Why is Real Cookie Banner a subscription?

Real Cookie Banner is a complex WordPress plugin on which a team of several people has been working full-time since 2020. The plugin offers you new features and service templates on a regular basis. Moreover, in addition to changes in the law, there are also a lot of court decisions in data protection law that influence how a legally compliant cookie banner must look like. We try to keep track of these changes and provide you with the legal changes as conveniently as possible via updates. This is the only way to keep the cookie banner on your website legally compliant in the long run.

Setting up a cookie banner correctly is a case-by-case decision from website to website, not only technically but also in terms of legal considerations. If you take data protection seriously, questions will inevitably arise. You can find many answers directly in Real Cookie Banner as well as in our knowledge base. In order to set up everything correctly in your cookie banner, you will also have individual questions, which our experts will be happy to answer in our email support. And not only during the initial setup, but also when your website grows over time with additional services that require consent.

This effort causes corresponding running costs that have to be covered. To be able to offer you this service in the described quality, we have to ask you for an annual fee for the WordPress plugin.
