Setting up Usercentrics App and Managing Cookie Banners

For MyWebsite Creator

With the Usercentrics App, you can easily integrate the Usercentrics Consent Management Platform into your website.

What is a Consent Management Platform?

A Consent Management Platform (short CMP) is a software allowing website operators to obtain and store the data protection consent provided by your visitors via a banner or a pop-up, before these user data will be collected by website scripts (tracking).

What functions does the Usercentrics App offer?

Usercentrics is one of the leading Consent Management Platforms. Using the Usercentrics App, you can quickly and easily provide your MyWebsite with a GDPR-compliant cookie consent solution. Usercentrics automatically recognises the services used on the website, e.g. Google Analytics, and provides this information to your visitors via a cookie banner. The cookie banner enables your visitors to grant and manage their consent to use the services. The Usercentrics app supports multiple languages and offers you various options of banner customisation.

Please note

This article describes how to set up the free basic version of the Usercentrics App. A paid app with extended functionality will be available soon.

Setting up the Usercentrics App

To set up the Usercentrics App, you must first add the app via My apps. The setup will then start automatically. During the setup process, you can configure the cookie banner. The banner will then be automatically integrated into your website and will be displayed the next time the website is published.
