Step by step guide for installing Clym on any website. Please note - if your website is built on one of the providers below, we have specific step-by-step instructions for that platform.
Installing Clym's widget will help facilitate compliance on your website with several data privacy laws around the globe. Here is a quick 2 minute video showing you how to install Clym’s compliance widget onto your website. Below the video, you will also find step-by-step instructions in written form. If you feel this is a task better suited for your webmaster or developer, please send them this link, along with the email instructions you received from Clym.
Installing Clym on your website is a 3-step process:
- Copy / paste the Clym Widget code
- Add an Embed HTML element to your footer
- Repeat the process with the links for "Privacy center" and "Do not sell or share my personal information"
Before you get started, make sure you have at hand the Clym widget code and the links for "Privacy center" and "Do not sell or share my personal information". You should have received them via email or you can copy them from your Clym Admin account.
Before you begin, please click here if your website was built using Wordpress, Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, Zyro, Shopify, Hubspot, Ucraft, Webflow, Duda, or Strikingly. If your website was not built using one of these platforms, please proceed with the steps below.
1. Copy / paste the Clym Widget code
Please open the area where you edit the code for your website's header. Paste your Clym embed code at the very top of your header after the <head> tag, above any of your other scripts. You may add space between your scripts by hitting the enter or return key.
Note that, in order to facilitate compliance, this script has to be inserted as the first script under the "head" section of your website. Failure to do so might allow third party scripts to be loaded on your website and, depending on regulation, that might result in non-compliance. For easy viewing, you may leave space in between the Clym script and any following scripts or code.
2. Copy / paste the links for "Privacy Center"
Return to your email or Clym admin account. First, copy the Privacy Center button/link embed code.
Return to wherever you are editing your site's footer code. Paste the embed code from Clym for the Privacy Center button/link.
3. Copy / paste the links for "Do not sell or share my personal information"
Return to your email or Clym admin account to repeat the steps for the Do not sell or share button/link embed code. First, copy the embed code, and return to wherever you are editing your site's footer code. Paste the embed code from Clym for the Do not sell or share button/link embed code.
It’s all done! Clym's widget will now display on your website based on how you setup your widget layout.
Please note that based on your geolocation, you may not see the privacy widget. To view Clym on your site, click Privacy Center or Do not sell or share my personal information to open the widget. View more ways to verify the installation here.
