Cookie Preference Logs

In the Cookie Solution

🎯 New requirement

Many Data Protection Authorities across Europe (including the UK, France, Italy, Belgium, and more) have aligned their rules on cookies and trackers with the requirements of the GDPR and now explicitly require you to document your users’ preferences for the use of cookies. This is because cookies may process personal data, and record-keeping requirements arising from the GDPR apply.

What does this mean for me?

It means that you now need to keep records of the cookie preferences your users set when they visit your site.

In my case, do I need it?

If you have a cookie banner, you need to upgrade your Cookie Solution – regardless of what type of Pro/Ultra license or plan you have – in order to enable the Cookie Preference Log.

What happens if I don’t comply?

Failure to comply means that the cookie consents you do capture will be considered invalid in the eyes of the law. This puts you in violation of the GDPR and at risk for sanctions and fines of up to €20,000 000

How to comply

We’ve made this easy for you with Cookie preference logs now available within our Cookie Solution. To activate your Cookie preference log, simply upgrade your Cookie solution plan.
