IAPP Launches Cookie Compliance Tool Powered by OneTrust

ATLANTA, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- OneTrust, the leading enterprise privacy management software solution used by over 1,000 organizations to comply with global privacy regulations, together with IAPP, the world's largest association of privacy professionals, announces the launch of its Cookie Compliance tool.

Free for IAPP members, the Cookie Compliance tool is an online platform that helps organizations assess their compliance with EU cookie laws as outlined in the new EU ePrivacy Directive. The online tool allows organizations to begin their website's compliance checklist using the following steps:

  1. Scan your primary website and all sub-pages for cookies, tags, forms, and policies
  2. View results of your website scan in the centralized dashboard
  3. Customize the cookie banner, and get a live preview of what it will look like on your website
  4. Create a custom, dynamically updated cookie policy based on the results of your scans
  5. Give visitors control over the different types of cookies set by your site in the customizable Visitor Preferences Center

"With the new consent obligations in GDPR, as well as the new ePrivacy regulation proposed in the EU, organizations around the world face an increasingly risky and uncertain environment when it comes to electronic privacy and website compliance," said IAPP President and CEO J. Trevor Hughes, CIPP. "They need technology-based automation tools like the new IAPP-OneTrust Website Scanning & Cookie Compliance tool to help them identify gaps and create organizational awareness. Built as an integrated module of the existing IAPP and OneTrust suite of products, this new tool is a great example of the value of integrated and comprehensive offerings to IAPP members."

The Cookie Compliance tool is integrated into the existing comprehensive platform that the IAPP and OneTrust offer to members at no cost. By registering for the new Cookie Compliance tool, IAPP members get access to the full suite of IAPP and OneTrust products. The suite of free tools offered by the IAPP and OneTrust for Privacy Professionals now includes:

  1. Comprehensive PIA Platform (launched September 2016)
  2. EU Data Transfer Kit for GDPR, BCR, and Privacy Shield Readiness (launched November 2016)
  3. U.S. Federal Agency PTA and PIA Templates (launched in December 2016)
  4. Website Scanning and Cookie Compliance (launched March 2017)

"The technology that the new IAPP and OneTrust Website Scanning and Cookie Compliance tool is built on is one of the first ever cookie compliance solutions on the market after the ePrivacy directive came into force," said OneTrust Product Manager Richard Beaumont. "It is one of the most proven ePrivacy compliance technologies on the market, used on thousands of websites with millions of impressions. With the volatility of the new drafted ePrivacy regulation, the aggressive implementation timelines proposed in the regulation, and the potential dramatic fines of 4% global turnover, it is more important now than ever that the global privacy community have access to free tools to help prepare and educate their internal teams. I am pleased to make this sophisticated and mature technology solution available to IAPP members at no cost for their primary website."

OneTrust recently hosted a live webinar and published a detailed white paper about The Future of EU Cookie Compliance. Click here to watch a recording of the webinar, and click here to download your copy of the white paper.

"The OneTrust Cookie Compliance tool has been developed to meet the growing digital privacy needs of IAPP members worldwide," said OneTrust CEO Kabir Barday, CIPM, CIPP/US, CIPT. "The IAPP offers more software-based solutions for their members through OneTrust than any other provider, and OneTrust and IAPP are continuously releasing new products and templates for IAPP members. It's this level of collaboration and commitment to ongoing innovation that has made OneTrust the most seamless, comprehensive privacy management software platform on the market, to date."
