  "cc_website_url" : "CSSScript.com",       
  "cc_theme_css" : "./src/cookieconsent.css" // path to theme CSS
});

3. Customize the cookie consent popup with the following options.

CookieConsent.run({

  // parent contianer
  cc_container : "body",

  // or set language here
  cc_current_lang : "en",               
  cc_default_lang : "en",
  cc_languages : {},

  // auto display on page load
  cc_autorun: false, 

  // // link to your cookie-policy page 
  cc_policy_url: null,       

  // delay in ms
  cc_delay: 20,

  // if enabled -> erase unused cookies based on deselected preferences
  cc_autoclear_cookies: true,                 
  
  // auto load CSS
  cc_autoload_css: true,  

  // theme css
  cc_theme_css: null,
