What is a cookie checker?

  • A cookie checker or cookie crawler is basically a browser that automatically visits your website. Through the scan, you can find out which providers are available on the website and which cookies they set. The cookie scanner can also automatically assign the cookies to specific purposes (e.g. necessary cookies, functional cookies, marketing cookies, analytics or measurement cookies). This way you can fully inform your visitors and comply with the GDPR cookie policy.

  • It is important that you regularly check your websites for new cookies and providers. This is the only way you can be legally on the safe side. In addition, consentmanager’s cookie checker gives you important insights into your customers’ behaviour. Our cookie crawler therefore automatically checks your website every day as soon as you have integrated the CMP code. We can also automatically notify you by email when the cookie checker finds new cookies or providers on your site. This allows you to act quickly without wasting time.

Use cookies in accordance with the law

Why should I check my browser cookies?

The only way to be GDPR compliant is to inform your visitors about all partners/vendors who process personal data on your website. The easiest way to do this is to use consentmanager’s cookie checker, which automatically scans your pages and notifies you. In addition to our free cookie scanner, you can use our Consent Management Provider (CMP): this allows you to display a customised cookie banner on your website to obtain visitor consent. With ready-made, legally compliant texts in over 30 languages and automatic updates, the GDPR information on your website is always up to date. You avoid warnings or fines from data protection authorities as well as a high bounce rate for your visitors. Instead, you increase adoption rates and customer satisfaction.

4 Top Reasons to Become GDPR Compliant

GDPR Compliance

consentmanager always observes the current cookie guidelines of the GDPR. You automatically receive legal certainty, even in the event of changes in data protection law. With this all-round carefree package, you can focus on your business. The cookie checker scans your website and lists all providers in full. If a customer has refused their consent for a cookie, the crawler automatically blocks the data transfer.

Data protection for your customers

Protect your customers and build trust. By complying with all applicable data protection regulations such as the CCPA and GDPR, your visitors will feel comfortable and safe. This increases their time spent on your site and your conversion rate!

consent management

Only by checking your website cookies can you fully inform your visitors about the processing of personal data. According to the GDPR, you need the active consent of the user. Consentmanager allows you to create an individual banner with a cookie notice. If this is optimized with the results of the cookie checker and your corporate identity, you increase the approval rate of the visitors and thus customer satisfaction.

More sales through advertising and conversion rate

Advertisers require consent to the processing of the data in order to be able to place personalized advertising. This gives you more advertising revenue than non-personalized advertising. At the same time, with an optimized cookie banner, you reduce the bounce rate and increase the acceptance rate and length of stay of visitors. If the customers feel comfortable with you and trust you with regard to data protection, this has a positive effect on user behavior and the conversion rate.
