    Hi Elizabeth,

    Cookiebot performs a geo-location lookup in real-time for each user, based on the user's anonymized IP. If you want to perform a similar lookup before loading Cookiebot, you would need to use a separate third party service for that (we do not recommend any particular service).

    Regards,

    FYI, in case anybody else is needing geo-IP services: I've implemented the free MaxMind product:

    ...with the PHP API, plus the optional C add-on (for greatly increased speed):

    This is working very nicely for me.
