    I have the same issue. It is really frustrating that squarespace has not been able to come up with a cookie opt-in solution yet.

    Thanks for your response.
    I guess the current Cookie Banner options cover most non European situations for GDPR, but in terms of businesses trading in or with European countries, the current options do not adequately meet the requirements for GDPR according tot he legislation (from what I understand of it). Using a third party to fill these requirements (at least in my mind), only further complicates the problem and would be better resolved within Squarespace itself as additional Banner options etc, but having said that, it depends on the needs of the business and whether any additional options would actually cover all use cases, so I can see why it's perhaps not likely to happen.
    To my point, it would be at least nice for the end user of the website to be able to 'hide' or close the pop-up banner with the simple addition of a 'close' / 'X' button on the banner itself.

    WEBApublic got a reaction from Steffi in Cookie Banner - Close/Hide button   
    Dear @JGraham,
    we at www.weber-packaging.de have the same problem.
    The GDPR (§ DSGVO, in German) wants us to show a much more detailed user experience regarding the cookie banner. I think the Squarespace team will provide a solution as soon as a lot of clients like us circle members do need, want and ask for that.
    A letter from an association before us says:

    Notes on cookie banners 
    Berlin, 01 November 2019
    We take the ECJ ruling of 01.10.2019 and the previous statement of the German data protection authorities as an opportunity to give you information on the use of cookies on your online presence.
    What has happened?
    §15 Abs. 3 Telemediengesetz (TMG) provides for an "opt-out regulation" for cookies. Accordingly, cookies may first be set, but must be able to be deactivated by the user. Once the DSGVO became effective, there was controversy as to whether this paragraph could still be applied.
    The Federal Government was of the opinion that the cookie information obligations under the Telemedia Act had already been implemented in conformity with EU law. The DSGVO, however, stands above laws and legal systems of the member states under Union and national law. In questions of interpretation or contradictions, the DSGVO applies logically.
    The supervisory authorities, as well as the European Court of Justice in its ruling of 1 October 2019, therefore make it clear that the TMG does not apply here and that the setting of cookies requires express consent.
