What is a cookie banner?

  • Cookies are small text files that store information about your web browsing history. They allow websites to remember your personal information and browsing history. Cookies can be used for a variety of purposes: to track user behaviour, to store login information, or to keep track of items in your shopping cart. These tiny pieces of data help make the web more personal and enjoyable by saving you time and effort when interacting with sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Maps and many others.
  • Without cookies, it would be almost impossible for websites and shops to remember you. Without them, when you load a new page in an online store or start a new browser session, all your recent purchases would disappear! To prevent this from happening (especially when you make a spontaneous purchase), cookies are used to record not only what you have bought, but also all the other information about how you have used a website. For example, browsing habits at certain times/days, etc.

What is a cookie banner and why do you need them?

A cookie banner is a pop-up notice that appears when a user visits a website for the first time. This pop-up notice informs the user about the processing of personal data and gives them the opportunity to opt out if they wish. A cookie banner is an essential tool for websites that need to obtain a visitor’s consent before using third party services. This banner must be used if the website includes such features, as they may use technologies such as web beacons or pixels to measure your browsing activity and personal information on the website (e.g. IP address).

Become 100% GDPR compliant

What else to consider with a cookie banner

The General Data Protection Regulation requires website owners to provide a cookie banner with information about cookies and their use on the website. However, the user must give their consent to these cookies so that they can be used in a legally compliant manner by the website owner. The most common way that websites obtain this consent is through an explicit opt-in form . There are other options such as pre-checked boxes or default consent based on past activities. However, only the opt-in procedure is GDPR-compliant.

GDPR User Consent

  • In order to comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), some website operators require the consent of their users in accordance with Article 30 GDPR. The GDPR is not limited to cookies, but applies to all technologies that process personal data in any way. A simple banner is not sufficient to implement the requirements of the GDPR on a website in a fully privacy compliant manner.
  • As long as the user’s consent has not yet been given, all scripts that could collect user data must be blocked first. Only after cookies have been selected and confirmed may they be reloaded dynamically for use by advertisers within a company’s website or application, but only if a consent management system also ensures compliance with the technical requirements!
  • It must also be documented on what basis the data processing takes place. In addition, it should be ensured that as little information as possible is collected about the users and that they have access to the consent given at any time or can revoke it in whole or in part with just a few mouse clicks. Withdrawing consent for the processing of personal data must also be as easy as giving it.

The importance of a cookie banner for your business

  • A cookie banner has two meanings for consulting companies. First of all, it is important that you use a banner to display cookies you have used yourself on your website. Here it is advisable that potential customers do not find your banner irritating and leave your site. You will also gain the trust of your potential customers by indicating that cookies are used and what they are used for. On the other hand, it is essential for consultancies to make B2B clients aware of the need for a cookie banner. This is how you protect your customers from high penalties due to data protection violations.
  • With a cookie banner from consentmanager, your clients get important insights into the user behavior of the visitors and can then optimize their website. And higher acceptance rates lead to more conversions .
  • For your consulting company, a banner has the following advantages:
    • A legally compliant banner with an opt-in feature protects you from unpleasant fines.
    • You care about your customers’ rights, and you can show it by using the GDPR compliant banner.
    • A well-designed banner that inspires confidence increases the likelihood that visitors will freely give their consent.

Conclusion

Cookies are not rocket science! Design your cookie banner correctly. It is important to make banners compliant because it is not a disadvantage for the website owner. Also, your site visitors should be treated fairly. This means being transparent about what happens when they visit the site. Only then can visitors make an informed decision about what, if any, data they want to share.

frequently asked Questions

Not sure if you need a CMP?

To help you with things like GDPR, CMP and consent, we’ve rounded up the most common questions here.

There are different types of cookies on the Internet, including necessary cookies, first-party cookies and third-party cookies. Strictly necessary cookies are required and essential for the basic operation of a website and enable functions such as page navigation and access to protected areas. First-party cookies are set by the website itself and are used to enhance the user experience, store user preferences and provide personalised content. Third-party cookies are set by external domains or services embedded in the website, often for advertising, tracking or analysis purposes. It is important that websites inform their users about the use of such cookies, especially by third parties, and obtain their consent in accordance with applicable privacy laws.

consentmanager’s free Cookie Checker finds all the cookies set by your website and analyses them according to their categories and sources. This means you get both a complete overview and control over who sets which cookies on your website. The Cookie Checker performs this scan daily, ensuring GDPR compliance on your website at all times. It is the easiest and best way to find and list all cookies.

According to the GDPR and the laws of the member states, the website owner must provide its customers with comprehensive information about the data collected and how it is used. The user decides what data processing he or she agrees to. For this reason, almost every website needs a cookie banner. With the Cookie Checker you can check your website’s cookies and display a GDPR compliant cookie banner. You can use a ready-made design or create a custom one and design/select the text and buttons yourself.

Browser cookies are text files containing small pieces of data that store information about website visitors. This includes functional information such as browser, language and device (desktop, tablet or mobile). They ensure that the website runs smoothly and is easy to use. For example, the temporary storage of items on e-commerce sites using cookies allows you to return to your shopping cart in an online store to complete an order. On the other hand, personal information such as age, gender, etc. may be collected. This information is used for marketing purposes so that the website operator can learn more about its target audience and visitors. This enables them to provide more interesting, relevant and better content or products to their customers. The information may also be shared with third parties.
