How to Display a Cookie Audit Table on Your Website Using CookieYes?

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires you to make your European audience aware of what cookies are being used by your website, what their purposes are, how they are being used, and what information they collect from the users.

You can use a cookie audit table to notify your website visitors about the types of cookies you use, its purposes, and other specifications.

CookieYes enables you to add cookie audit tables inside your cookie consent banner as well as display them on the front end of your website. You can also customize the cookie audit tables set by CookieYes with much ease.

Our setup guide will help you get started with CookieYes.

Displaying cookie audit tables on the front end of your website

CookieYes allows you to display category wise cookie audit tables on your website so that your site visitors can see it on their browsers. To do this:

Insert the code <div class="cky-audit-table-element"></div> anywhere on your website.
