The Cookie Collective is a privacy centric technology business formed in response to the market demand for new services and expertise to help businesses understand and comply with EU privacy legislation that has since become known as The Cookie Laws.
We were the first people to start talking about the forthcoming Cookie Crunch (follow us on Twitter as @TheCookieCrunch) - a term that was later picked up and used by the mainstream media.
We provide commercial privacy compliance tools and services under the Optanon brand name. We are also responsible for the Cookiepedia website, which provides knowledge and data about cookies, promoting transparency about tracking activity on some of the world’s favourite sites.
Our Plans for the Future
We believe online privacy is going to become an ever more important part of the web's ecosystem. There is already an inherent tension between the rights and desires of consumers to be anonymous on the web, and the commercial interests of businesses which invest billions in creating the services we have all come to rely upon.
There are a host of new regulations, standards and technologies that are currently being discussed by governments, businesses, and web standards bodies all over the world. Any one of these developments could re-shape not just online privacy, but the whole web experience, for many years to come. If only some of the proposals come into effect, the impact will be significant.
We are following and participating in the debate. More importantly we are continuing to invest in new products and services, as well as enhancing our existing offerings, so that we can help our clients prepare for this future.
We believe privacy is important. It is just as important to businesses as the customers they serve. A business that respects the privacy rights and preferences of its customers wins their trust. This trust is vital to the future of the web. Without it businesses cannot develop sustainable growth, and consumers won't get the products and services they want.
We are committed to helping our clients build consumer trust through transparent data practices
