Add cookie & tracking alert to my website

Like most website building tools, New Website Builder uses “cookies,” small data files, to track visitors' movements across a site. Under the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation, websites are now required to give visitors from all EU countries the option of accepting the placement of data files in their browsers or leaving your site.

Adding a Cookies & Tracking section gives your visitors a way to do exactly that.
example cookie notice

Note: The Cookies & Tracking section works hand-in-hand with New Website Builder's Privacy Policy section.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account and open your product. (Need help logging in?)
  2. Click Edit/Edit Site. (If you're using the New Website Builder Online Store, click Manage Store, then Website in the top green bar.)
  3. Click the Site Settings panel.
    click Site Settings panel
  4. Click the Cookies & Tracking panel.
    click Site Settings panel
  5. The Title, Message, and Button Label fields are already filled in, but you can customize any of the three. The Message field works well for a short cookie policy. If you have a longer, detailed privacy policy, see Add privacy policy to my website.

    Note: The How it works link explains GoDaddy's own privacy policy under the GDPR.

  6. When you're ready, click Publish.
  7. To see how the Cookie Policy window will appear to your site visitors, click View Site.
    click View Site button
  8. The Cookie Policy window — with any custom text you created — appears on every page until the visitor clicks Accept & Close.
