    I want to build my new website for a part-time freelance business (in the EU) using the Art Gallery theme (1.3.0.0).

    As a publii user with only very little knowledge in coding and scripts I didn’t find out which options of the Art Gallery theme set cookies at all, and if so of which type. For a start, I want to ensure that I avoid any cookies and can leave away the cookie banner.

    For that reason I would disable the Newsletter, the Follow and Share buttons, the Comments, until I understand how to add the necessary scripts.

    But what about

    • Google Custom Search: does it use any type of cookies?
    • Gallery: any type cookies (if I do not use the share button)?
    • And finally, does the main code of the Arts Gallery theme and / or publii require any cookies?

    Sorry for this long – and maybe stupid – question, but I didn’t find this information in the user documentation (except for Disqus), and I need to ensure GDPR compliance.

    you could use the html code of the super-duper-fast 1kb commento.io cookie-free comments system below each post and it works perfectly for each post, though the developer is not replying to any emails for the last 5 months even from paying customers. he is still maintaining the commento system though. for stats, you could use the cookie-free again 1kb plausible.io. for search you can wait till the year end for publii’s own search plugin which will not need any cookies I think. don’t know about the gallery, never used it.

    Here is a sample of how fast the cookieless commento comments load and it takes mere milliseconds for the comment to get posted after submitting it: omheals.org/alignment/#reply.

    Thank you, Nitaai. This will be helpful when I might add comments to my website at a later stage.

    I can wait with search function, as my new site will be small until end of the year. And I might get away without stats, for a start.

    But I still do not know whether the standard code of the Arts Gallery theme uses cookies. My impression that it is not, but I am not sure where I could check this to be sure and write a correct privacy notice.

    Hi Patrick,

    These are all fantastic questions!

    Another privacy-friendly commenting option is Cusdis, which doesn’t track users, and you can even self-host it: https://cusdis.com/

    For stats, the following apps are also privacy-friendly and easy to implement:

    In order to display the built-in Cookies management solution within the Art Gallery theme (and I believe all default Publii themes to-date), a ‘required’ cookie is required. I don’t think Gallery causes an additional cookie to display.

    Based in the UK, I find the Publii approach ideal. On the Art Gallery theme-based website I built for a client some time ago at: https://www.touchstonerenard.com/ , this site only uses Google Analytics (GA) – in which tracking data is anonymised so doesn’t really come under the GDPR requirements.

    If you didn’t want to include Google Analytics, then you would just have the single ‘required’ tracking cookie necessary to display the cookies box. That’s the simple solution.

    Plus, if later, you ever did want to include additional functionality that did rely on one or more cookies, the default Publii cookies box includes the flexibility to allow you do that.
