How do I categorize my cookies?
Updated over a week ago

We’ll automatically categorize recognizable cookies that we find during our scan. However, if cookies are found that are not yet in our database, we’ll notify you and ask you to categorize them into one of our six cookie categories: Essential, Performance and Functionality, Analytics and Customization, Advertising, Social Networking, and Unclassified.

Essential Cookies:
These cookies are strictly necessary for your website to properly function, and therefore cannot be disabled by your users.

Performance and Functionality:

These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of your website but are not essential to its use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality (like videos) may become unavailable.

Analytics and Customization:
These cookies collect information that is used to help you understand how your website is being used, how effective your marketing campaigns are, and to help you customize your website for users.


These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to users. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on user interests.

Social Networking:

These cookies are used to enable users to share pages and content that they find interesting on your website through third-party social media platforms. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes.


This is where we will group unclassified cookies. Please go through any cookies in this list and classify them.

We’ve included instructions and category descriptions on your dashboard to make classifying your cookies as easy as possible.

Click Scan Report under the Consent Management menu to access the cookie descriptions. Access my dashboard.
