for in-depth instructions.
