A guide to display cookie banner popup in your online storefront

What are cookies and data collection?

Countries and regions around the world have introduced regulations that dictate how businesses collect, handle, and share their customer’s data. Collecting customer data, especially cookie data and other data related to browsing activity, is essential to merchants looking for insights on their customer’s behaviour. This data also helps merchants advertise to customers on third-party marketing platforms.
Cookie consent is the interaction that happens on your website between a visitor and a consent management platform (CMP) that enables users to decide whether they will allow cookies to collect their personal data.
