All About CookiePro: Our Story

CookiePro is the world’s leading consent management tool that bridges the privacy gap between online businesses and website visitors. At CookiePro, our team is always looking to deliver the best value to our customers and partners.

  1. We are audience-oriented to build and grow with our customer’s and partner’s needs as our priority. 
  2. We are product-focused and constantly innovating to create new features and improve our solution.
  3. We are regulation-driven to comply with existing regulations and upcoming laws and frameworks.

Audience-Oriented

CookiePro was built by demand in May of 2018, a stressful time for many website owners – GDPR was going into effect and compliance was mandatory. Our parent company, OneTrust, was inundated with companies looking to find a compliance-solution, but they couldn’t reach out fast enough. Enter CookiePro.

CookiePro is a self-service solution built for website owners to purchase online, implement on their own, and comply with global regulations in a matter of minutes. Upgrade or buy more at any time using our custom subscription management portal. No need for a sales rep, a demo, or implementation services. Sure – we have sales reps, offer demos, and provide implementation services, but we also make it easy for you to get started on your own.

Once we got started, we realized there were a lot of partners signing up to implement CookiePro on their customer’s websites. We quickly innovated and created a dedicated partner program that offers a 40% discount for every plan so that partners can implement CookiePro for their clients, but also end up making money in the process.

Referrals? We offer kickbacks for referrals too. If a website or company really loves CookiePro, we encourage them to reach out for a referral code. That way if someone signs up using their code, the referrer will get a 30% commission for the first 3 years.

Once you become a CookiePro customer or partner, you have access to our Global Community with the latest user guides, best practice documentation, discussion boards, an ideas portal, support agents, and much more.

Have additional ideas for new programs? We want to know! Please send an email to [email protected] and a member of our team will get back to you.

Product-Focused

Although CookiePro was officially established in May of 2018, we have been doing this for over 18 years. In September of 2016, OneTrust (CookiePro’s parent company) acquired Optanon – the leader in cookie consent, founded in 2001. Since then, we have been continuing to innovate and improve our product to become the #1 Consent Solution in the market.

CookiePro has access to a global privacy team of experts in privacy management and global regulations. These experts are heavily involved in our research & development and help drive the roadmap for features we need to create or improve.

We are also able to leverage an R&D team of over 500 that work to deliver new product releases every 3 weeks. Rest assured knowing that our team is constantly innovating to deliver the absolute best and most up-to-date solution each month.

Regulation-Driven

New regulations for website owners are scary. With fines of up to 4% of your global annual revenue, it’s important to make sure your website is compliant – but how do you know what to do? We try to mitigate that fear and replace it with an easy-to-use solution that helps your website become compliant with existing and upcoming global regulations such as the GDPR, CCPA, LGPD, and more.

We are eager to answer any questions you have, and we’re constantly researching and writing best-practice guides to make it easy for you to understand what you must do to become compliant. Interested in learning more about the latest news? Sign up for the CookiePro Newsletter where we deliver a weekly update on the latest regulatory news, product updates, and much more.

Summary

In conclusion, rest assured knowing that CookiePro has your back and is eager to deliver the absolute best experience to you, our valued customers.
