Cookie Audit Services 

Do you need a hand ensuring your organisations approach to Cookie law and similar technologies is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Privacy and Electronic Communication Regulations (PECR)?

Cookie compliance is an increasing regulatory priority for the ICO

We can help you find the balance between respecting your users’ privacy whilst still generating your online marketing revenue and tracking the statistics you need.

The three-level approach to our Cookie compliance audit

Cookies Gap Analysis

The standard Cookies gap analysis process takes 3 days.

This stage is for organisations looking to answer the following questions:

  • Which Cookies do we drop on our visitors?
  • Do we still need all of those Cookies?
  • How do our Cookie tools work?
  • Is our Cookie banner compliant?
  • Is the way we use our Cookies compliant with PECR and GDPR?
  • How much work needs to be done to achieve GDPR and PECR compliance?

Our preliminary service acts as a starting point for Cookie law where we can help you map how closely your website and Cookie operations align to what the new Cookie regulations require.

Once we’ve completed our Cookies assessment to map your current state of play, you will have a clear roadmap that will outline the areas which need to be addressed in order to achieve compliance.

If you’d like to get started today and find out more about our Cookies Gap Analysis, get in touch with one of our expert Cookie compliance consultants, call us on 01494 442900, or complete our enquiry form below.

If you’re confident your organisation can answer the questions above, you’re ready to move up to the next level of our Cookie compliance audit. 

Cookies DPIA and Risk Assessment

This is a bespoke piece of work based on your organisation’s website size, in-house skills and current Cookie configuration, so project timings will vary.

This stage is for organisations looking to answer the following questions:

  • Which Cookies are dropped on each webpage?
  • What information is each Cookie collecting and how is it being used?
  • Which Cookies are sharing information with third-parties and what information is being passed on?
  • How do Cookies behave in different environments, i.e on different web browsers, when users are logged in/out of the website?
  • What are the risks of our current Cookie configuration, and how do we mitigate them?
  • Are there any organisational benefits which could outweigh the risks?

This stage will help you to understand exactly how each Cookie behaves on every webpage and how they operate in different environments. It will also show you what information is being shared with third-parties, and highlight the contractual obligations you’ll need to have in place.

Once we’ve completed the full website audit and Cookie assessment, we can help you go through a DPIA that will identify and minimise the data protection risks of your Cookie operations.

This will likely produce a number of remedial actions that will need to be addressed to achieve Cookie compliance.

If you’re confident your organisation is compliant with the ICO’s Cookie regulations, you’re ready to move up to the final level of our Cookie auditing process. 

Aligning Cookie compliance with your business objectives

This stage involves a 1-day workshop centered on discussing your assessment’s findings and creating an action plan so you can compliantly meet your business goals.

We can also support you with implementing your action plan. As this would be tailored to your organisation's unique needs, these projects timings will vary. Get in touch with one of our expert consultants to find out more.

This final stage is organisations that are looking to answer the following questions:

  • How can we compliantly encourage our users to give consent and accept more Cookies?
  • What other techniques and tools can we use to meet our business objectives?
  • How can we ensure legal compliance does not affect our business performance?

Once you have achieved Cookie compliance we can sit down with your organisation and discuss how to maintain compliance whilst still meeting your business goals.

Our 1-day workshop will give you the ability to objectively go through your assessment report and work out other ways to generate your online marketing revenue and track the statistics you need. We can also help you find new ways to encourage your users to accept other Cookies, such as those for analytical and marketing purposes.

This will give you a bespoke action plan that will get your organisation to where it wants to be. If you need support implementing any stage of your plan, our expert consultants are more than to help.
