2. jQuery Cookiebar


The Cookie Bar plugin creates a small bar at the top or bottom of the website with a short message about cookies and accept, decline, and privacy policy buttons. Once a user has made the decision to either accept or decline, the Cookie Bar slides up, then disappears. The Cookie Bar can be set up to work in a variety of ways. By default, it uses assumed consent. This means that when a user visits the website, cookies can be set as normal with no interruption. The Cookie Bar is still displayed to provide the user with options for cookies.
