Cookie Manager

Helps with managaing first-party client side cookies to adhere to CCPA and GDPR Cookie regulations

Contents

Installation

Install the package as follows:

yarn add @coinbase/cookie-manager

npm install @coinbase/cookie-manager

pnpm install @coinbase/cookie-manager

Introduction

@coinbase/cookie-manager helps manage the following first party client side cookie categories:

  • Necessary Cookies: Cookies that are necessary for the site to the function
  • Performance Cookies: Cookies that impact site performance and help mesaure performance
  • Functional Cookies: Cookies to improve the functionality of the site
  • Targeting Cookies: Cookies used for advertising and ad targeting

The preferences is stored as cm_eu_preference cookie in case the user is from EU or as cm_default_preference cookie in any other case

A cm_default_preference cookie looks like the following:

{
  "region": "DEFAULT",
  "consent": ["necessary", "performance", "functional", "targeting"]
}

Where region is DEFAULT and consent specifies what types of cookie categories the user has given preference too. This is stored as a strictly necessary cookie and has an expiration duration of 1 year.

Cookie Manager accepts a config like this:

import {
  Framework,
  Region,
  TrackerType,
  TrackingCategory,
} from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

export default {
  categories: [
    {
      id: TrackingCategory.NECESSARY,
      required: true,
      expiry: 365,
      trackers: [
        {
          id: 'locale',
          type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
          expiry: 10,
        },
      ],
    },
    {
      id: TrackingCategory.PERFORMANCE,
      expiry: 365,
      trackers: [
        {
          id: 'some_cookie',
          type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
          sessionCookie: true,
        },
      ],
    },
    {
      id: TrackingCategory.FUNCTIONAL,
      expiry: 365,
      trackers: [
        {
          id: 'mode',
          type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
        },
      ],
    },
    {
      id: TrackingCategory.TARGETING,
      expiry: 365,
      trackers: [
        {
          id: 'id-regex',
          type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
          regex: 'id(?:_[a-f0-9]{32}|undefined)(?:.*)',
        },
      ],
    },
    {
      id: TrackingCategory.DELETE_IF_SEEN,
      expiry: 0,
      trackers: [
        {
          id: 'cgl_prog',
          type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
        },
      ],
    },
  ],
  geolocationRules: [
    {
      region: Region.DEFAULT,
      framework: Framework.OPT_OUT,
    },
    {
      region: Region.EU,
      framework: Framework.OPT_IN,
    },
  ],
};

In this config, under each category you can specify what all cookies that should be allowed. Everything else, if detected will be deleted at an interval of 500 ms.

DELETE_IF_SEEN can be used to specify the cookies which should be deleted if seen on the browser

You can also specify regex for a given cookie as follows:

{
    id: 'id-regex',
    type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
    regex: 'id(?:_[a-f0-9]{32}|undefined)(?:.*)',
}

Any id with -regex at the end should contain a regex which will be used to match different cookies.

In this example: id_ac7a5c3da45e3612b44543a702e42b01 will also be allowed.

You need to specify the retention days for a category using the expiry key as follows:

{
      id: TrackingCategory.NECESSARY,
      required: true,
      expiry: 365,
      trackers: [
        {
          id: 'locale',
          type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
          expiry: 10,
        },
      ],
    }

Each cookie by default will inherit its category's retention duration but you can override this by specifying an expiry (in days) for the cookie:

 {
    id: 'locale',
    type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
    expiry: 10
}

If you want a cookie to only be valid for a session, it can optionally be marked as a session cookie as follows:

{
  id: 'some_cookie',
  type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
  sessionCookie: true
}

Note: Session cookies only last as long as your browser is open and are automatically deleted when a user closes the browser

Methods

Provider

The provider must wrap the entire application and only be instantiated once. On mount, it will remove all blocked cookies (i.e. cookies that do not have user consent). It takes the following props:

onError: (error: Error) => void: Error function

projectName: string: Current project name

locale: string: Locale to be displayed

region: 'EU' | 'DEFAULT'; DEFAULT refers to non-EU countries

onPreferenceChange?: (preference: TrackingPreference) => void: Callback for when user consent preferences change. This will also be called on mount.

config: Config: Cookie manager config. See Config section below

shadowMode?: boolean: Cookies will not be removed in this mode

log: (str: string, options?: Record<string, any>) => void: Log function

initialCookieValues?:Record<string, string> : Useful for server side rendering flows - setting of initial cookie values

initialGPCValue?:boolean: Useful for server side rendering flows - honoring of Set-GPC header

Example usage:

import { Provider, Region, TrackingCategory, TrackingPreference } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

<Provider
  onError={notifyError}
  onPreferenceChange={() => {}}
  locale={localeCode}
  region={isInEU(locale.country) ? Region.EU : Region.Default}
  projectName="consumer-marketing"
  config={cookieManagerConfig}
  log={eventTracking.track}
  shadowMode
  >
  {children}
</Provider>

useCookie

You should replace all usages of setting, removing or getting cookies with the useCookie hook. The cookie manager will prevent any non-consented cookies from being set. Passing undefined or null to the set cookie function will remove that cookie. You can also pass optional parameters to change the cookie properties.

