This article is not up to date anymore: we now support 4 regions and several subregions.

Regions targeted

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)
