The Cookie Groups for Ultimate GDPR & CCPA are cookie levels, where you would need to pass level 1 to get to level 2. These levels have cookies that are set in them and when you pass to another level, these cookies will also remain.
This will allow tracking of only the necessary cookies or possible cookies.
- Essential - For cookies which are strictly necessary for your website to be able to operate or to provide user with a requested service
- Functional - These are cookies that are designed for purposes such as enhancing a website’s functionality. These are either not strictly essential for the website or functionality which user has requested to work, or are cookies which serve non-essential purposes in addition to their essential purpose.
- Analytics - Analytical (or performance) cookies track and gather data about what a user does on a website.
- Advertising - Targeting (or advertising) cookies record information about users visit to and use of your website, for advertising purposes.
You can customize the cookie groups as you see fit. You can disable, rename, add/remove cookies, etc., the cookie group of your choice.
When a user opens the site for the FIRST time, the cookie group would depend on what the admin have set. These are the ways to set the default cookie group:
Block Cookies Until User Gives Consent
You can set this option in Ultimate GDPR & CCPA > Cookie Consent > Preference tab.
This will block all the cookies that are not in the cookies whitelist.
Set a Default Cookies Group
You can set this option in Ultimate GDPR & CCPA > Cookie Consent > Additional settings tab.
This will block the cookie group set by the admin.
Sample: Default Cookie Group is Advertising
When a user has already used your site, the cookie group that the user has set before will be remembered unless the cache has been cleared on the users side.
This is used to limit the cookies that are in the site to gather details about the user.
