"ReportLab is the only reporting solution whose scalability, speed and flexibility can keep up in the ever changing landscape of cookie compliance."
-- Stephen Hickey, Operations and Delivery Director, Cookie Reports
How much do you know about European cookie compliance laws?
If your answer to this question is "What's a cookie?", you're not alone. If your answer is "Everything.", you're probably Cookie Reports.
Cookie Reports was launched on the Sitemorse web governance platform, Sitemorse spending the last 12 years perfecting technologies to profile a company's entire web estate, highlight key problems through careful analysis, and implement strategies to reduce risk and protect online investment. An obvious application of this ability is the auditing and reporting of cookies (small packets of data sent from a website and stored on the user's browser) as they became high profile topics in Europe.
Cookie Reports was born out of a widespread need to quickly analyse sprawling collections of websites and rapidly move towards security, maintainability, and compliance.
A key function of this offering is the ability to generate customised reports, displaying the wide range of available data in a compelling and professional way. ReportLab was the natural choice due to its ability to handle the sheer volume of data (scaling from 1,000 to 100,000 pages per month with no issues), while still providing total flexibility regarding the layout and design.
In a time of increasing online complexity and confusion, Cookie Reports and ReportLab are showing that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
