Use JavaScript to hide element for one year. It’s perfect for banners such as cookie. You can easily change parameters and change it from 365 days to what ever you need.

// Key under which name the cookie is saved
const cookieName = 'cookieconsent';
// The value could be used to store different levels of consent
const cookieValue = 'dismissed';

function dismiss() {
    const date = new Date();
    // Cookie is valid 1 year: now + (days x hours x minutes x seconds x milliseconds)
    date.setTime(date.getTime() + (365 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000));
    // Set cookie
    document.cookie = `${cookieName}=${cookieValue};expires=${date.toUTCString()};path=/`;

    // You probably want to remove the banner

// Get button element
const buttonElement = document.querySelector('.element-dismiss');
// Maybe cookie consent is not present
if (buttonElement) {
    // Listen on button click
    buttonElement.addEventListener('click', dismiss);

Your element need to have class of “element-dismiss” and you need to place button element inside

<div class="element-dismiss cookie-baner">
    <h3>Cookie Banner</h3>
