The current regions are EEA (European Economic Area), or the European Union with GDPR and ePrivacy as their main privacy laws. And the United States of America, with COPPA and CCPA (California) as their main privacy laws. Canada’s PIPEDA is set to be the next region.
In the free version, Complianz | GDPR Cookie Consent, you can choose between either the EU or USA. For the premium version, you can choose either or both (with GEO IP enabled).
The differences between the 2 regions (in a nutshell)
Opt-in or Opt-out
EU – Consent or Opt-in is required before non-functional cookies are set. This can either be done with categories or a simple allow/dismiss. 3rd Party cookies are blocked before any user input is given.
USA – Notice is needed for the set cookies. Opt-in is not necessary at first, but through the DNSMPI the cookies should be able to be revoked.
Cookie Consent Banner
USA – The Cookie Notice should state the usage of cookies and refer to the Privacy Statement and DNSMPI. Revoking the set cookies is possible in the DNSMPI.
USA – The Privacy Statement, and Privacy Statement for Children (when applicable) + the DNSMPI or Do Not Sell My Personal Information page are necessary to comply to US Privacy Laws.
