Shopify, this question is for you...
If we have a website with European users, 'unambiguous, affirmative consent' to cookies is not optional. It's the law as per EU GDPR, with huge fines for non-compliance (or at best lots of time-wasting admin work if challenged on it).
Just like we can't run an online store without payment processing functionality, we can't run an online store selling to Europeans without a GDPR-compliant cookie consent mechanism.
So why does Shopify fob-off GDPR-compliant cookie consent to 3rd party developers?? This is core, non-optional functionality.
I've spent a lot of time looking at the 3rd party 'cookie bar/banner' offerings on the Shopify App Store:
Robust cookie consent should not be functionality that shop owners need to waste time searching Apps for. Or worse installing Apps that might be dangerously complacent, and indeed making their GDPR problems worse.
When is Shopify going to offer GDPR-compliant cookie consent as part of its core functionality?
I've already tried inumerous apps, November 2, 2021, and no signal of a perfect solution.
Does anyone knows if this this code works for shopify?
It's not full compliant, but at least we can inform and have full control of the css, and we can also add "if" for languages.
