How does UniConsent analyse websites for cookie changes and audit your website?
UniConsent GDPR Cookie Scanner will visit your website once per day to detect cookie changes. You can also manually trigger the cookie scanner via the UniConsent Cookie Management Console.
By default, the Cookie Scanner will only visit the homepage of your website, but you can add other web pages which use different script tags or cookies.
If a cookie can't be detected automatically by the cookie scanner, you can add it on your website manually. You can also override the cookie info at the UniConsent Cookies Management Console.
You can see the details of all detected cookies found on your website, the details will be listed within the UniConsent CMP widget on your website, keeping the widget updated with any changes so your users can manage their consent.
UniConsent will detect a cookie and automatically try and categorise it for you but, you can change this within the CMP console or add cookies manually into categories.
