NOTE: This feature has already been added to the 2.4.1 release - see ticket #12180. The purpose of this copied ticket is simply so that we remember that documentation has been added to 2.4, but not to 2.5 yet!


For compliance with European laws about data collection, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we should notify public users how AtoM uses cookies and why, and what what user data is collected (e.g. IP address) and why.

Requirement 1 - Public cookie/privacy policy notification

  1. Show a notification to all users when they first visit an AtoM website explaining that AtoM uses cookies
  2. The notification must include a link to the "privacy-policy" static page (see below) See https://www.europeana.eu/portal/en for an example of a cookie notification banner
  3. Include an "OK" or "Accept" button on the banner (I prefer this to the "X" on Europeana as it's more explicit about granting consent) to accept the policy and close the notification for the rest of the user's session (use cookie to track acceptance)
  4. Add administrator setting to toggle cookie notification on (default) or off.
  5. Add administrator setting to change the cookie notification text (allow creating hyperlinks).

Requirement 2 - Add default privay-policy static page and content

  1. Add data fixture and migration script to add a "Privacy Policy" static page to AtoM with default content, the page should explain why we use cookies and what data is collected by AtoM and why. Again https://www.europeana.eu/portal/en/rights/privacy.html is an example privacy policy we can imitate.
  2. The above cookie notification will link to this privacy-policy page by default
