You cannot edit it, it's pulling from Internet Brands directly and therefor cannot be edited unless you want to replace the entire script call with one of your own.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Edit: Although... by using this aren't the members agreeing to Internet Brands privacy policy and GDPR compliance in a sense? Well actually yes that is exactly it so how does this consent cover the forum in question? To explain further, this calls the IB js file to show the GDPR message that includes links to the privacy policy but that is not YOUR (the forum i.e. your forums) privacy policy in the least.

Each site handles GDPR comliance in different ways based on the type of site they run and what data they collect i.e. a hosting company can be GDPR compliant however that doesn't mean all accounts using their hosting services are, each individual site would then be responsible for becoming compliant as they collect different information than a forum does with it's members as a prime example.

So with all that being said, I might be overlooking something here but from my understanding of how GDPR works and such, this is not the way to do this i.e. having a member agree to a GDPR/Privacy Policy that isn't even from your site - if anyone else has insight on this please share as I'm not trying to derail this mod thread in the least but many people right now as-of today are still completely baffled and stumped over GDPR and compliance.

As this comes from here (IB's script), I guess you should try with deleting cookies for IB's sites (vborg, vbcom), that may delete right cookies for you.

This modification is using vBulletin's GDPR consent option, not one for the site that is using the modification i.e. it's not the end-user consenting to GDPR on your forum, they're still accepting it on behalf of Internet Brands/vBulletin GDPR and that has nothing to do with the forum it's installed on.

I'm moving this to the modification graveyard because it's well, just not valid and viable because each site must be GDPR Compliant (to clarify there is no such thing as GDPR Certification etc, you're either not compiant OR you've made the required changes to actually be compliant).

Each individual site must have it's own GDPR "stance" and whether or not they're compliant. The GDPR and the previous EU Cookie Consent are not the same thing, in fact GDPR must be approached in a different manner. To explain:

You would need to update your Privacy Policy for your site, you can use this tool to help you do that it's super-easy to use: https://dsgvo-muster-datenschutzerkl...tz.de/?lang=en

- Please make sure to go through all the left categories as well and mention all 3rd party vendors you share user contacts with.
- You can see the video with an explanation here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8TrxVWZSvQ and their pdf for help is at https://nohasslewebsite.com/wp-conte...Compliance.pdf

All this is just a guide to creating your own GDPR policy, you must then implement it and make any required changes.
