Crawler Updates

We’ve made several updates on the Crawler. The crawler now is much quicker and more precise in the results. More cookies are now automatically classified and assigned to the right vendor. We’ve also added some new settings for the crawler (e.g. crawling of password-areas and exclusion of domains/paths from crawling).

Cookies & Local Storage

Local Storage is a way to store information on a users device. It is very similar to cookies, but has less privacy implications and technical limitations. Consentmanager now supports the use of this technology as a secodary storage for the users consent information. This will help to cache the users choices – even in cases when browsers do not support or delete cookies. The new feature can be enabled at Menu > CMPs > Edit > Other settings > Consent Storage.
