Jimdo cookie banner

  • Jimdo represents a simplified concept for creating websites according to the WYSIWYG principle: what you see is what you get. Online shops in particular can also be put together by beginners with Jimdo thanks to simple user guidance. When designing a website, especially a commercial online shop, alignment between Jimdo and the GDPR is of great importance. A Jimdo cookie banner ensures that your visitors can opt-in in a legally secure manner. With a cookie consent manager, such a Jimdo cookie notice can be created in just a few steps.

  • Overview of the shop system

    Jimdo is a product from Jimdo GmbH. This company was founded in February 2007 in Hamburg. In 2008, Internet AG bought up 30 percent of the shares. This collaboration ended in 2009. Jimdo has had a store function since 2010. This enables users to create professional online shops . Jimdo is a modular system based on the WYSIWYG principle. The Jimdo web kit can only be used on the Jimdo servers. The basic version of Jimdos is free. It is called PLAY, offers 500 MB of storage space and allows users to register a subdomain. This basic version does not allow the creation of additional domains and does not offer email functions. Further and larger web hosting packages are subject to a fee in Jimdo. The online sales platforms or shops offered by Jimdo can be divided into three size categories. A previously available free online shop has not been part of the offer since 2019. The shop and website software supports several languages in its international orientation. The Jimdo web kit has also been available as a mobile app since 2014 and can be operated on both iOS and Android devices. In 2019, Jimdo also added SEO (search engine optimization) and logo design services. With the addition of a Jimdo cookie banner , you contribute to GDPR compliance.

  • Jimdo Cookie Banner and its legal status

    Each use of cookies that are not absolutely necessary for the technical operation of a website requires the express consent of the user. This emerges from the judgment of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in July 2019 at the latest. In this context, there is also talk of the opt-in obligation. For you as a website and shop operator, this means that you must explicitly ask your users for their consent to the collection of cookies . In connection with the GDPR, the judgment serves to strengthen data protection. The implementation takes place via a Jimdo cookie banner. As the operator of a Jimdo site, you are responsible for ensuring that this opt-in requirement is met. One implementation option can be found in a cookie content manager. This offers the required double opt-in by displaying a Jimdo cookie notice . This Jimdo cookie banner must give a clear indication of the cookie collection and processing. Furthermore, your visitors, customers and prospects must be given the opportunity to either consent to this collection or to refuse it. A legally compliant implementation is possible using a Jimdo cookie consent manager . A CMP (Consent Management Provider) offers one, giving your visitors the option of giving their consent to the processing of cookies each time they visit your site via the Jimdo Cookie Banner. After consent has been given via the Jimdo cookie banner , the first non-technically required Jimdo cookie may be set. It should be noted here that, at the latest after the judgment of the European Court of Justice, it is only permissible to collect cookies after consent has been given. This applies to numerous cookies that are not technically necessary for website operators, but are economically indispensable, for example analysis and tracking cookies.

necessity and need

The recording of cookies is commonplace in eCommerce and shop operations. A Jimdo cookie must be set not only for the technical operation, but also for the commercially indispensable advertising and marketing measures . Since the express consent by means of a double opt-in is mandatory, you as a shop operator benefit from a clear Jimdo cookie banner. When selecting the appropriate consent manager , you should pay attention to the availability of certain services and features .

A good Jimdo cookie banner can be integrated into the Jimdo shop without major technical hurdles. Insertion is intuitive and responsive to the end devices and operating systems used. After the code for the cookie consent has been integrated into the Jimdo site, every cookie that is not absolutely necessary for the technical operation of the site is automatically blocked. You should also pay attention to interfaces or compatibility with other systems or shop solutions you use. If you are an international provider, you should pay attention to the multilingualism of the Jimdo cookie notice.

JIMDO Cookie Consent Tool:

    Jimdo Cookie Banner and how it works

  • A specific framework has become established for cookie consent management and for obtaining consent to the use of cookies: The TCF (Transparency and Consent Framework) published by the IAB Europe industry association (Interactive Advertising Bureau) has become established as the standard. Modern cookie consent managers are based on this standard, which was first presented in 2018 and amended to version TCF 2.0 in May.
    The framework and its operators aim to obtain standardized information about the status of a user’s consent to the use of cookies. This information is tracked using the complete delivery chain of the advertisements displayed. All advertisers or service providers involved in this procedure rely on information about the status of the consent. Basically, a large number of advertisers and service providers are involved in the display of advertising material.
    When a cookie consent manager works based on the IAB framework, it is first determined whether consent has actually been given. In a second step, the consent manager identifies which cookies and to what extent
    the user gave his consent. Based on the determination of the type and scope of the consent, the consent manager generates a so-called consent string. This consent string is created in the form of a cookie. In this way, consent managers can read the degree of consent of a user with the Jimdo Cookie Banner.

  • Jimdo Cookie Banner and its advantages at a glance

    Using a well thought-out Jimdo cookie notice is associated with several advantages for website operators as well as visitors and potential customers. A positive user experience plays an important role in marketing and search engine optimization. The user experience or user experience can be expressed in certain key figures. Here, for example, the length of stay, the acceptance rate and the bounce rate play a role. The key figure of the bounce rate should be kept as low as possible, while the acceptance rate and length of stay should be high. With a Jimdo Cookie Banner you help to achieve an attractive acceptance rate and a lower bounce rate. A Jimdo cookie notice thus makes an important contribution to the performance of your web shop . A high retention time and a low bounce rate are directly linked to the main goals of customer acquisition and customer loyalty.

