Add a Cookie Banner to Your Square Online Site
A cookie banner (or preference centre) is the consent management module on websites that allows users to give their consent to which cookies and trackers they will allow on their device. For example, in the European Union, websites and apps that store or access information on a user’s device (e.g. through cookies) must ask for and obtain their explicit consent to do so.
