Implementing a cookie consent notice isn't a requirement on most Ghost sites, because Ghost doesn't set any non-essential cookies by default.

However, if you're using services on your site that use third-party cookies, such as advertising, analytics, or affiliate services, then you'll need to consider adding a cookie banner, to ensure your site complies with global privacy laws, including GDPR.

There are two ways to integrate a cookie notice on your Ghost site:

  • Integrate with a cookie banner tool like CookieYes (paid, setup in a few minutes)
  • Implement a cookie notice directly into your Ghost theme (free, requires editing code)
