Consent Banner for Publishers

Introduction

As a publisher, it is your responsibility to obtain cookie consent for Awin's tracking.

To help you comply with the recent updates to data regulations, Awin have created two solutions for you:

This page is all about the Consent Banner Plug-in for publishers, which is a JavaScript-based application for your website

To activate the plug-in, go to Support > Create New Ticket then raise a ticket or go to Support > Contact in order to send an email with the subject 'Consent Banner Activation'.


Disclaimer:

The Consent Banner Plug-in is only suitable for obtaining consent for Awin cookies.


The Consent Banner Plug-in is provided free of charge on the basis that it is provided 'as is'. AWIN LTD does not make any warranties that the Consent Banner Plug-in is fit for any purpose, is free from defects or that it can enable compliance with any laws or regulations. Implementing the Consent Banner Plug-in on your website does not guarantee that you or your company are complying with any laws and regulations. Only you can decide what to do to ensure that you are complying with any laws and regulations that may apply to you or the website you operate. AWIN LTD is not responsible or liable for any losses you may suffer as a result of your implementation or use of the Consent Banner Plug-in. If you choose to implement or use the Consent Banner Plug-in you do so at you own risk. If you don't agree with any of the above, you must not download, implement or use the Consent Plug-in.


How the Plug-in Works

The first time the plug-in loads for someone visiting your website, it shows up as a banner overlay. The visitor can click 'Accept' to confirm they agree to the use of cookies, or they can click 'Learn more...' where they will have the option to decline the use of cookies.

Installing the Consent Banner Plug-in

Copy the script below, replacing 'xxxxxx' with your Publisher ID, and include the following just before the closing HTML body tag of your webpages:


<script>
 AwinBannerConfig = {
 publisherId:xxxxxx,
 };
</script>
<script src="https://www.dwin2.com/consent.js"></script>
</body>


This script should be added to all publicly accessible pages of your site.

Please note - the following meta tag sets the Consent Banner Plug-in to display correctly on desktop computers as well as mobile devices such as tablets and mobile phones.

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">


Important: Consent Status

Once activated, your default consent status will be set to 'no consent obtained'. This means that if we don't have the consent status of each visitor (e.g. you didn't tell us or 3rd party cookies are blocked) and there's no click URL consent then we do not track those visitors.

Alternative Consent Manager Tools

Awin recognises that Publishers may wish to use different tools to capture consent. To aid this, we have developed the Consent Signals Framework to help you notify Awin of the consent obtained.

Configuring the Consent Banner Plug-in

The plug-in offers the following customisation options:

  • Site privacy policy link.
  • Banner position and colours.
  • Font family, colour, and size.
  • Notice language.


The custom settings are specified in the load configuration of the banner.

  • The style settings are defined as they would be for CSS.
  • The position can be 'top' or 'bottom', by default or if unspecified it will be set as 'bottom'.


An example of a fully customised banner would be:

<script>
AwinBannerConfig = {
    language:'en-GB',
    publisherId:xxxxxx,
    position:'top',
    bannerStyles: {
      backgroundColor:'#23282c',
      fontFamily:'sans',
      color:'white',
      fontSize:'10px',
      fontWeight:'400',
      textAlign:'left',
      textTransform: 'lowercase',
      letterSpacing: '1px',
      lineHeight: '1',
      header:{
        fontFamily:'sans',
        color:'white',
        fontSize:'10px',
        fontWeight:'400',
        textAlign:'left',
        textTransform: 'lowercase',
        letterSpacing: '1px',
        lineHeight: '1',
      },
      learnMore: {

        fontSize:'10px',
        fontWeight:'400',
        textAlign:'left',
        textTransform: 'lowercase',
        letterSpacing: '1px',
