Enable a cookie consent solution that’s compliant with the ePrivacy Directive, GDPR, CCPA and more.

Cookie consent

Whether you call it a cookie consent banner or wall, privacy tool or popup, notification or management platform, having one on your website can help you achieve compliance with privacy laws like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Are you required to provide a cookie consent solution?

Understanding what privacy laws are relevant to you and if you are required to provide a cookie consent solution can be challenging. That is why Termageddon’s Privacy Policy generator will help you first identify what privacy laws apply to you. Then, based on how your website functions, the tool will notify you if you are required to obtain user consent for the use of cookies and other web technologies. This can be easily handled by implementing a cookie consent solution.

Termageddon offering: cookie consent solution

Each Termageddon license includes a cookie consent solution, which is powered by Usercentrics and their Consent Management Platform (CMP). Simply answer the Privacy Policy generator questionnaire to determine if you are required to have a cookie consent solution in place, and if so, you will be prompted to activate it. Paste the resulting embed code into your website’s header and you are ready to go! Please note, if your website consistently exceeds 20,000 website sessions in a month, you will be prompted to upgrade to a paid Usercentrics subscription.

We monitor privacy laws for you and automatically update your website policies when the laws change.

Benefits of Usercentrics’ Cookie Consent Management Platform (CMP)

Complimentary add-on

To enable you to achieve privacy compliance with relevant regulations, Termageddon’s questionnaire will help you determine what privacy regulations may be relevant to your business, and what user consents you may need to obtain on your website.  It will automatically prompt you to activate the cookie consent solution right within your dashboard.

European Union based

Usercentrics is based in Germany and does not transfer data to the United States, thereby avoiding GDPR international data transfer issues.

Accessible

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) certification is considered the gold standard for web accessibility. It helps ensure that all website and app users have an equal and transparent user experience to make consent choices regarding processing of their data. Usercentrics’ cookie consent solution is WCAG 2.1 AA certified.

Advanced scanner

The cookie consent solution includes a scanner that automatically identifies the cookies and other web technologies, e.g. for marketing or analytics, in use on your website.

Cookie Policy generator included

By combining Usercentrics’ cookie consent solution with Termageddon’s policy generator technology, Termageddon customers can generate a comprehensive Cookie Policy page (aka Cookie Declaration page) right within their dashboard.

Termageddon is trusted as the most comprehensive website policies generator by countless law firms, customers and partners.

FAQs

Yes, up to 20,000 website sessions per month. If you exceed 20,000 sessions per month, you will be contacted by Termageddon to upgrade to a paid Usercentrics plan.
Yes, you will be notified if you exceed the session limit and will have several weeks to upgrade your plan. If you do not upgrade your plan within a reasonable time, then you will be notified that your cookie consent solution will be deactivated.

Although Usercentrics provides its cookie consent solution for both websites and apps, the complementary Usercentrics license available within Termageddon is for websites only. If you have an app in need of a cookie consent solution, we recommend contacting Usercentrics directly.

Great! You can get started with the complimentary Usercentrics cookie consent solution that is included with each Termageddon subscription. When your website starts to exceed 20,000 sessions in a month, you will receive a request to upgrade to a larger plan at that time.

Some privacy laws require user consent prior to enabling cookies that are not essential to the operation of the website, if they collect users’ personal information, such as IP addresses. To comply with these laws, you may be required to obtain website visitors’ consent prior to the collection of this personal information, and store this information securely. 

Upon purchasing your subscription and answering the Privacy Policy questionnaire, the Termageddon questionnaire will alert you if you should consider adding a cookie consent solution to your website. You will then be able to activate your cookie consent license and add the embed code onto your website.

For example, if your website performs any of the following actions and any of your website visitors reside in the European Union and European Economic Area, you need to obtain these visitors’ consent when they first visit your website:

  • processing personal data for purposes like remarketing, content personalization, behavioral advertising, analytics, email marketing
  • automated decision-making, e.g. profiling
  • transfer of data overseas: mostly applicable to organizations processing EU citizens’ data outside of the EU
  • processing special categories of data: such as racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data

The Usercentrics Consent Management Platform (CMP), which powers the cookie consent solution, detects the outgoing request URLs and maps them to what we call a “service”. For example, we know that a request to the URL “https://www.youtube.com” is a request for the service “YouTube” and will block the request automatically if the user has not given consent for the YouTube service via the CMP.

The same logic applies to many different third-party technologies, like tracking and retargeting scripts.

Yes. After the initial setup is complete, you can always change the categories of your services in your settings in the dashboard. You have the following options:

  1. Essential: These services are essential for the site to work. These may be services such as a CDN, shopping cart, or browser language selection.
  2. Functional: These services are used to extend the functionality of the site. These may be services such as video or map integration.
  3. Marketing: These services are used primarily for marketing and tracking. These may be services such as analytics or retargeting.
If a user has not consented to a certain service, e.g. Google Analytics, the CMP prevents the execution of that particular script. As a result, the number of visitors in your statistics may decrease slightly after implementation.
When you add new third-party technologies to your website, you can rescan the site to detect any cookies that have been added, or add them manually if you wish. This can quickly be done by visiting theCookie policy and consent toolsection within your Termageddon account. When you remove a third-party technology, you can simply delete the service from your CMP configuration by going to your cookie consent solution questionnaire and clicking Delete next to the service that you have removed from your site.

You can manually add the service by visiting the Cookie policy and consent tool section within your Termageddon account. Here, you can rescan your website or manually add any services.

Whether you are using third-party technologies directly on your website or through a Tag Manager, the Usercentrics cookie consent solution will detect outgoing requests as soon as they happen, while blocking the execution of those scripts until the user has provided consent.
In terms of page speed, the automatic blocking of third-party technologies will not negatively affect your site’s performance. The blocking of those technologies can even speed up your site, as fewer files have to be requested and transferred to your users.
Yes, the only difference may be that your analytics tools will only have data on users that consented to it, and your ads will only be visible to users that have opted in.
For certain visual elements, e.g. YouTube videos, Google maps, Soundcloud embeddings, etc., the Usercentrics CMP will display a placeholder instead of the actual content, which will show an opt-in request to users in order to enable them to interact with the content. This is a large part of Usercentrics’ effort to optimize opt-in rates based on contextual consent layers along the user journey.
