IDC Names Securiti a Worldwide Leader in Data PrivacyView
In today’s privacy-aware world, an individual’s consent has become an integral part of any organization dealing with customer data. It refers to the authorization of the individual to allow the processing of his or her personal data. Most companies leverage consent as a lawful basis of data processing for marketing purposes including direct marketing and marketing via cookies.
To fulfill this legal obligation, organizations must display cookie consent banners to obtain users’ consent. This article sheds light on what a cookie consent banner is, the types of a cookie consent banner, and how organizations can deploy a cookie consent banner on their websites as per the applicable law.
A cookie consent banner is a cookie notification that is displayed on websites and other apps in the form of a banner or pop-up upon the user’s visit that explicitly asks for users' consent before deploying cookies. It does not just inform the user about cookies on a website but asks for their consent first. The cookie consent banner must be sufficiently noticeable and in an easily accessible form. The text of the banner must be in clear, plain and unambiguous language for the average user to understand.

Cookie banners are often required by privacy regulations, such as the GDPR and LGPD, when a website or online service collects or processes personal data through cookies. They serve as a means to obtain user consent and provide transparency about data collection practices.
A cookie banner should provide clear and concise information about the types of cookies used, their purposes, and a mechanism for users to provide or withhold consent. The language should be easy to understand, and users should be able to access detailed cookie policies for more information.
The effectiveness of a cookie banner depends on various factors, including compliance with legal requirements and user-friendliness. The "best" cookie banner for a specific website may vary, but it should be designed to meet legal obligations and provide a positive user experience.
