GDPR Opt-out page
What Is GDPR (And Why Should I Care)?
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was passed by the EU Parliament in April of 2016. Replacing the Data Protection Directive from the 90s, it’s the biggest legislative change in data Privacy regulation to take place the last 20 years.
In a gist, GDPR was created to standardize data Privacy laws throughout Europe—and to put greater protection on the data Privacy of EU citizens.

The following shows you how you can implement a gdpr compliant tracking cookie opt-out page.
Want An Opt-Out Page?
An opt-out page is a webpage that sets a cookie created by a website on your browser to block that same website from installing future cookies. The opt-out cookie tells the website not to install other opentracker cookies in the browser. This prevents opentracker from tracking your page visits within a website or among websites within a companies network. The drawback to using opt-out cookies is that they are site specific. They can only block cookies from a specific server and won’t block cookies from other websites. To do generalized blocking, you can manage your cookies via your browser’s cookie settings.
We at Opentracker have developed an opt-out page that you can put on your site to allow your website visitors to opt-out from tracking by opentracker. The html code is displayed underneath:
<html> <head> <title>GDPR opt-out</title> <script src="//script.opentracker.net/?site=www.opentracker.net"></script> <script src="//script.opentracker.net/opt-out/script.js" id="opt-out-script" show-account="true"></script> <link href="//script.opentracker.net/opt-out/style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" /> </head> <body> <div id="htmlContent"></div> </body> </html>
Understanding The Above Html CodeThe first line of code loads the opentracker.net script. The one above is just an example. You will need to use the script that you have implemented in your site. You can got this when you signed up to opentracker, and you can get a copy by logging in and resending your script. It takes the form:
<script src="//script.opentracker.net/?site=www.opentracker.net"></script>You will need to replace the site attribute (in this case www.opentracker.net) with your own registered site. Things will not work otherwise.
The next line will load the script and stylesheet to show the opt-out dialog:
<script src="//script.opentracker.net/opt-out/script.js" id="opt-out-script" show-account="true"> <link href="//script.opentracker.net/opt-out/style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />
These lines don’t need to change. If you want to style things differently, you can craft your own css file or items.
You can have the content be generated in your own design by adding these lines of code to a basic page. Take a look at how things look in Opentracker’s website by clicking here for an opt-out form within a site’s design.