    For their part, customers benefit from compliance with data protection regulations , while at the same time they benefit from legally secure shop operations. The positive user experience of your visitors contributes to higher conversions (converting visitors into customers). In this way, more visitors become long-term customers. Due to the simultaneous increase in customer satisfaction, you continue to benefit from customer loyalty. Likewise, search engines react favorably to a good user experience. User experience is a key ranking factor. Therefore, correspondingly optimized pages tend to be found higher up in the search result lists.

    A good consent manager gives you an overview of the current acceptance and bounce rates in real time at all times . On the one hand, you can see the current behavior of your customers and potential customers, while you can use the key figures to draw conclusions about your optimization potential.

Your benefits at a glance

    International alignment with the Jimdo cookie notice

  • Multilingualism and internationality make a modern consent manager fit for use in the entire GDPR area. As a shop operator, it is becoming increasingly important to focus on international customers in terms of competitiveness. It is therefore a matter of course for most providers to address customers in different countries in the respective languages. Ideally, the Jimdo Cookie Banner automatically adapts to the respective language of the customer. Consentmanager currently supports over 30 languages in which the Jimdo Cookie Notice can be displayed.

  • Jimdo cookie banners with responsive design

    Users are increasingly accessing online shops via mobile devices. A responsive adaptation to the device used and the corresponding operating system should therefore be standard for both the shop system and the Jimdo Cookie Banner. Ideally, the Jimdo cookie notice is automatically aligned to the devices used by your visitors to visit your shop. This includes adjusting the appearance of the Jimdo Cookie Banner to parameters such as screen size or operating system. Since the Jimdo cookie notice adapts responsively, the consent manager is suitable for almost all devices , such as tablets or smartphones from different manufacturers.

    The Jimdo Cookie Banner can thus be used in almost all access scenarios. Regardless of whether your customers and potential customers access your offer via desktop, app or mobile, this ensures legally compliant cookie consent management.

  • Compatibility of the consent manager

    Due to the large number of systems and proprietary solutions used, compatibility and interoperability are of great importance. The Consentmanager is characterized by being compatible with almost all common AdServers. Compatibility with the most important common shop systems is also given. Furthermore, the consent manager is compatible with all common tag managers and Google products.

    You can enjoy another advantage through the integrated A/B test procedures of the consent manager. With these test procedures, the Consent Manager offers you a valuable tool for the automated optimization of the Jimdo Cookie Banner. The A/B testing provides results that the consent manager uses to find the best possible settings and the optimal design for your Jimdo cookie notice.

    The numerous design options of the consent manager ensure customization. Thanks to the variety in the design selection , the Jimdo Cookie Banner can be individually designed. Nothing stands in the way of an adaptation to your own corporate design.

    Another advantage can be found in data security . Not only the legal aspect of data protection, but also the technical implementation of safe storage and use of the data is given. The consent manager helps to coordinate Jimdo and GDPR and stores the information on secure servers. Only European servers are used at Consentmanager. Thanks to automatic updates from the consent management provider, compliance with common security standards for the Jimdo cookie notice is guaranteed at all times.

    In addition to blocking cookies, a consent management provider also offers the advantage of general ad blocking . Advertising media that are used on the shop website can thus be effectively prevented until your customers have given their consent.

frequently asked Questions

Not sure if you need a CMP?

To help you with things like GDPR, CMP and consent, we’ve rounded up the most common questions here.

If the user does not consent to the use of cookies, it is not possible to transfer the corresponding data. If the user opts out on the Jimdo cookie banner, no other cookies will be created than those technically required to operate your online shop.

Since 2009, the data protection regulations of the EU have stipulated that visitors to a website must be asked for their consent before the first cookies can be created. In this way, users should have the option of preventing the creation and use of cookies. One problem was the implementation of this cookie consent in practice. This often happened at the expense of website visitors in the form of an opt-out: the cookies were basically created, while users can only decide against them. For users, the opt-in procedure makes more sense in terms of data protection: Cookies are generally not created and may only be used if the user opts for them. Before consent is given, only technically essential cookies are legal. After consent, the use of tracking and analysis cookies and comparable files is also permitted.

At the latest since the ECJ ruling, the explicit consent of the visitor must be available for all cookies that go beyond the pure technical operation of the site. The legislator stipulates that the first cookie may only be created once consent has been given. The only exceptions to this are cookies that are necessary for operation. Tracking and analysis cookies require consent. As the operator of the website, you must give your visitors the opportunity to object to the cookies, otherwise you will be legally vulnerable.

Cookie Consent refers to the consent of your customers and potential customers to the installation of cookies when visiting the website. Consent is requested via special software that displays a pop-up in the form of a Jimdo cookie notice. The Jimdo cookie banner appears as soon as one of your visitors reaches the website. Even before a visitor sees the actual content, he comes across the Jimdo Cookie Banner. Visitors can use this to give or deny their consent. You can also decide to what extent cookies may be created and processed. This is an opt-in procedure, which is mandatory against the background of the GDPR and the ECJ ruling.
