Crawler Updates

With our latest update, we have put the focus back on our crawler. The crawler is now even more thorough and tracks subpages within the website more precisely than before. The results of the crawler can now finally be exported as PDF and we have added further checks, for example for third-country transfers.

In addition, the control of the crawler has become better: In the crawler settings of a CMP you can now set that newly found vendors should first be added to a waiting list and not immediately to the normal vendor list. Furthermore, cookies can now be separated by domain, which is of particular benefit to customers who use the same CMP code on multiple domains. And last but not least, the vendor list now also shows the last finds, so that it is easier to understand where a vendor was found.

Improved automatic blocking

In addition to the crawler, we also improved the automatic blocking code this month. Since it is preferred by many customers, we have improved the convenience and the loading time in particular: While there were more problems in the past with “essential” or “functional” vendors that were blocked by the CMP, it should now be much easier to work with such vendors.
