Find all tracking technologies
An important point in GDPR legislation is that you are fully aware of all tracking technologies on your website and that you know what user data you share with third parties and where this data is sent to. It is therefore essential that you find and explain all tracking technologies on your website.
ALTA-ICT makes this easy for you. We scan your website for the 10 most famous tracking technologies,including those behind your login system:
- HTTP cookies
- HTML5 Local Storage 1st party cookies
- HTML5 Local Storage 3rd party cookies
- Silverlight Isolated Storage
- Flash Local Shared Object
- Web beacons
- Ultrasound beacons
- Pixel tags
Monthly scan and reporting
The world is not static and the same goes for tracking technologies. New technology comes on and the old one disappears. On average, more than 30 of all cookies and tracking technologies change every month. Therefore, one of the most important requirements of EU regulations is that you are fully aware of all cookies and trackers on your website.
Alta-ICT’s comprehensive monthly cookie report informs you about the following:
- how many new cookies are on your website
- how many cookies have disappeared or been deleted
- where new cookies have been placed on your website
- where new cookies have been placed in your website code
- the source of cookies and trackers on your website
- the information your website shares with third parties and where it is sent to
As the owner of a website, this information allows you to determine whether the cookies and trackers are a necessary requirement for running your business and/or website, or whether they can be removed. This also allows you to determine whether a DataProtection Impact Assessment(DPIA) is required and, if so, provide essential information to have it included in your DPIA.
The scanner scans the entire website including all sub pages where cookies and tracking technology can be in use.
This includes dynamic pages and pages with iframes, videos, pop-ups,etc.
This deep scan is there to ensure that all cookies and trackers are found (and so compliant) in order to display accurate information when a website visitor is asked to give consent.
Cookie consent banner
Obtaining user consent before tracking technologies are enabled is an important requirement for GDPR. Cookie Info supports the requirement of ‘prior consent’ by refusing all types of cookies and trackers until the website visitor has agreed to use them (by simply clicking on alta-ICT’s pop-up cookie consent banner).
You can also choose to offer ‘multi-level consent’, where the user can choose which types of cookies they want to block, putting the ultimate control in the hands of the user and boosting trust in your company or brand.
Registration of consent for cookies
Under GDPR, you must be able to demonstrate that all users who are tracked and profiled have agreed to this. The ALTA-ICT cookie banner records and tracks all consents so that you have access to proof of consent in the event of an audit.
Security and security are high on our agenda, so all permissions are passed over a secure SSL connection and encrypted for storage.
Withdrawal of consent
The ability for users to change their minds and revoketheir consent is an important part of GDPR. It should be as easy to revoke permission as it was to give. In other words, if you click on a banner to give permission, you should also be able to click on a banner to revoke your consent.
ALTA-ICT makes this possible. Again, if chosen, the multi-level system of permission of ALTA-ICT offers the user the choice. This means that the user can choose, for example, to opt out of collecting marketing cookies, while cookies regarding statistics are agreed.
Automatic cookie statement
Because it is a ‘dynamic’ page, it also automatically displays the user’s current consent position and allows the user to change or revoke a consent.
Additional features and benefits:
Automatic cookie descriptions
The ALTA-ICT cookie banner maintains a central database of cookie definitions, describing the function of each known cookie or tracker. Every time the software detects a cookie on your website, it automatically extracts information from the database to describe the cookie’s function for visitors to your website.
If desired, we can change the description and save it to your banner.
One consent for multiple domains
If you have more than one website or if your website has multiple subdomains, ALTA-ICT offers a one consent option, where website users can give one consent that applies to all domains. With this option, you can have website users give permission on their first visit to one of your websites.
Automatically detect language
Alta-ICT software automatically detects the user’s language based on their browser preferences and displays text in the user’s preferred language in the consent banner.
We currently have customizable text templates in 43 languages.
Supports accessibility standards
To cater to users of assistive technology, such as speech recognition software, our standard consent banner meets the World Wide Web Consortium’s WCAG 2.0 and WAI-ARIA accessibility standards.
