If you want to target the collection of consent to visitors from specific countries or regions in the world, Cookiebot CMP can in real-time determine which country the individual user comes from, and display the consent banner only to visitors from the selected countries and regions.
For all other visitors your website will function unchanged.

To specify a region in which consent needs to be collected you can take the following steps:

The latter five options can be expanded into subregions, which in turn can be expanded into countries / states.
Remember to save your changes by clicking the "Save changes" button in the top right corner when you have selected the region to display the banner in.
How do we determine where a user is located?
We determine a user's location based on their IP address and we use a third-party service IP2Location for this.
