    New Applications

    Consent Manager

    The newest addition to the Piwik PRO Marketing Suite family was designed to make it easier to respect GDPR rights by allowing you to collect visitor consents for specific data processing purposes, and to handle consent changes and other requests all in one place.

    Consent Manager has features covering the entire visitor life cycle: from obtaining the consent of a new visitor to addressing data subject rights requests.

    Piwik PRO Consent Manager also supports the exercise of data subjects’ rights. Installing the Data Subject Request and Privacy Settings widgets on a Privacy Policy page will let visitors exercise their GDPR data subject rights such as data erasure, rectification, access, and portability.
