Core functionality
Cookie consent banner
Cookiebot displays a user friendly, no-nonsense dialog the first time a user visits your website - no matter what page the user first lands on. The configurable dialog informs the user about the use of cookies and asks for consent to set cookies on the user’s web browser, all with minimum impact on the overall user experience.

Cookiebot remembers the user’s choice for 13 months (EU de facto standard) after which the banner will automatically pop up to renew the user's consent.

Cookiebot offers full support of the required prior consent so that only strictly necessary cookies are set before the user consents. Besides Active Consent Cookiebot also supports Implied Consent which submits a consent automatically if the user navigates your website without actively answering the consent dialog.

The consent mechanism can be configured to comply with current regulations in all EU Member States. If you operate websites in multiple countries, you can set up a configuration for each country.
Automated cookie scan and declaration
Once a month Cookiebot will perform an automated cookie audit by scanning your website for cookies (HTTP/Javascript cookies, HTML5 Local Storage, Flash Local Shared Object, Silverlight Isolated Storage, web beacons, pixel tags) and generate a cookie declaration with descriptions on every cookie found on your website.

The declaration is available to your website users as part of the consent dialog's details pane and as a separate cookie report.

The cookie report can be published in full on any of your subpages, e.g. as part of your privacy policy, by simply including a javascript-code in the specific page. The declaration also shows the user's current consent state and offers the user the statutory option of changing or withdrawing a consent.

Monitor your cookies by registering one or more subscribers to receive a monthly scan report by e-mail with information on e.g. new and removed cookies.
Cookie Control API
With Cookiebot you are in full control of which cookies are set on your website. Instead of leaving it up to your website visitors to opt-in or opt-out at up to several hundred third party cookie providers, Cookiebot offers your visitors a simple, general choice on four types of cookies across all cookie providers.

Cookiebot exposes a JavaScript object with a number of public properties, methods, events and callback functions that you can use in your website's front-end code to activate scripts individually based on the current user's consent state.

The consent state is stored on the user's browser as a persistant cookie with a JSON-formatted value that can also be read server side to evaluate the user's consent before setting cookies.

In the Cookie Manager you can see on which URL a cookie was first discovered which makes it easy for you to identify the scripts setting cookies.
Cookie repository
Cookiebot maintains a global cookie repository with descriptions of the purpose of commonly used third party cookies. When Cookiebot identifies a known cookie on your website it uses the information from the knowledge base to describe the purpose of the cookie to your website visitors.

From the global repository Cookiebot creates a local repository after the first scan of your website. In the local repository you can change any applied description and set purpose descriptions on all cookies identified by the scanner. On subsequent scans Cookiebot reuses information from the local repository to describe both first and third party cookies.
Bulk consent for multiple domains
If you operate multiple websites from different domains and/or your website operates from several sub-domains, Cookiebot can ask your website visitors for a consent that covers all your domains. By enabling this option your users will only be prompted for a consent the first time they visit any of your websites.
Support and auto-detect any language
Text in the consent dialog can be customised with an unlimited number of language variants in the browser-based manager. Default text templates in 34 languages are available in the Cookiebot manager.

Furthermore, Cookiebot enables automatic language detection to show the consent dialog in the individual website user's preferred language.
Real-time geo targeting
By enabling this option the cookie consent dialog will only be shown to visitors whose IP is detected to be in one of the EU member states where the EU ePrivacy Directive applies.
Reporting: Insight on user consents
Cookiebot provides visual statistics on the choices of your website visitors.
Configuration
Easy deployment on your website
Cookiebot is a platform independent cloud service that can be used with any website. Copy just a few lines of JavaScript code from the Cookiebot manager into your website to show your own cookie consent banner and declaration.
White-list strictly necessary cookies
Some cookies are strictly necessary in order to make your website work correctly. Under the EU Cookie Directive you can set this type of cookie without the user’s prior consent. In the Cookiebot manager you can classify relevant cookies as necessary so that Cookiebot will not block any strictly necessary cookies.
Cross browser support
The front-end consent collector script works in all leading HTML4 and HTML5 compliant web browsers with support for JavaScript and Secure Socket Layer (SSL). The Cookiebot manager is optimised for the newest and previous version of the top 5 web browsers, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera.
Support of accessibility standards
To accomodate users that use assistive software such as screen readers Cookiebots consent banner supports W3C's accessibility standards WCAG 2.0 and WAI-ARIA.
Respects 'Do not track' setting
If a user has opted out of tracking by websites in the web browser’s general DNT-settings (Do-Not-Track), Cookiebot does not set the third party cookie "CookieConsentBulkTicket" that enables bulk consent by identifying the user across your websites.
Support of Modern Type user interface
Cookiebot works with both traditional websites and modern single-page applications (SPA), also known as single-page interface (SPI). The Cookiebot API includes designated methods for SPA-developers.
Platform
Fast and reliable
Cookiebot operates from the cloud and thereby scales with your needs.

The service utilizes the extensive features of the cloud to ensure high availability, like full redundancy, load balancing, automatic capacity scaling, continuous data backup and geo-replication along with a traffic manager for automatic geographical failover on datacenter level disasters.
Encrypted security
Consents are automatically collected through a secured SSL-connection and all consents are stored as strongly encrypted keys.
