App crawls are now also possible

consentmanager has had a cookie crawler for some time now, which can be used to check your own website/webshop for data protection compliance and to uncover weaknesses in the implementation of the GDPR when using a cookie banner.
GDPR compliance is not limited to websites and online shops. Mobile apps or TV sets also process personal data. To check the GDPR compliance of apps, consentmanager now offers the technical possibility to crawl apps.
This means more security for your visitors and customers in the future and makes you more trustworthy as an app provider and ensures more transparency from a data protection point of view.

Customers who have not manually switched by September 2023 will be switched automatically.
We will publish more information about the differences between the TCF versions in our next newsletter, but for most customers the changes will be minor and will not affect the normal operation of the website.

That was the OMR23 in Hamburg

Two exciting and action-packed days of OMR23 have come to an end. Our sales team had their hands full coping with the rush of visitors. Not only were cookies eaten, but there was also a lively exchange about cookie banners, data protection, etc. at our stand. This shows once again how high the need for knowledge sharing on this topic still is.
In this context, consentmanager would like to thank all visitors, customers and partners for their keen interest and for finding their way to us.
It was an exciting event for us to exhibit with our own stand at #OMR23 for the first time and not for the last time either.
Special thanks also go to the great team from Leadinfo (also part of the family), with whom we rocked our joint stand. It was even more fun together!
