Look & Feel: Enable and customize the privacy notification banner

In this article

When enabled, the privacy notification on public pages informs the visitors about the use of cookies and any other privacy-related issues. The alert can be dismissed by users, and a cookie is set to prevent users from seeing the banner alert on any public page for 180 days. Although we do provide default language for your convenience, the text of the alert is fully customizable. You can also include additional info in a popup modal when users click on a "Read More" link. 

The privacy notification can be positioned either at the top or bottom of the page, depending upon your preference.
