New Cookie Banner

Cookie Banner Cookiebot
"Cookiebot" Cookie Banner

Cookiebot will be implemented as our new cookie banner in order to be GDPR compliant. It provides the following features:

  • Opt-out of specific cookies
  • Management of cookies (classification, monthly scan of domains)
  • Automatic cookie policy text

The cookie banner is provided by "Cookiebot" which provides standardized texts in several languages that comply with the data protection regulations.

More Font-Styles

There are now new font styles available for you to choose from:

  • Colored Text: blue text on white background
  • Marked Text: white text on blue background
  • Muted Text: grey text on white background
  • Small Text (to use instead of the supercript text for e.g. footnotes)

Social Media Sharing

Social media platforms

Additional options

In some countries, e.g. Russia, some social media platforms are not allowed. Therefore we have created the option to hide some platforms instead of having the standardized options. Those are the current sharing options:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Odnoklassniki
  • VKontakte
  • E-Mail

Bug Fixes

Additionally, some bugs were fixed as well:

Contact forms

  • Specific error messages when required fields are not filled in
  • Errors when submitting contact forms


  • Missing navigation in Experience Editor and Preview modes
