By default, the app is set to show in the following countries: EEA/EU counties + Brazil and California. You need to make sure you have enabled it for the countries where your business is operating and such requirement is enforced by law. First step after enabling the Cookie Consent Bar is making sure to enable it for the specific region you are interested in being compliant for, i.e. GDPR (Europe, EEA, and Brazil), CCPA (California), or both GDPR + CCPA.

5.Check the configuration of the GDPR/CCPA Compliance pages on your store

Make sure to add the GDPR/CCPA Compliance pages as a link to your footer. This way your website visitors will be able to easily navigate to them and request all kinds of different information for their account data (account edit, data report, deletion request etc). For this, please check questions 12 and 13 from our FAQ. Once this is done, you can test the GDPR/CCPA requests yourself.

We would also advise adding this to your store’s Privacy Policy page. More on how you can do that you will be able to find in question 11 in our FAQ:
