Is Cookiebot gratis?

Cookiebot is a freemium plugin, much like Jetpack and Monsterinsights.

Of het gratis abonnement kan volstaat, of je een premium abonnement nodig hebt, hangt van twee dingen af:

  1. The size of your website, i.e. the number of subpages on your website.
    You cannot choose whether you want a free plan or a premium plan, as this is determined by the number of subpages on your website. Get a quote to see which plan your site needs.

  2. De functies die je nodig hebt. Het gratis plan bevat niet alle functies die beschikbaar zijn in de premium plannen. Het gratis plan omvat geen aanpassing van banner- en cookieverklaring, meerdere talen, e-mailrapporten, gegevensexport, geolocatie, bulktoestemming, toestemmingsstatistieken, interne domeinalias voor ontwikkeling, test en staging.

If more than 50 subpages are found during the initial website scan, you will be given a 14 days free trial of Cookiebot CMP with full functionality.

See all details of Cookiebot CMP plans and pricing.

What does Cookiebot count as pages?

Your pricing plan is dependent on the number of subpages the Cookiebot CMP detects on your website.

Cookiebot does not count image files as subpages, thus setting users to a higher subscription plan. Depending on your theme, WordPress may automatically create real pages for content placed in your media library, called Attachment pages. Because these pages can contain online trackers, Cookiebot CMP includes them in your page count.

To disable the Attachment page feature in WordPress, please see the following guides:


Cookiebot CMP bevat ook een automatisch geüpdatet cookieverklaring voor de cookies die op je site worden gebruikt.

Door het te implementeren, zorg je ervoor dat jouw cookieverklaring op elk moment specifiek en nauwkeurig is, zoals vereist door de GDPR. De verklaring biedt ook automatisch de verplichte opties voor de gebruiker om de toestemming te wijzigen of in te trekken.

For CCPA and CPRA compliance, businesses will be able to display the required Do Not Sell Or Share My Personal Information link on their cookie declaration.

Om uw cookieverklaring weer te geven, maak je een nieuwe pagina aan op je site en voeg je de door de plugin geleverde shortcode toe aan de pagina: [cookie_declaration]. Je kan het ook opnemen in je bestaande privacybeleid.

By default, the cookie declaration is displayed in the selected Cookiebot CMP language. You are able to override this setting with a “lang” attribute in the shortcode. E.g.: [cookie_declaration lang=”de”] for a German version. Remember to add all languages used in the Cookiebot Manager.

Als je twijfelt over welke cookies op onze site in gebruik zijn, kunt je beginnen met onze gratis compliantietest:

Test mijn site

De test scant vijf pagina’s van je site en stuurt je een volledig rapport van de cookies en online tracking op deze pagina’s, inclusief informatie over hun herkomst, doel en of ze al dan niet voldoen aan de EU-regelgeving.

Wil je een compleet overzicht van de cookies en online tracking op je site, meld je dan aan voor de Cookiebot CMP oplossing.

How can I set up my cookie banner with Cookiebot CMP?

Please find here our step by step guide on how to set up your cookie banner.

How does Cookiebot CMP block cookies and trackers?

Cookiebot CMP provides two modes to block cookies and trackers before consent has been given.

  1. Auto cookie-blocking mode will automatically block all cookies (except for ‘strictly necessary’ cookies) until a user has given consent. Learn more about the auto cookie-blocking mode.
  2. Manual cookie-blocking mode requests manual adjustments to the cookie-setting scripts. Read more about the manual cookie-blocking mode.

What is the GDPR and the ePrivacy Directive?

The GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation, an EU law enforced since May 2018. It protects EU citizens’ personal data globally and affects all organizations and websites that handle such data. If you have a website with users from the EU, and if your website uses cookies (it probably does), then you need to make your use of cookies and tracking compliant with the GDPR.

See the EU GDPR homepage for more information, or their infographic for businesses: Data Protection: Better rules for small businesses.

The ePrivacy Directive is another EU legal instrument that specifically aims to protect EU citizens’ online data, such as data from online communication. It is in the process of becoming a full regulation like the GDPR.

What is the CCPA and CPRA?

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a state-wide law that regulates how businesses all over the world are allowed to handle the personal information of California residents. Starting from January 1, 2023 the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) comes into effect, amending and extending the CCPA.

Je bent aansprakelijk voor naleving van de CCPA als jouw bedrijf:

Sells the personal information of more than 50,000 California residents per year (increased to 100,000 under the CPRA as of January 1st, 2023)
Has an annual gross revenue exceeding $25 million
Derives more than 50 percent of its annual revenue from the selling of personal information of California residents

Under the CPRA, compliance also applies to sharing as well as selling personal information. Cookies and other tracking technologies are classified as unique identifiers that form part of the CCPA’s definition of personal information.

If your business has a website, you must know and disclose to consumers, at or before the point of collection, the data you collect and which third parties you share it with. This can be done through the Cookiebot CMP cookie declaration that also features the required “Do Not Sell Or Share My Personal Information” link, so end users can opt out of having their data sold or shared.

If your website is visited by consumers under the age of 16, you are required by the CCPA and CPRA to first obtain their opt in. This can be done through Cookiebot CMP’s CCPA opt-in banner.

Click here to find all the details about the CCPA and CPRA and how to achieve compliance.

Hoe kan ik andere plug-ins Cookiebot laten ondersteunen?

Als je favoriete plugins geen ondersteuning bieden voor Cookiebot CMP, dan ben je altijd welkom om de auteur te vragen om ondersteuning toe te voegen.

Send an email to the plugin developer you want to support Cookiebot and request that support for Cookiebot CMP be added. Cookiebot provides a helper function to check if there is an active, working version of Cookiebot CMP on the website.

De eenvoudigste manier voor een ontwikkelaar om Cookiebot CMP ondersteuning te implementeren is het toevoegen van een controle waar tags worden uitgevoerd naar de bezoeker. Dit kan op de volgende manier:

$scriptTag = ”;
if(function_exists(‘cookiebot_active’) && cookiebot_active()) {
$scriptTag = ‘<script’.cookiebot_assist(‘statistics’).’>’;

The developer of the plugin can see more details on our Github repository.

Can my website become compliant once I install Cookiebot CMP?

If you use our plugin version 3.0 or later and choose the automatic implementation, Cookiebot enables full compliance with the ‘prior consent’ requirement of the GDPR, the ePrivacy Directive (ePR) and similar privacy regulations for protection of user data around the world. Cookiebot CMP also enables compliance with the CCPA and CPRA through the implementation of the “Do Not Sell Or Share My Personal Information” link on a website’s cookie declaration, as well as the opt-in banner required if your website targets visitors under the age of 16.

The default consent banner has the strictest settings possible and is suitable for obtaining consent under both GDPR and the ePR. Make sure to adapt the consent banner content to fit your website. Check out our GDPR checklist if you have website visitors from the EU. If you are using server-side cookies, please check the Server-side usage guide.

Be aware that Cookiebot CMP is customizable and therefore true compliance always depends on the settings that you make within the plugin and Cookiebot Manager.

Are you using the manual implementation? Please make sure to check if you are using plugins that set cookies which require consent. If so, you have to:
1. Ask the plugin developers if they are planning on becoming GDPR/CCPA compliant, or if they would like to integrate with Cookiebot CMP. Check out our Github repository, where we are developing integrations for Cookiebot CMP, until the plugin developers choose to do this themselves, or if WP Core enables such functionality.
2. Once Cookiebot CMP is installed, you can check the cookie report to identify all cookies being set on your website. If the cookies are coming from content that you have inserted manually, you can mark up that content as described in our manual implementation guide step 4. Embedded videos and iframes which set cookies can be marked up as explained in our iframe cookie consent with YouTube example.

Mega angetan - das Ding tut was es soll!

I set up the plugin easily. Well done, nice design. For us it is an essential plugin. We pay a subscription. Deserve.
19 februari 2024
Works like it should, have good documents and great support. As of me writing this they are working on the layout of the backend on their site so there are some things not quite as good as they could be there, but I trust they will fix that.
