Joomla, the GDPR and the cookies

  • The GDPR is the regulation for data protection. Put simply, it stipulates that user data may not be collected and processed without consent. Users also have a right to be “forgotten”. This means that, for example, customers of online shops can request the deletion of their data.

    The GDPR is a problem for the Internet. The use of cookies is essential on the Internet. These are functionally almost indispensable.

    But cookies can do much more. For example, they track users across the web and create profiles in this way. They are then called marketing cookies. Many website operators do not even know exactly how many of the programs are actually running on their site, since new cookies are added with advertisements. The GDPR creates a constraint and a problem. Users must receive a Joomla cookie notice that they can accept or decline. At the same time, this should also list all the relevant programs so that visitors can allow individual ones if necessary. This is where the consent manager comes into play.

    Our Joomla Cookie Banner Plugin is therefore an important help for many websites.

  • Automatic cookie crawls with our Joomla GDPR plugin

    Our Joomla Cookie Notice has an integrated robot or “spider”. This automatically carries out daily crawls on your website and thus finds all running cookies. As a Joomla GDPR plugin, the system then carries out a check as to whether the programs are compatible with the law. Our Joomla Cookie Notice then sends you all the finds and classifies them independently.

  • Custom designs and customizations

    It is in the nature of things that the Joomla cookie notice should match the design of your site. You can therefore customize our Joomla Cookie Plugin. This affects the design as well as adjustments to the display in detail. For example, you can use your own designs or integrate your company logo. Alternatively, we also offer you ready-made designs so that you can start immediately. You can also individually determine the position of the box that contains the cookie notice for the Joomla site. You can also specify whether the web page should be hidden while the notice is visible. Whether this comes with an accept and reject button or only has the former is also up to you. The same applies to whether there is a close button.

    Cookie Consent International

    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.

About Joomla as CMS

Joomla has been around since 2005. It sprang from the Mambo project. Right from the start, the goal was for people to be able to create and edit their own websites without any previous knowledge worth mentioning. Incidentally, the phrase cookie notice for Joomla is also much older than the GDPR. In the early days, it wasn’t just a Joomla cookie plugin, but an explanatory text to help beginners.

To this day, Joomla’s core goal hasn’t changed: simplicity. User-friendly operation, easy expandability (e.g. with a Joomla GDPR plugin) and a flexible design are therefore considered to be the major advantages.

Your benefits at a glance

    Easy integration of the consent manager

  • Since it is a Joomla cookie plugin, the integration is very easy. Our Joomla Cookie Notice can therefore be easily displayed for desktop websites, mobile websites (with responsive design) and AMP websites. The integration can optionally also be done via TagManager. There is also an inAPP Software Development Kit (SDK) for iOS and Android.

  • Opt-in for Joomla sites or opt-out – what does it mean and what
    is applicable?

    Users must go through the opt-in process on Joomla pages to consent to cookies. Unlike opt-out, where cookies are subsequently excluded, opt-in for Joomla means that they must be explicitly allowed. Our solution works via opt-in for your Joomla site and complies with the requirements of the GDPR.

    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.

  • High compatibility of Joomla Cookie Plugin

    The compatibility of our Joomla Cookie Notice in interaction with other tools is very important to us. Of course, this applies from a legal and technical point of view. Our Joomla Cookie Plugin is therefore compatible with practically all ad servers and data management platforms (DMP). The same applies to Facebook pixels or remarketing. It supports the manufacturers on the Google ATP list, which includes third-party providers certified by Google. It is also compatible with various of the company’s products – for example DFP/Google AdManager, Google AdSense, Google Analytics, Google TagManager and many more.

Opt-in for your Joomla site and more

Joomla Cookie Notice offers clear reporting

A good reporting system is essential . For example, how many users choose to opt-in on the Joomla site? Our Joomla Cookie Notice therefore breaks down the traffic with consent, the page views, the consent screens that appear with the choices made (including customized choices) and the bounce rate. The latter is the bounce rate of visitors who leave your website again.

Our Joomla Cookie Plugin also allows the reports to be filtered or grouped. For example, you can differentiate based on user origin, date or device class. For example, it is noticeable whether visitors with mobile devices decide to opt-in to your Joomla site particularly rarely. Of course, all reports can be exported.

    GDPR and CCPA

  • It was already mentioned above: In addition to the GDPR, our Joomla cookie notice also complies with the CCPA . Although this is similar to the GDPR in many respects, there are differences in some areas. However, you don’t have to worry about these. This concerns, for example, opt-out and opt-in for the Joomla site. In principle, the CCPA also allows opt-out solutions.


    There is no question that you need a Joomla cookie notice. The law is clear in this regard. You should therefore now implement this quickly, easily and legally with our Joomla Cookie Plugin. Best from Consentmanager!

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.

Joomla is a CMS for simplicity that can be used without prior knowledge. The users are also often beginners who are just starting out and are looking for flexible solutions that bill fairly. The Joomla Cookie Plugin has to comply with this – that’s why we designed our Cookie Notice for Joomla from the ground up to do just that.

We charge for our solution based on usage. The more often the Joomla cookie notice is displayed, the more you have to pay. We have set up special packages for this. With a maximum of 10,000 page views, you can use our Joomla content manager for free. With up to 2.5 million views 50 euros per month. If you exceed the number of views defined in the package, you will be charged EUR 0.02 for each additional 1,000 visitors. The Enterprise package is aimed at large companies with up to 35 million visitors per month. This costs 695 euros.

CCPA applies to all users in California. A company that processes data from Californians must therefore comply correctly with CCPA. The limit for this is relatively low: just 50,000 data records per year are enough. Since a website already processes many data sets in a single visit, the CCPA very often applies to a large number of websites.

Joomla installation cookies are the programs that are also installed when the site is set up. These are the functional cookies that are essential for using the website (and the CMS).
