The Cookiebot CMP widget functions as a shortcut to the users' consent state information on your website. Showing a mini version of the cookie banner, it enables users to easily check or update their consent. This is in line with demands for more transparency and providing users control of their own data, as is required by various privacy legislations such as GDPR.
If you have correctly followed the last part of step 3 in our 3-step installation guide and implemented the Cookie Declaration, then the user will be able to see his current consent (what categories of cookies consent has been given for), change his consent or completely withdraw his consent.
An example of this from our own website is shown below:
If you do not wish to make use of the Cookie Declaration, then you must provide alternative ways for the user to easily – as easily as it was given – withdraw their consent.
If you are implementing a withdrawal option for CCPA/CPRA, it should specifically state the text “Do not share or sell my information":
<a onclick="window.Cookiebot.show()" href="#">Do not sell or share my personal information</a>
4. Deleting cookies from the browser
As an alternative, the user can always change or withdraw a cookie consent simply by deleting all cookies for your domain or by deleting the two specific cookies that remember the consent state: "CookieConsent" and "CookieConsentBulkSetting".
