- Prior loading blocking and async loading after consent


This means that using Clym on your website (loaded via Javascript as an essential part of your website, thus no consent must be given to load Clym), any third-party functionality that uses cookies will be disabled until the user gives explicit consent. Let’s use Google Analytics as an example.


Here’s how it works: Google Analytics is one of the most used tools for analyzing the traffic that occurs on a website. Usually you are requested to include the analytics Javascript code in every page of your website, so it can track your visitors. But with the new regulations, you cannot use Google Analytics to count the current visitor UNLESS the user gave you EXPLICIT consent to use it.


Now, to block the script from loading in the visitor’s browser, you’ll remove it from your page and add it to your Clym account. Now every new user that visits your website will be asked to accept the Analytics script, and only after receiving consent Clym will inject the script in the page. Once accepted, on every other future visit, Clym will keep track of the user’s previous consent settings and load third party tags accordingly.


- Embedded content


Embedded content like Imgur images or Youtube videos also use cookies to track visitors. That’s why you need to get consent for this type of content too. So before loading a video hosted on a different domain, you must obtain the user’s explicit consent. Clym gives you the option to do just that. You can convert any embed  code into a Clym  that will only load the contents after the user has accepted the cookies. After accepting, all the embedded content from the same domain will be directly loaded. The settings will be remembered by the Clym widget and automatically synced when a change occurs.


- Location based preferences


Different countries have different laws, so you can customize the way the consent loader works. As an example: if your visitor comes from a country that allows cookies to be loaded prior to consent, but asks for an option to remove them, Clym allows you to set this exact behavior. The cookies will load initially but the user is given the option to OPT-OUT. Or maybe your visitor comes from a country that is outside the scope of any cookie law. You can set Clym to not even show up for these visitors, but load every third-party cookie.


- Consent management


Every time a user interacts with the Clym widget to accept or reject cookies, a consent receipt is created. The receipt can be viewed by both the visitor, and the website owner, to make proof of the user’s consent. It contains information about every cookie you have previously configured in Clym and the user’s preference.


- Policy, Terms and other Documents


You can create all your documents like Cookie Policy, Privacy Policy, Terms of Services and others, in the Clym admin interface. The documents can be individually loaded inside the widget, embedded anywhere in your website, or accessible via direct link. This way you can load the contents in different places, but when changes are needed, you will only need to modify in one place.


- Subjects' requests management


According to the new regulations, you need to provide your visitors a way for them to create requests like data erasure, or other types of requests. Using Clym you’re not only giving them a way to make requests, but you have a way to manage all of these requests in a single place. Working on the requests as well as closing them will also notify the user about the current status of the request.


- Process definition


Subjects’ requests might need to pass through more than a person or a department to be considered done. You can define processes for your custom needs, assigning responsible people for every stage of a request. With every status change, the current responsible will be notified to further manage the request.



- Widget customization


The appearance of the widget can be customized to meet your website’s design. There are different layouts according to every need, and colors can match your main theme. The policies and documents can also include custom css to match your preferences.
