The declaration is available to your website users as part of the consent dialog's details pane and as a separate cookie report.
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.
Cookiebot remembers the user’s choice for 12 months after which the banner will automatically pop up to renew the user's consent.
All user consents are automatically logged in an anonymized form and using an encrypted key. No Data Processing Agreement (GDPR) is needed. The consent log can be downloaded from the Manager and used for documentation.
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.
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 offers full support of the required prior consent so that only strictly necessary cookies are set before the user consents. Cookiebot can automatically block all first-party and third-party cookies and trackers on your website. Alternatively, you can manually mark up scripts to be held back until the user has consented.
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.
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.
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.
Text in the consent dialog can be customised with an unlimited number of language variants in the browser-based manager. Default text templates in 46 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.
If you want to target the collection of consent to visitors from specific countries or regions in the world, Cookiebot can in real-time determine which country the individual user comes from, and display the consent banner only to visitors from the selected countries and regions.
For all other visitors your website will function unchanged.
Cookiebot provides visual statistics on the choices of your website visitors. Also, after each monthly scan, Cookiebot will compile a scan report with details on identified trackers on your website, changes since the previous scan and other details.
From the manager you can configure any number of e-mail recipients to receive the monthly report for one or more domains.
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.
Consents are automatically collected through a secured SSL-connection and all consents are stored as strongly encrypted keys.
Cookiebot is a platform independent cloud service that can be used with any website.
Cookiebot can automatically hold back all first- and third-party cookies and trackers until a consent has been given – no mark-up needed.
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.
The Cookiebot manager is optimised for the newest and previous version of the top 6 web browsers, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera.
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.
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.
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.
