IAB TCF 2.2 support

The IAB TCF 2.2 is here and consentmanager is one of the first CMPs to support the new standard. Publishers can now switch from 2.0 to 2.2 and get ready for Google’s new advertising requirements.

IMPORTANT: Code change required immediately / abolition of old codes

We would like to point out once again that all old codes on websites and apps must be replaced by July 1st at the latest . Old codes that still contain the domain will no longer work from this date: the cookie banner will no longer be displayed, providers may not be blocked or not blocked correctly. Various warning messages in your account in the CMP overview will show you whether you are still using old codes.
