What does Cookie Switch mean

Recommended Posts

I just noticed under my Privacy Policy there is a box with text Cookie Switch and a yes and no choice. Can someone please tell me what this is? I have no clue what it means and am assuming most customers will not know either. I have found out where to change the text but need to know what it is so I can create a more descriptive text for it. Thanks

I think it's badly worded, and will require an explanation in the Privacy Policy document.

All the code changes that added this is at:
https://github.com/cubecart/v6/commit/44f187cb1329fb2ca8c3d14d1e031d0226d4c179

Basically, it is offering the customer to allow CubeCart to issue and accept/use all cookies, or only those cookies necessary for its internal functions (that is, third-party cookies are not used, such as Google Analytics).

This is attempting to comply with the EU's privacy requirements.

You may also see this at the top of the Foundation skin's Homepage.

In addition to Foundation's content.document.php template, there is also similar code in box.eu_cookie.php template.

I just saw I forgot to reply to your reply. Thanks again. I've changed the wording to "Accept Cookies" to make it more understandable.
