Why choose Cookiebot?

The Internet is flooded with free cookie scripts and plug-ins that claim to make your website compliant with the cookie law. Cookiebot is inexpensive, but not free - Here's the answer to why Cookiebot is a good investment anyway.
■ Full transparency
Unlike any free tool, Cookiebot continuously monitors your website for cookies and similar tracking technologies. Like an ingredients label for your website, the result is presented in an embedded cookie declaration. The declaration provides detailed and up-to-date information to you and your visitors about the cookies on your website.


■ Real compliance
While many free tools claim to be compliant with the cookie rules in force, they are really not. Typically, they do not support the core requirement of 'prior consent' - holding back cookies until the website visitor has consented. Cookiebot respects the privacy of your visitors by providing the option of prior consent.

Additionally Cookiebot registers all consents, which enables you to document each individual consent in accordance with the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR.


■ You're in control
With Cookiebot you know what is going on. No free tool includes a cloud powered backend with real-time features like geo targeting and consent logging to provide statistics and documentation on the choices of your visitors. The browser-based backend makes it a breeze to configure, deploy and manage your solution.
