    Hi. One of my ad agencies ask me to provide a 'consent string' as described on https://blog.smartadserver.com/gdpr/gdpr-understanding-iab-europes-transparency-consent-framework/

    Is there any way to get such a string from Cookiebot?

    TIA,

    I answer to myself: there is a forum post that address the issue I was asking for: https://support.cookiebot.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360025082294-IAB-framework-consent-string-and-CookieBot

    I really wish you would take the time to update your documentation. Even though you recently updated this page to address IAB version 2.0, your information about Google Tag Implementation is still outdated. (You now have 3rd party Cookiebot tags available in GTM, that when used, only require a checkbox next to IAB to be checked in order to implement the IAB functionality.)

    Unfortunately, Brians article at https://support.cookiebot.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015693200-Your-Cookiebot-banner-when-using-the-IAB-TCF-v2-0-integration is closed for comments, so I add them here:

    Now that Cookiebot is strictly enforcing the new banner template when IAB is enabled on a site, we expect to see a dramatic drop of cookie acceptance due to the now exposed "necessary only" button.

    There are Publishers out there running CMPs with a much more "relaxed" template, especially without a "necessary cookies only" .   This is our competition, and not having that button is a huge advantage the have over us.

    I think that the Publisher should be in charage of what is displayed ... without IAB, we can (and do) use custom templates that might be seen controversial - but we do so at our own risk. The same  should be possible if IAB is enabled ...

    Ulrich, IAB is holding all TCF2 CMP's including Cookiebot responsible for compliance with TCF2 policies, not the individual publisher, which would seem more logical, as it is the publisher's property we are serving. If just a single site does not comply, IAB will block TCF2 for all sites across independent publishers using the same CMP. This is why we as a CMP have no choice to allow publishers to implement their own configuration.

    That said, we are currently discussing with IAB whether removing the opt-out-button would comply with the TFC policy, if the consent banner at the same time provides non-preticked checkboxes along with the "Allow Selection" button, which is in fact a full opt-out and also increases general opt-in rates by about 20% in avarage.

    As IAB is currently changing other parts of their policy, we will post an update soon when we have adapted those changes. In the meantime, IAB's recommendation is to report non-compliant competitors to framework@iabeurope.eu.

    The article says:

    "Please also make an attestation of compliance in a prominent location on your website, such as in a privacy policy".

    When I follow the link from the article to the IAB TCF website, I find section 19.2 which says this about the notice in the privacy policy:

    "This language must at a minimum include: [...] the IAB Europe assigned ID of the CMP that the publisher uses."

    What is CookieBot's ID as assigned by IAB Europe?

    After a lot of searching, I finally found what I believe is CookieBot's ID as assigned by IAB Europe: 134 (source). Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Following IAB Europe's rules, we as publishers should include text like this in our privacy policies (replace XYZ with the name of your organization):

    XYZ participates in the IAB Europe Transparency & Consent Framework and complies with its specifications and policies. XYZ uses the Consent Management Platform with the identification number 134.

    Martin, Cookiebot IAB TCF CMP id is 134. We have updated the article to make this clear, thank you.
