Smugmug Privacy/Cookie Policy Banner is HUGE

First time seeing this Privacy banner pop-up when visiting my site. Is this now the norm for all visitors?

Don't have any issue with it as I know these types of banners are pretty standard fair on websites, but does it have to be so BIG? This takes up the third of my screen!

    We wanted to make sure to comply with the new EU requirements but we are working on tweaking the size and copy (for those of you with Custom Domains, we'll want to make it less about SmugMug and more about your site, which uses SmugMug).

    Is there a way for us to fiddle with the size in CSS while we wait for a resolution?

    For those of you who want to reduce the size of the banner you can use the folloiwng code:

    #sm-eu-cookie-banner {
    min-height: 5vh !important;
    }
    

    The current value is 25vh which is why it is so tall.

    For those of you who wish to hide it altogether this is the code:

    #sm-eu-cookie-banner {
    display:none !important;
    }
    

    For some reason, when you go into "Customise" your site the banner reappears so it appears to ignore it on the admin pages.

    Great tip Marc, thanks for the code!

    Tested it through incognito mode and VPN into an EU country, seems a lot smaller now.

    Now I'm wondering if there is a way to make it stick to the footer of a page rather than the header till people click to dismiss it. For those of us using horizontal menus for our pages, the banner covers up things like our logo and menu links. I'm just hoping people don't visit the site, fail to click the X to close the banner and then get frustrated because they can't see any navigation links.

    @Shinrya try this

    #sm-eu-cookie-banner {
        min-height: 5vh !important;
        top: auto !important;
        bottom: 0;
    }

    That worked a treat! Thanks Marc

    This will adjust the background colour for anybody who wants it. (replacing the colour code with the one you want to use)

    #sm-eu-cookie-banner {
        background-color: #1c1d1f !important;
    }
