How to manage cookies and end-user consent on your website
In this guest post, CCO of Cookiebot CMP, Simon Høgsbro, shares a helpful guide to website cookie and end-user consent management.
In this blog post, we will look at how to manage your website’s cookies, how to collect compliant end-user consents, plus best practices for keeping your website compliant on a monthly basis.
How to detect and control your website’s cookies and trackers
Here is an example of a fully compliant cookie consent banner:
Our brand new product, Mono Cookie Consent, is powered by the partnership with Cookiebot consent management platform (CMP), which features a patent-pending scanning technology integrated seamlessly into its core, capable of finding and controlling all trackers – even the “trojan horses” that may hide in third-party cookies and prompt to change upon repeated visits.
The partnership between Mono Solutions and Cookiebot CMP enables you to live up to the highest standards of personal data protection on the Internet today.
Mono Cookie Consent offers the best-in-class cookie consent banners with better user experience, high-level of accessibility and mobile responsiveness, and secondly, a patent-pending scanning solution that automatically detects, blocks, and categorizes all cookies and tracking scripts based on an extensive cookies and trackers repository, used by both small and medium-sized businesses and big enterprise companies.
How to collect compliant end-user consents
Cookie consent popups can be notoriously annoying text boxes offering no real choice of data protection for your end-users. Choosing the wrong cookie consent manager for your website can negatively affect your customer acquisition and retention as well as pertain to legal jeopardy for non-compliance.
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation requires that cookie consent banners on your website empower end-users with true prior consent, meaning no cookies activated, and no personal data processed before users have given their consent.
Google Consent Mode’s seamless integration with Cookiebot CMP ensures that you can balance data privacy compliance and data-driven business on your website without having to compromise either.
Best practices on how to manage your website’s compliance on a monthly basis
The best and most painless way to manage your website’s compliance is to use a consent management platform, like Mono Cookie consent.
By using Mono Cookie Consent, you will automate your website’s entire compliance process, offering compliance solutions for the EU’s GDPR, California’s CCPA, and other local data privacy regulations.
Once implemented on your domain, Mono Cookie Consent will automatically update your consent banner and cookie declaration with any newly identified cookies and trackers, as required by law, so that your website compliance is continuously updated.
