Do I need a cookie banner on my website?
Cookiebot CMP for privacy protection, brand reputation and adtech developments
Cookie banners today are unlike the early, simple cookie consent popups that only had an “ok” button.
Now, your website’s end-user consent solution needs to live up to strict cookie banner requirements, consumer demands and the evolving technology of the industry itself.
Offer the easiest end-user consent on the Internet with our CMP.
Here are three key reasons why your website needs a cookie banner –
1) Most new data privacy legislations focus on end-user consent
Emerging data privacy laws around the world are increasingly focused on end-user consent, from the EU’s GDPR through US state bills in the making to Brazil’s LGPD, South Africa’s POPIA, Thailand’s PDPA, Malaysia’s PDPA, and many others on the horizon.
Consent is the new standard for the dawning privacy-focused Internet, and nowhere is this more apparent than on a website’s cookie consent banner.
Your website is a dynamic system interacting with the personal and sensitive data of real, living people through cookies and similar tracking technologies.
In the whole Internet, your website is just another domain among the billions, but balancing data privacy and a data-driven internet economy starts local, and it starts small.
It matters that your website’s consent banners are the best in the industry.
Additionally, data privacy enforcement is growing teeth, and legal liability for ignoring the consent rights of end-users have become a risky business.
2) Consent is becoming a consumer demand and a metric of brand reputation
Cookie consent is no longer just a tiresome chore from a dusty EU directive – it’s recognized as a consumer demand with 80% of customers saying they left a brand because it was using their data without their consent.
Akin to sustainability markings on produce packaging, a high-quality consent management solution on a website now signals good customer relations and data protection awareness – metrics that help build brand reputation in an increasingly digital world, where all companies are also digital companies.
Balancing your website’s need for data and conversions against the growing public and legal demand for data protection and privacy is difficult.
But as the world’s leading consent management platform, Cookiebot CMP automates the entire compliance process for you and balances data privacy and data-driven business with trusted and reliable technology that is intuitive and easy to use for your end-users.
3) Google and the industry are shifting towards consent
Google Consent Mode is a new core feature that lets your website run all its integrated Google-services (such as Google Tag Manager, Google Tag Manager 360 and Google Analytics) based on the consent state of your end-user, offering conversion modeling and basic measurements for your website when users say no to cookies and trackers via your consent banner.
The launch of Google Consent Mode and Google’s decision to phase out third-party cookies from its Chrome browser is a clear signal that the adtech industry itself is moving away from unconsented mass harvest of personal data towards a model that not only respects end-user consent but puts it at its center of operations.
Making sure that you can provide the best consent banners for your end-users is important, since cookie consent banners are becoming central mechanisms for controlling analytics, ads, and marketing services across-the-board.
Making sure that your website has the best consent management platform available on the market – one that integrates seamlessly with Google Consent Mode – is vital for your website going forward into a thriving, sustainable internet economy based on end-user consent.
Can I control cookies on my website without a cookie banner?
Cookie consent banner and cookie scanner takes the hard part out of compliance
Cookiebot CMP is a mature technology that took years to build.
Today, it’s the most powerful tool on the market for detecting tracking technologies in operation on websites and to control these based on genuine end-user consent.
Cookies are a potential privacy risk and a legal liability for your website because they can track, store and share behavior about your end-users.
Cookies used on a website are dynamic and often change, and on average, a website has 20 cookies in use.
Here’s why you won’t be able to control cookies and manage end-user consent on your website by yourself –
72% of all cookies are set by fourth parties that are loaded by third parties, i.e. “trojan horses” that website owners cannot find without a deep-scanning technology like Cookiebot CMP.
18% of all cookies are set by fifth parties or deeper.
50% of “trojan horses” will have changed between visits, meaning that they can be different cookies altogether, collecting different data for different agents, and making the legal responsibility of the website owner impossible to live up to, without a consent management platform like Cookiebot CMP.
99% of all cookies are used to track website visitors or to provide targeted ads.

What is a cookie banner?
A cookie banner is a consent interface on a website where end-users can decide which cookies and trackers they will allow to be activated during their visit. Cookie banners are required by several major data privacy laws in the world, including the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is a valid cookie banner?
Under the EU’s GDPR, cookie banners must give end-users a genuine choice of saying “yes” or “no” to cookies that process and share personal data. A GDPR-compliant cookie banner is not allowed to have pre-ticked checkboxes or to nudge users towards accepting cookies.
Is a cookie banner necessary?
If you have cookies on your website, then a cookie banner is most likely necessary and legally mandatory. If your website has users from inside the EU, a GDPR-compliant cookie banner that enables uses to say “yes” or “no” to cookies is a legal requirement. Other major data privacy laws also require cookie consent banners, such as Brazil’s LGPD, South Africa’s POPIA, Malaysia’s PDPA and more.
What should cookie banners say?
Cookie banners must give end-users full transparency into the tracking and collection of personal data that is happening on your domain, including what cookies and trackers are in use, what kinds of data they collect, who they share the personal data with (third parties), as well as the technical details and provider of the cookies in use.
How do you make a cookie banner?
Why are cookies legal?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on a user’s computer when they navigate on the Internet – they are simply pieces of technology that are used for a wide range of purposes. However, if you use third-party cookies on your website (for statistics or marketing purposes) that process personal data from users, several data privacy laws in the world require you to obtain consent from the end-user prior to activating the cookies.
What are essential cookies?
Essential cookies or necessary cookies are the cookies that help your website function on a basic level, e.g. user log-ins or what page the user is navigating on. Necessary cookies don’t need the prior consent from end-users, since they don’t collect and share personal data. However, third-party cookies used for analytics and advertisement always need a cookie warning and end-user consent to function.
Are cookies illegal?
Cookies are not illegal just by their own technology – it’s what you use them for that is regulated by data privacy laws around the world. Under the EU’s GDPR, cookies that process personal data from end-users inside the EU must only be activated if the users’ give their explicit consent. Cookie notifications and cookie popups on websites can manage user consent, but make sure to have a GDPR-compliant cookie consent popup.

How do you make a GDPR banner?
A “GDPR banner” – or cookie banner – must be able to manage end-user consents and control all cookies and trackers in use on your website. Making it yourself is practically impossible, since 72% of all cookies are set by fourth parties that are loaded by third parties, which website owners cannot find without a deep-scanning technology.
