Consent Management

Legal compliance, boosted


Consent Management - Are you GDPR Compliant?

What is it?

Consent Management Solutions by BBI BrandboostConsent management means giving the users of your website the power to decide for themselves what personal data they share with your business. To empower your end users to make meaningful decisions, you must let people know that your website uses cookies (or other tracking mechanisms) explain what those cookies do, and give users a simple way to accept or reject them.

Why do I need consent management on my website?

A Cookie widget (saying something like… “This website uses cookies, by continuing to use this site you are confirming your acceptance”) was for a long time the accepted approach to addressing the issue of Cookie consent for UK websites.

These “implied” consent widgets are no longer compliant under GDPR because the law has been updated. If you still have one of these widgets on your website, you need to change the way in which you manage user consent.

What Changed?

The UK's data protection supervisory authority, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), published guidance to provide greater clarity to organisations grappling with how the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to cookies and similar technologies The Cookie Law is a piece of privacy legislation that requires websites to obtain explicit consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on a computer, smartphone or tablet.

What legislation do I need to follow?

Website owners have a legal compliance obligation under GDPR Articles 5, 7, 12, 30, PECR Regulation 6 and CCPA section 1798.135.

What legislation do I need to follow?

What should I do now?

1) All website owners must look at what Cookies they have on their website. This will allow them to list the cookies by name, detail down what they do and place them into categories for a consent management system.

2) Once the cookies have been identified, add a consent management tool to your website which will allow users of the site to control what types of cookies they accept when they visit your site, i.e., end users should be able to see the list of cookie categories set up in step 1, and decide on a category-by-category basis which ones they wish to accept.

How do I check what cookies I have?

There are many cookie scanners in the market place which you can use to scan the cookies on your website. However, if you compare two scanners you will undoubtably come up with different results! This is where we can help. We use a combination of quality third party scanners and our own methodology to give you a comprehensive analysis of the cookies on your website.

What Consent Management Tool should I use?

Like the cookie scanners, there are many Consent management systems in the market. At BBI Brandboost we have selected Seers as it complies with website owners’ obligations under GDPR Articles 5, 7, 12, 30, PECR Regulation 6 and CCPA section 1798.135. The Seers consent management system is customisable and cost effective.
