... especially if your website uses cookies to store or track the personal data of your visitors from the European Union and countries that have enacted strict privacy regulations. We will be launching our cookie consent solution on Product Hunt soon:

You have to use it in the EU.
Shreya R Nambiar
@maciej_cupial Right! Do you have a custom-coded one or using any automated solution that takes care of cookie compliance?
Qudsia Ali
Yes, because it is essential in the EU to receive informed consent from visitors to use cookies before they begin using our website.
Shreya R Nambiar
@qudsia_ali Yes. However, merely using one without paying attention to other aspects of cookie consent will backfire.

I currently don't because I'm using @usefathom for analytics. One of the many perks to using a privacy-first analytics option.

@usefathom @ryangilbert That's great! Tracking cookies can be set by any source though. Applause to all the great products that have taken privacy-first approaches.

I used to use Osano for cookie consent and their UI looks good but their product is bad. I switched to another service at and although the cookie banner has an ugly green tone to it, It works fine.

Simple cookie policy banner and GDPR message generated by Google Ads
Mandatory cookie banners always remind me that we're living in the medieval age of the Internet.

For a long time I wanted to make an interesting banner for my site, but nothing came to mind. Decided to try ideas from Indeed, there are a lot of ideas here and what to choose. Now my banner looks great and attracts customers.

@romanov_rom Hi, this looks cool but this is about cookie banners required by privacy laws :)
Marcus Greenwood
No. We have a cookies link in our footer for the 0.0001% of people who care about their Google Analytics cookie. I am aware of the rules, but unless you run a high traffic B2C website, the worst that can happen is a tap on the wrist.
Of course, it is a duty

@gamerseo Great! Do you use any third-party service for the banner?

A cookie consent banner is the cookie notice that is shown on websites and some apps on the user’s first visit. The cookie alert is meant to inform users of any cookies that could be on the site, their rights in that regard, and to ask for the user’s consent to run those cookies in the first place. Having an accurate cookie banner, cookie policy and blocking cookies before consent are all requirements under the ePrivacy (Cookie Law) and GDPR. walgreenslistens

We use cookies at First of all, they are necessary for the convenience and comfort of users when working on the Internet. For example, you have registered on the forum, and so that you do not have to re-enter your login and password every time you visit the site, cookies save this information and the visitor enters the forum from his PC automatically. Agree, it is quite convenient.
