Comply With EU Cookie Policy and add Custom Notification Bar
EU cookie law

While we use Blogger platform then we have to comply with all terms and conditions of Google Blogger. But many of us don’t have basic knowledge about that. You will see most of the terms and conditions are written on Blogger Help site. But most of the newbie are not aware of that. But some important notification from Google will be appear on your Blogger Dashboard. Some of them are not important and some of them are very important that you must comply with that.

cookie notification

Blogger Users recently might have seen a notification on your Blogger Dashboard about European Union (EU) laws require you to give EU visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also required you to obtain EU visitor’s consent.

This law requires all blog publishers must have to give information towards EU visitors about cookies used on your blog. This notification has automatically added by Google thus publisher display cookies used to European visitors. Actually this will help to comply with the European Union regulations.

However Blog publisher's responsibility to ensure that the Notification bar must be clearly visible on the blog.  And you are not allowed to stop displaying the Notification bar by using any CSS or JavaScript.

The main condition is to display the Cookie information through a notification bar in your blog. But this will only for EU visitors.

What is Cookies?

Cookies are data or information in the form of text from a website a visitor’s visit which is stored in the web browser. Data or information helps the site to recall information about your visit. As a result, when you visit same site next time then it will be easier and the site will be lighter to be accessed. Because, that site already loaded on your browsers.

Why we should Comply with EU Laws?

For using these cookies in different countries has different rules and regulation. Recently EU has Impose identical rules and the EU countries have laws that regulate the use of cookies on the internet. As a result EU forced to Google that their Blog user must be follow their regulation. Those who are using Google AdSense they must strictly follow this rules and regulations.

What will happen if you don’t comply with EU regulation?

Well this is a good query that if you don’t comply with EU regulation what will happen then? A site which does not ask for permission to use cookies of EU visitors, then such actions would be considered illegal. So first you have to display the cookie information bar and with this, the site asks for permission to use cookies of EU visitors. If the visitors become agree with that, then a visit to the site should be continued.

However, if visitors are not agree to share their information and don’t give permission to a site for using cookies then visitors have the right to not continue their visit on that site. As a result your site will not in risk of violating the EU law.

Does our Blog Display Cookie notification automatically?

Blogger user may become annoyed for different rules and regulation and now thinking that they have to add another JavaScript based widget to display notification. But don’t worry, because Google hosted all Blog will automatically display notification about cookies. You don’t have to display any notification bar that occupies your site space. But if you wish you can use custom notification bar for using EU visitor’s cookies.

If you are using blogspot blog, then automatically your own blog EU Notification Bar Cookies of Blogger, as well as that already use a custom domain.

How to see notification Bar?

You may think that you can’t see the notification bar and your Blog is not functioning properly. But you are wrong. For checking the Notification Bar Cookies EU, to simply you have to replace blogspot .com with country specific domain suffix such as

.au, .de, .fi, .fr, .jp, .kr, .nl and .se
  • For example
  • And now replace it with below suffix-
default notification bar

As a result instantly EU and display the Notification Bar Blogger Cookies can be modified.

In case of Custom Domain you can also see the Cookies notification bar. For example my blog URL is
  • /

And now just added which is display another page that will verify you that are you human or robot. Just write the CAPTCHA and you will see your site with cookies notification bar.

But for those who use a custom domain blogspot and also use the service CloudFlare to handle cookies, then the Notification Bar Cookies Blogger EU will not appear. And I told before that if you use Google Adsense, then this will be at risk for the sustainability of Adsense blog. In this case you must use custom Notification bar for using cookie information.

Some Blogger may think that they have privacy policy page but that is not enough for asking permission. Because not every visitors will visit privacy policy page regularly. So it must be visible by a custom notification bar thus visitors can easily give permission to use cookies to that site.
