Cybot Launches Painkiller For The EU Cookie Directive

ODENSE, Denmark, February 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Website owners in the EU face considerable fines for not being in compliance with the EU ePrivacy Directive. Cookiebot is a new cloud service that enables compliance within minutes by giving website users the choice of privacy.

Website owners in the European Union are struggling to comply with the EU ePrivacy Directive, also known as the EU Cookie Directive. Under the directive, every website owner is obliged to seek consent from the users before storing cookies in the users' web browser, which most websites do by default. The owners of non-compliant websites face considerable fines, e.g. in Great Britain of up to £500,000.

The newly founded cloud service company Cybot now launches the online self-serve service Cookiebot which makes it possible for website owners to comply with the EU directive within minutes.

User privacy the easy way

Until now, only a small fraction of European websites has succeeded in complying with the directive, mostly because there has been no easy, standardised and user-friendly way to implement the functionality. Cookiebot offers a standardised and hassle free way of collecting consents with minimum impact on usability.

In addition to legal requirements, Cookiebot documents every consent.  This way, collecting consents is not only about satisfying the EU directive, but also about reinforcing business critical user-trust and knowing the choices and true preferences of website users.

The consent platform on is a first step towards Cybot's goal in providing automated information services that must act only in agreement with the end user.


Cybot was founded in Denmark in 2012 by award winning entrepreneur, journalist, usability and IT expert Daniel Johannsen who has worked as a dedicated pioneer in Online Information Technology since 1999.

Cybot brings you cloud-based software robots that discover, analyse and compile information from the entire internet on your behalf. Cybot's mission is to turn information overload into personalised, high quality information that you actually want and need.