It accepts the following props:

`cookieName`: Name of the cookie for which you want to perform operations

useCookie returns the current cookie value and a setCookieFunction

setCookieFunction can take in the following props:

  • value: The value to be set for the cookie
  • CookieAttributes: This is optional but you can specify the following properties for a cookie:
interface CookieAttributes {
  /**
   * Define when the cookie will be removed. Value can be a Number
   * which will be interpreted as days from time of creation or a
   * Date instance. If omitted, the cookie becomes a session cookie.
   */
  expires?: number | Date;

  /**
   * Define the path where the cookie is available. Defaults to '/'
   */
  path?: string;

  /**
   * Define the domain where the cookie is available. Defaults to
   * the domain of the page where the cookie was created.
   */
  domain?: string;

  /**
   * A Boolean indicating if the cookie transmission requires a
   * secure protocol (https). Defaults to false.
   */
  secure?: boolean;

  /**
   * Asserts that a cookie must not be sent with cross-origin requests,
   * providing some protection against cross-site request forgery
   * attacks (CSRF)
   */
  sameSite?: 'strict' | 'lax' | 'none';

  /**
   * An attribute which will be serialized, conformably to RFC 6265
   * section 5.2.
   */
  [property: string]: any;
}

Example usage:

import { useCookie } from '@cb/cookie-manager';

const SomeComponent = () => {
  const [cookie, setCookie] = useCookie('some_cookie');
  const handleClick = () => {
    setCookie('hello')
  };

  return (
    <div>
      <button onClick={handleClick}>Set cookie</button>
      <span>Current cookie: </span>
      <span>{cookie}</span>
    </div>
}

useHasConsent

This is a hook for programmatically determining if a tracker (e.g. cookie) has been consented to by the user.

import { useHasConsent } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

const SomeComponent = () => {
  const hasConsent = useHasConsent('cookie');

  return (
    <div>
      {hasConsent && <div> Cookie has consent </div>
    </div>
}

useRequiredCategories

This hook is used to determine which category of cookies is required.

Example Usage:

import { useRequiredCategories, TRACKER_CATEGORIES } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

const SomeComponent = () => {
  const requiredCategories = useRequiredCategories();

  return (
    <div>
       <CategoryContainer>
          {TRACKER_CATEGORIES.map(t => (
            <CheckBoxContainer key={t}>
              <CheckBox
                disabled={requiredCategories.includes(t)}
                checked={state.consent.includes(t)}
                onChange={(val: boolean) => dispatch({ name: t, value: val })}
              >
                <CategoryLabel name={t} />
              </CheckBox>
            </CheckBoxContainer>
          ))}
        </CategoryContainer>
    </div>
}

useSavedTrackingPreference

This hook is used to retrieve the saved cookie preference in cache

Example Usage:

import { useSavedTrackingPreference } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

const SomeComponent = () => {
  const preference = useSavedTrackingPreference();

  return (
    <div>
       {preference}
    </div>
  )
}

useSetTrackingPreference

This hook is used to set the saved cookie preference in cache

Example Usage:

import { useSetTrackingPreference, Region, TrackingCategory } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

const SomeComponent = () => {
    const setTrackingPreference = useSetTrackingPreference();

    const handleSave = useCallback(() => {
        setTrackingPreference({
            region: Region.Default,
            consent: [TrackingCategory.Functional],
        });
        console.log('cookie_consent_manager_saved_tapped');
    }, [setTrackingPreference]);

  return (
    <div>
        <Button onClick={handleSave} large>
            Save Preference
        </Button>
    </div>
  )
}

useTrackingPreference

This hook returns the cached preference and if no preference is cached, it returns the default preference based on user's region

Example Usage:

import { useTrackingPreference } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

const SomeComponent = () => {
  const initialTrackingPreference = useTrackingPreference();

  return (
    <div>
       {initialTrackingPreference}
    </div>
  )
}

areCookiesEnabled

This hook is used to determine if cookies have been enabled on user's browser

Example usage:

import { areCookiesEnabled } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';


const SomeComponent = () => {
  const enabled = areCookiesEnabled();

  return (
    <div>
       {enabled? <div> Cookies Enabled </div> : <div> Cookies not enabled </div>}
    </div>
  )
}

getDefaultTrackingPreference

This hook is used to retrieve the default tracking preference for a given user based on their region

Example usage:

import { getDefaultTrackingPreference } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

const SomeComponent = () => {
  const preference = getDefaultTrackingPreference();

  return (
    <div>
       {preference}
    </div>
  )
}

useTrackingManager

This hook is used to return TrackingManagerDependencies which includes all the values/methods which were passed into Cookie Manager Provider

Example usage:

import { isOptOut, useTrackingManager } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

const SomeComponent = () => {
  const { region } = useTrackingManager();
  const optOut = isOptOut(region);

  return (
    <div>
       `Region for the given user is ${region}`
    </div>
  )
}

isOptOut

Used for determining if the current region is using the optOut framework

It follows the following logic in order:

  • If there's no geolocation rule for the specified region then use the rule for DEFAULT region
  • Otherwise use the following rules:
    • optIn: Users must opt in to tracking (EU)
    • optOut: Users must opt out of tracking (non-EU)

Example usage:

import { isOptOut, useTrackingManager } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

const SomeComponent = () => {
  const { region } = useTrackingManager();
  const optOut = isOptOut(region);

  return (
    <div>
       {isOptOut ? <div> In default region </div> : <div> In Eu </div>}
    </div>
  )
}

trackerMatches

Used for determining if the passed value matches the tracker criteria.

This will match the if the value or regex produces a match on the passed value

Example usage:

import { trackerMatches } from '@coinbase/cookie-manager';

const tracker: Tracker = {
    id: 'id-regex',
    type: TrackerType.COOKIE,
    regex: 'id(?:_[a-f0-9]{32}|undefined)(?:.*)',
};

trackerMatches(tracker, 'id_ac7a5c3da45e3612b44543a702e42b01')
