One of the most important feature included in CookieHub is the cookie scanner. It enables the platform to remove cookies when cookie categories are blocked and allows us to automatically generate a cookie declaration for you website.
When a domain is created in the CookieHub portal you have the option to enable or disable cookie scanning. This can be enabled or disabled later but a cookie scan is required to create a cookie declaration.
How does it work?
When a domain is created in the CookieHub Dashboard and cookie scanning is enabled, our scanners will crawl your web site and collect information on cookies used on the web site along with details like expiration, hostname and path. Each cookie is then automatically assigned to the correct category based on our Cookie Database. Cookies that do not exist in our Cookie Database will be assigned to the Uncategorized category.
Once every month your web site is automatically crawled to check if there have been any changes to the cookies used on the website and any change is automatically published to your cookie declaration.
Domains with active Premium or Enterprise subscriptions are automatically validated to check if cookies are correctly set up and not set before the user has consented. The scan report is sent to all users linked to the account once a scan has completed with details about actions required and the current status of the cookie configuration.
We maintain a database of cookies detected, categorize them and provide details on the purpose of each cookie. You can easily change category assignments and descriptions about each cookie in the CookieHub Dashboard by clicking the Cookies tab for each domain.
