Here's a step-by-step guide to implementing Cookie Consent v2 on your website:


Step 1: Understand Cookie Consent v2

- Familiarize yourself with what Cookie Consent v2 entails. It's a tool that allows you to inform users about the use of cookies on your website and obtain their consent before cookies are stored on their devices.


- Learn about the features and customization options available with Cookie Consent v2 to tailor it to your website's needs.

Step 3: Install the Cookie Consent Script
