Accept All and Reject All Button, Refuse Button

Cookie compliance requirements change rapidly, it is a challenge to stay up-to-date with countries guidelines and regional directives.

French Data Protection Authority (CNIL): Accept and reject buttons need to be equally conspicuous. You must ensure that you offer an equal opportunity to say “yes” and “no” to cookies. The commonly used “Accept All” and “Cookie Settings” buttons are NOT sufficient.

German federated states explicitly require that a Reject button is displayed with equal prominence to the Accept button.

Position an 'X' or reject button within the banner by which users can continue navigating without consenting to the use of non-technical cookies.

UK ICO: No "reject all" button is mandatory although preferable. A consent mechanism that emphasises “agree” or “allow” over “reject” or “block” represents a non-compliant approach, as the online service is influencing users towards the “accept” option.

According to the AEPD: either "Accept" and "Refuse" buttons OR "Accept" and link to settings.

Accept and reject buttons need to be equally conspicuous for the Irish DPA.

Preferable to have the reject all button.

Not specified requiring the use of the Reject button.
