I tested this app. Unfortunately it is not possible to create a cookie banner which is GDPR conform. It's not possible to give visitors the option to decline optional cookies.
Therefore there is a risk of getting fined.

Hi Maldives Dreams team,

Thank you for your feedback about EU Cookie Bar – and I'm sorry this app didn't mean your expectations!

Just for full clarification and transparency, using this app alone does not guarantee full compliance with GDPR. Our app is designed to pass user consent to Shopify. Each Shopify merchant is responsible for handling its own GDPR obligations.

https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/your-account/privacy/GDPR

Our app uses AI to pass consented information to Shopify via their consent tracking API. Your customers can give consent by clicking the button or click your shop’s privacy policy page for instructions on how to disable cookies.

Each Shopify merchant is responsible for posting their own privacy, GDPR policy and instructions on how to disable cookies in their privacy policy. This is noted on our app description and screenshots, however I just edited it to make it more clear.

Thanks again for your feedback and I reached out over email to help make things right.

Cheers,
James

Whilst the app was user friendly and at first appeared to be working correctly, we have noticed that the app is stopping Google Analytics from tracking conversions

Works perfectly on the mobile but the button 'got it' isn't selectable when using a PC or a Mac.
As it's a free app, the reply I received was that no help could be provided.

We sent a question to the support and the bluntly reply that they can't provide an answer because the app was free. We rather have a paid with support than not having support when technical issues happen

Hi there, totally understand 🙂 We provide the app for free to over 100,000 Shopify Merchants along with our server bills to keep the app up and running each month. I'm afraid we can only offer community and help doc support for this app as a result.

Here's another paid alternative instead

Hope that helps 🙌
