Social sharing buttons and cookies


#1

Hello.

Now that you have introduced social sharing buttons I have one question. As far as I know these social sharing buttons install cookies on our websites, right?

Is it possible for you to create an option for us from EU to add "website is using cookies" message with an option of accept/decline?

Thank you very much.

BR.

Hi @mas,

For our social widgets, we use the third party APIs directly– so we're not sure how they set cookies. However, all three of the APIs will insert an iframe into the page... so I'd guess that the cookies are set in the domain of the iframe (which is the domain of the respective service).

For more documentation, you can try these links:

Hope that helps!
