Services such analytics, retargeting, social media plugins, or videos often depend on the proper functionality of cookies. These cookies and services will most often process personal data. The website, therefore, has to comply with both GDPR and ePrivacy.
The Compliance Dashboard is an essential tool in managing the website’s level of compliance, proactively assess risks, and enabling you to become GDPR and ePrivacy compliant.
What is it for?
The Compliance Dashboard is a reporting and monitoring tool for companies that want to track GDRP and ePrivacy compliance across their digital portfolio.
With the Compliance Dashboard, you can easily get an overview of the cookies on your website or across your websites. Your knowledge can be used to identify unwanted cookies and to assess your privacy risks. E.g., such as whether your cookies share data to unsafe third countries. You are also able to monitor the cookies on your website.

The Compliance Dashboard will give you an overview of the total number of cookies you're using, the consent rate, and what cookies have an expiration date of more than 12 months.
It is very simple to navigate through the tool - by using many filters it's easy to find specific cookies and cookie categories, see cookies on your specific websites, and choose time periods for specific consent data. You can also export all of the data to Excel.
Maintain compliance by keeping track of potential privacy risks, seeing which cookies send data outside of Europe, and spotting all unclassified cookies.
What to do about Privacy Risks
- Does the Compliance dashboard tell you that you have some cookies that are unclassified? See how to classify them in our platform here
- Does the Compliance Dashboard tell you that you have some cookies that live longer than 12 months? Unfortunately, this is not something we can control.
- If it is a first-party cookie that means you control the cookie, and you should be able to edit the cookie to have a lifetime shorter than 12 months.
- If it is a third-party cookie this means someone else controls the cookie. You will have to contact this cookie vendor and ask them to modify the cookie to live shorter than 12 months. Some systems allow you to do this yourself from a platform. See how to do this for Google Analytics here
