3. Customizable Language Names
To better serve our diverse global users, you can now customize language names in the consent banner. This ensures that everyone understands their choices, no matter what language they speak.

CookieScript is proud to roll out its latest feature aimed at empowering web agencies - the Whitelabeled Dashboard. This feature is designed to enable agencies to resell CookieScript's solutions while fully embracing their own brand identity.
What is the Whitelabeled Dashboard?
The Whitelabeled Dashboard is a revolutionary offering that allows web agencies to host the CookieScript dashboard on their own domain or subdomain, complete with their own branding. This includes the agency's logo, brand colors, and any other branding elements, providing a seamless and integrated experience for their clients.
Benefits of the Whitelabeled Dashboard:
Enhanced Brand Presence: By using your own domain and branding, you reinforce your agency's identity and professionalism.
Simplified User Experience: Users will interact with a familiar brand, your own, throughout their journey, from logging in to receiving notifications.
Ease of Setup: The only technical requirement is adding a DNS CNAME record for your chosen domain/subdomain. No complex integrations are needed.
How It Works:
Once set up, the Whitelabeled Dashboard operates just like the CookieScript dashboard but under your brand. Any users registered through your dashboard will be automatically redirected to your domain if they attempt to log in via CookieScript's main site. Moreover, all communications, including emails and notifications, will be branded with your logo, ensuring a consistent brand experience.
See It in Action:

We're excited to announce some fantastic updates to our service, designed to enhance your experience and make your cookie banners more attractive and user-friendly. Here's what's new:
1. Improved Cookie Banner Design:
We've given our cookie banners a fresh look with more contrast colors and better element alignment, making them more eye-catching and easier to read. Plus, we've added a language selector to our small banner design, making it easier for your visitors to choose their preferred language.
2. Introducing the Accent Color Option:
Customizing your cookie banner just got a whole lot easier! Our new accent color feature allows you to add a splash of color to certain elements of your cookie banner. This simple, yet powerful tool is perfect for aligning your banner with your brand's color scheme. Just select your desired accent color, and watch your banner transform!
3. Flexibility and Compatibility:
We understand the importance of having options. That's why you can always roll back to a previous color palette by disabling the accent color feature. Don't worry, all existing banners with light or dark designs will retain their current color palette. But if you're feeling adventurous, you can switch them to the new design with just a click by selecting an accent color.
4. Available Across All Plans:
The best part? This new accent color feature is available to everyone, regardless of your pricing plan. Yes, even our Free plan users can enjoy this update!
Note:
If you had a highly customized banner, it's recommended to check if the new changes did not affect your customizations.
We're committed to continuous improvement and value your feedback. Try out these new features and let us know what you think. Your insights help us make CookieScript even better for everyone.
We have made some adjustments to how elements are placed in the dashboard. Cookie Banner settings were re-arranged and a new group was added to the Behavior tab: Frameworks. It now includes Google Consent Mode v2, IAB TCF 2.2, Facebook Pixel, GPC, and GA4 events.
Cookie Banner Analytics can be enabled using a dedicated option and can be found in the Main Settings tab.
We have also added some improvements to allow users to enable certain settings where they are needed. Like Consents and Analytics tabs allow you to enable necessary settings right in those tabs.
The new feature is designed to enhance transparency and compliance with data privacy regulations. When used, the CookieBanner displays information about the Local Storage and Session Storage used by a website in its cookie declaration. This includes details about the type of data stored and the purpose of the storage. The inclusion of local and session storage in the cookie declaration helps users understand how their data is being used and stored, alongside traditional cookies. This option is particularly useful for websites looking to provide comprehensive information about all types of data storage they utilize, thereby fostering trust and ensuring compliance with privacy laws.
All cookie scans from 2024-01-15 will automatically pick up Local Storage and Session Storage from your website. Showing them in the banner is optional and can be enabled in your banner > Cookies > "Show Local Storage and Session Storage in cookie declaration". If the website was scanned before 2024-01-15, you can just re-scan it.
Local Storage and Session Storage can be assigned to categories in your banner > Cookies > Storage report tab. By default, all storages land in the Strictly Necessary category, you can assign them to a different category manually.
We're excited to announce a valuable addition to our Cookie Banner Analytics - now you can track the accept, reject, and ignore rates of your cookie banners! This insightful feature is seamlessly integrated into the Analytics section of the banner, complementing our existing analytics data. Unlike other statistics, these rates are calculated per user, providing a more precise understanding of individual interactions with your banners.
To start seeing user interaction rates, simply re-save your banner, and you'll begin collecting this new set of data. Remember, Cookie Banner Analytics is an exclusive feature of our Plus plan. For more insights and tips on how to get the most out of our analytics tools, feel free to visit us at CookieScript Documentation. We're here to help you make the most of your website's user experience!
