Please see the New EU Cookie Compliance module  as the name of this project has recently changed.

The EU Cookie Compliance module enables a website to meet the requirements of the EU Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications regarding the use of cookies.

If a website makes use of cookies other than for the temporary storage of data while a transaction is in progress, the user must be informed and given the opportunity to decline the use of cookies. The site must also include an explanation of the cookies that are used.

This is a port from the Drupal module of the same name.

##How it works.

The module displays a pop-up at the bottom or at the top of pages to make users aware of the fact that cookies are being set. The user may then give his/her consent or move to a page that provides more details. Consent is given by the user pressing the agree button or by continuing to browse the website. Once consent is given another pop-up appears with a thank you message.

The module provides a settings page where the pop-up can be customised. There are also template files for the pop-ups that can be overridden by your theme.


This is an initial incomplete port of the module.


Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at https://backdropcms.org/guide/modules.


Navigate to module settings at admin/config/system/eu_cookie_compliance.

Current porting to Backdrop

Maintainers for Drupal:

  • Sven Berg Ryen (svenryen)
  • id.tornado
  • Marcin Pajdzik (marcin-pajdzik)
  • Achton Smidt Winther (achton)

This port to Backdrop would not, of course, be possible without all the work done by the developers and maintainers of the Drupal module.
