The 5 Consent Management Platforms (CMP) Google is recommending

Since 25th of May, due to GDPR, advertisers and publishers need to have consent tools informing about the cookie usage and asking consent for the data.

What is the best Consent Management Platform (CMP)?

Now, OneTrust is beating the competition in terms of advantages, specially the free version.

If that happens, Cookie Control can be better than OneTrust, as the price is lower. Cookiebot seems to be a suitable option, if your website has less than 100 pages.
