										},
										{

									cookieNoticePro.init();
								});

								// Inject scripts if user accepts cookie types he is okay with
								// IMPORTANT: Add this code only if you are showing customize preference menu
								var injectScripts = function injectScripts(){
									// Example: Google Analytics
									if (cookieNoticePro.isPreferenceAccepted("analytics") === true) {
										console.log("Analytics Scripts Running....");
									}
									// Example: Google Adwords cookie, DoubleClick, Remarketing pixels, Social Media cookies
									if (cookieNoticePro.isPreferenceAccepted("marketing") === true) {
										console.log("Marketing Scripts Running....");
									}
									
									// Example: Remember password, language, etc
									if (cookieNoticePro.isPreferenceAccepted("preferences") === true) {
										console.log("Preferences Scripts Running....");
									}
								}  
							</head>
