consentmanager Interface in a new look

The time has come! Now that the beta test phase has been completed and various optimisations have been carried out, our client login area can boast improved usability and a fresh new design. In addition, more clarity and structured user guidance will make it even easier and faster for you to create and customise your cookie layer.
Newly registered users and customers will immediately benefit from the new user interface. Existing customers currently still have the option of switching between the old and the new user interface to manage their CMP. You can switch to the new version with just one click.
Curious now? Then try it out right away.

Clients can switch between old and new interface here:

Cases such as the recent one involving the AI chatbot Replika, which was found to have unlawfully collected personal data from minors, are a clear example of the lack of data protection awareness in the AI industry. To find out what a GDPR-compliant AI bot should look like, read our new blog post here.
