Manually implementing prior consent:

Our script automatically blocks cookies and apply prior consent of known scripts, but if you didn’t find yours script blocked, you can block it manually: here is an example of how you can manually blocks Google Analytics script.

To enable prior consent, add attribute “data-cookieconsent” in script tags which sets cookies. You can use comma to separate the categories “preferences”, “statistics”, “necessary”, “unclassified” and “marketing” according to the type of cookies that script generates. Secondly change the attribute “type” from “text/javascript” to “text/plain”. e.g. Applying prior consent on Google Analytics: In the Header Code field, find the Google Analytics code which looks like below:

Before:

< script>  (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)})(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');

    ga('create', 'UA-00000000-0', 'auto');

    ga('send', 'pageview'); < /script>

After (in bold):

< script type="text/plain" data-cookieconsent="statistics"> (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)})(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');

    ga('create', 'UA-00000000-0', 'auto');
