By enabling the “Reloading” checkbox, the page will reload if the user accepts the cookie agreement. This is useful if you have content which can only be displayed for users who have accepted the agreement.
By enabling the “On Scroll” checkbox, the notice will automatically be accepted and disappear when the user scrolls down the page.
The necessary distance the user needs to scroll can be customized within this setting. By default it is set to 100px.
Use the “Cookie Expiry” dropdown to change how long cookies will last for. Choose from a list of options, ranging from 1 hour to infinity (no expiry).
Use the “Script Placement” option to choose whether you want the notice to be loaded within the header or footer of your page. If you select header, it will be loaded before most of the page’s content. If you select footer, it will be loaded after everything else.
Loading in the header means that users will see the notice sooner. However, loading in the footer can reduce the time needed before your page becomes fully interactive, allowing for faster load times.
In the Google Analytics section of the settings page, you can choose to enable tracking. Simply tick the checkbox, then paste your tracking code into the field underneath.

The notice’s color can easily be adjusted in the settings.
