Why Cookie Consent is necessary?
Although GDPR does not speak about Cookies, basically all countries in the EEA (European Economic Area; that’s EU + Norway, Island and Liechtenstein) implemented the ePrivacy directive into their local law. Therefore in all of these countries the visitor needs to be informed that cookies will be set, which cookies these are, from which vendors they are and for what purposes the cookies are set (e.g. marketing or statistics). In most cases the law also requires that the user can opt-out of these cookies and in some cases it is even necessary to not set cookies until the user actively did an opt-in for cookies.
Why Cookie Consent is important
In order to be GDPR-compliant you should tell your visitors with which of your partners will have access to the visitors data and which will be setting cookies on the visitors device. The consentmanager.net Cookie Spider will automatically crawl your website and find all cookies that are present.

A “Cookie Banner”, “Cookie Notice” or “Cookie Message” is an information layer that is displayed on your website. There are many forms of Cookie Banners, usually it is a small layer at the bottom of the screen. The purpose is to inform the visitor about cookies on this website and ask for consent. In order to become GDPR compliant and compliant with ePrivacy a cookie banner should contain the following information:
- Information that cookies are set
- Information on the general purposes
- An “Accept”-Button
- (in most cases necessary) A “Reject”-Button
- Further information on the data processing on your website
- The partners that are present on your website
- A description of the purposes
- Information on which partner uses which purposes
Cookie Banner vs. CMP: What’s the difference?
While a Cookie Banner is only focused on cookies, a CMP has a more general focus on data processing and is therefore recommended in order to be compliant with GDPR. In some cases a “simple” cookie banner can be sufficient for ePrivacy, but if you want to ensure GDPR compliance, a CMP is usually the better choice.
(When) Do I need a Cookie Banner?
A Cookie Message is usually necessary if your company’s jurisdiction is in the EEA or if your website has visitors from EEA-citizens. If you are not sure if that applies to you, please ask your lawyer for advise. In any case: If you want to be safe, it is always better to have a notification than to not have one.
