Tracking tools help you see how your website performs. Mailchimp’s cookie banner gives your visitors a simple way to acknowledge your site's use of tracking and opt-in to our internal data collection feature, Track with Mailchimp.
In this article, you’ll learn how to add a cookie notification banner to your website in Mailchimp.
How it works
The banner is customizable and will appear at the bottom of every page on your website. Visitors can dismiss the banner by clicking the X icon or the optional Accept button. After a visitor dismisses the notification, it will not appear again for up to one year.
You can choose to enable or disable the cookie banner on your website at any time. If you activate Track With Mailchimp, the cookie banner will be enabled by default, but you’ll need to manually activate the opt-out link if you’d like to include one.
Activate the cookie banner
When you want to include a cookie banner on your website, you can activate it in the web page editor. If you’ve turned on Track with Mailchimp, you’ll have the option to include an opt-in link.
To use a cookie banner on your website, follow these steps.
Click the Website icon.
On your website dashboard, click Edit Site.
In the Manage Site menu, click Cookie Banner.

Excellent work! People who visit your website for the first time will see a notification banner. The notification banner settings you choose will apply to every page on your website.
