For companies of all sizes, owning multiple domains is not uncommon. One company might have multiple smaller brands under one umbrella, each having its own identity. From a brand perspective, there are many pros to owning multiple domains and expanding the business. However, navigating to and from sister websites and interacting with multiple cookie banners can hinder the customer experience.

According to global regulations, such as GDPR, organizations are required to capture consent to cookies and tracking technologies on their digital properties. Deploying a cookie banner on digital properties is the gold standard to capture, store, and sync consent and preferences across domains and devices. 

To provide a frictionless experience, companies can leverage cross-domain consent functionality with CookiePro to allow site owners to maintain a single record of consent for one user across multiple domains. Leveraging CookiePro allows site visitors to see a cookie banner on their first visit to a linked site and won’t see it on subsequent visits to that site or other linked sites.  

How Cross-Domain Consent Works  

As mentioned, CookiePro  allows website owners to apply the consent gathered from a user on one site to implement cross-domain consent to maintain consent across other domains. Stay compliant while making the visitor’s experience more convenient.  Here’s an overview of how it works.

  1. A user visits one domain and is prompted with a cookie banner. The user provides consent and/or preferences while on the site, which is stored in CookiePro’s database.  
  2. The user navigates to another domain and instead of being prompted with the same cookie banner from the first-related site, the user’s consent and preferences are already stored and applied to the second visited domain.   
  3. The user’s consent and preferences will continue to be applied and synched across as many domains as needed.
