Flipdish provides you with a standard cookie settings banner for your website, along with a privacy and cookie policy. These set out the cookies used on your site, the purpose of those cookies and the duration of those cookies, based on the default cookies set by Flipdish.
If you use cookies otherwise than as described in the template Cookie Policy then you should put in place your own cookie settings banner. If you do not then there is a risk that you may not comply with data protection and e-privacy law.

Configuring the cookie management

In your Flipdish Portal, navigate to the "Cookie Management" page via the "Website" dropdown.

On that page, you can configure your the cookie management. There are currently two modes:

  1. Default banner (non-GDPR compliant). In this mode, In this mode, your visitors will see a simple cookie banner if you’re using a Flipdish-generated site to inform them that cookies are used on the site. There is no cookie management, and mobile apps will not display any option for users to manage their settings. This mode is not GDPR compliant.

  2. GDPR compliant banner. In this mode, your users will see a cookie management interface where they can control the different levels of cookies they’re comfortable with. You should use this mode if you operate within the EU.

Managing the cookie banner via code

By default, the Flipdish cookie settings banner will appear on your online ordering webpage unless you disable it. When operating from a region that controls cookie usage by law (such as the EU) it is important that you give your customers control over cookie usage.

If your site has its own cookie management interface, you can prevent the Flipdish cookie settings banner from appearing. You can also programmatically configure the user's cookie preferences.

How to disable the Flipdish cookie settings banner with code

To disable the settings banner, set the cookie "cookie consent" with value "necessary,functional,performance,advertising". Use a 6-month expiry.

document.cookie = "cookieconsent=necessary,functional,performance,advertising; expires=Thu, 18 Dec 2013 12:00:00 UTC"

How to programmatically set the user's cookie preferences

document.cookie = "cookieconsent=necessary,functional; expires=Thu, 18 Dec 2013 12:00:00 UTC"

document.cookie = "cookieconsent=necessary,performance,advertising; expires=Thu, 18 Dec 2013 12:00:00 UTC"
