Cookie Law Compliance

Cookiecomply – delivering powerful configuration and core functionality through a fast and reliable platform

Our aim is to ensure that you fully comply with UK Cookie Law and to offer users protection when visiting your site, while delivering a bespoke implementation for your website platform. Here’s how:
Eight powerful ways of providing superb core functionality

● Cookie consent banner

Cookiecomply displays a simple and user-friendly dialog when a user first visits your site. This is true whichever page they have chosen. The visitor is informed about your use of cookies and asked to consent to this on their web browser. This swift and simple process has little impact on the user’s overall positive experience of visiting your site. Their choices are remembered for a full 13 months (EU Standard) and then a renewed consent is requested.
This complete support of required prior consent means only strictly-needed cookies are set before this consent is gained. The process supports both active and implied consents, meaning that a consent is automatically submitted if the visitor navigates your site without actively responding to your consent dialog.
This mechanism can be configured to be in full compliance with current regulations across all Member States of the EU. If you operate in a range of countries, you can configure for each one.

● Automated cookie scan plus declaration

Once monthly, Cookiecomply performs an automated audit of cookies through a scan of your website. This covers HTTP/JavaScript cookies, plus Flash Local Shared Object, HTML5 Local Storage, Silverlight Isolated Storage, and pixel tags and web beacons. From this a cookie declaration will be generated, describing every cookie that is present on your website. This is available to users as part of the details pane in the consent dialog and also as a stand-alone cookie report. This can be published in full on each of your sub-pages. An example could be as a part of your privacy policy, achieved by the inclusion of a JavaScript code on a specific page.
Your declaration also displays the user’s current consent status and offers them the statutory option of either withdrawing or changing it.

● Cookie control API

You are in complete control of your website cookies. Instead of expecting your website visitors to either opt in or out at perhaps a few hundred third party cookie providers, this package offers your visitors a simplified choice of four types of cookies across all providers.
Cookiecomply exposes any JavaScript object with a number of public properties, events, and methods or call-back functions, which you can use in the front-end code for your website to activate scripts individually based on the current consent state of the user. This state is stored on a user’s own browser as a persistent JSON-formatted value cookie. It can also be read on the server’s side, thus evaluating user consent before cookies are set.
The Cookie Manager shows which URL a cookie was first discovered on and this makes it easy to identify the scripts setting cookies.

● Cookie repository

Cookiecomply maintains a global repository of commonly used third party cookies and descriptions of their purpose. On identifying a known cookie on your website, it uses the knowledge base information to describe its purpose to visitors to your website.
After the first scan of your website, a local repository is also created from this global base. Here you can change applied and set purpose descriptions on all scanned and identified cookies. Subsequently, this information from the local repository describes both first and thirds party cookies.

● Bulk consent for multiple domains

 Should you operate multiple sites through different domains, or operate from several sub-domains, Cookiecomply can request visitors for a consent to cover all of these. Using this option means that users will only be prompted for their consent on a first visit to any of your sites.

● Support and auto-detect any language

Consent dialog text can be customised using unlimited language variants in the browser-based manager. 34-language default text templates are available. Automatic detection will show the consent dialog in a user’s preferred language choice.

● EU-only visitor display

Using this, the dialog regarding cookie consent will only be shown to visitors whose IP is detected as from one of those EU Member States where the EU Privacy Directive is in force.

● User consents insight reporting

Providing key statistics on choices made by visitors.
Six vital configuration capabilities

● Easy website deployment

This is a cloud-based, platform-independent service for any website. Simply copy a few lines of JavaScript code for its manager into your website and this will display your own cookie consent declaration and banner.

● White-list those strictly necessary cookies

Under the EU Cookie Directive you can set those cookies that are strictly necessary for your website to correctly operate without prior consent from the user. In the Cookiecomply Manager, you can so classify these to avoid any of them being blocked.

● Cross browser support

The Cookiecomply Manager is optimised for the newest and previous version of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera. The front-end consent-collector script works in all leading HTML 4 and 5 compliant web browsers with support for both SSL and JavaScript.

● Accessibility standards support

It also supports W3C’s accessibility standards WCAG 2.0 and WAI-ARIA to accommodate users of assistive software such as screen readers.

● ‘Do not track’ respect setting

Should any user have opted-out of tracking in their browser’s general DNT settings, then Cookiecomply does not set the ‘CookieConsentBulkTicket’ third party cookie that enables such bulk consent by identifying the visitor across all your websites.

● Modern type user interface support

Cookiecomply works with both traditional website and modern single-page applications (also known as single-page interfaces). Its API includes designated methods for SPA-developers.
