Seeking Guidance on Implementing GDPR-Compliant Server-Side Cookies on Webflow Hosting

Hello Webflow community!

I hope you’re all doing well. I am currently facing a challenge regarding the implementation of server-side cookies on Webflow hosting while ensuring compliance with GDPR regulations. I would greatly appreciate your insights and advice on how to tackle this issue effectively.

Here’s the problem I’m encountering: As we know, GDPR mandates that websites must obtain user consent before setting any non-essential cookies. I am working on a project hosted on Webflow and need to handle server-side cookies responsibly, ensuring compliance with these regulations. However, I haven’t been able to find a straightforward solution within Webflow’s hosting environment.

I understand that Webflow predominantly focuses on client-side rendering, which makes it somewhat complex to handle server-side cookies in a GDPR-compliant manner. I have explored various options, such as integrating consent management platforms and adding custom code snippets. Unfortunately, I haven’t achieved the desired outcome.

Ideally, I would like to present users with a cookie consent banner or popup, allowing them to provide or deny consent for non-essential cookies. Subsequently, I would need to handle server-side cookies based on their preferences.

If anyone has successfully implemented a GDPR-compliant server-side cookie management solution within the Webflow hosting ecosystem, I would be extremely grateful for your guidance. Have you come across any third-party tools or workarounds that could seamlessly integrate with Webflow and assist in fulfilling these requirements?

Thank you all for your support and valuable input. Your expertise in this matter would be immensely helpful.

What are you trying to do?

Even if Webflow offered support for server-side code execution, the benefit of delivering HTTPonly cookies to the client would be pretty limited. Bob would still only be able to access his information on one system, even if he logs into another one.

In essence you wouldn’t see any greater advantage than client-side cookies or localStorage already provide.
