What is React Cookie Kit
The React Cookie Kit is special purpose build of the XcooBee Cookie Kit (XCK) Cookie Consent Management library for use in ReactJS environments. The React Cookie Kit is not just an information overlay. It is an active cookie and consent manager for your site. Most current cookie GDPR notices for websites are just that: Overlays that display information but do not actively manage cookie creation and life-cycles. You are still responsible for handling cookies and fingerprinting correctly. In contrast to this, the react cookie kit is a true cookie-consent and life-cycle manager. It will help you implement the premises of the GDPR and European e-directive correctly.
The XcooBee Cookie Kit
The objective of the XcooBee Cookie Kit (XCK) is to enable websites to manage their Cookie consent more effectively and with less annoyance to their users. The XCK can work in concert with the XcooBee network to improve overall management for users and businesses but that is not required. When the XCK works independently of XcooBee some management functionality will not be available.
The XCK makes it easy to plugin cookie consent into your website. It handles all user interaction to obtain consent and lets the website know which cookies can be used for each users while they visit your website. Similarly, your website can now be informed when users change their consent even when they are not visiting it.
THe XCK is one of the most transparent and frictionless ways to manage cookies on your site. It will not pop-up, in, or otherwise hinder the user experience when it is not needed. Yet, at the same time, it provides full compliance with European e-directives and related GDPR rules.
Website owners can easily react to data-requests and report on privacy related requests if needed via the XcooBee network.
The XCK does not require a XcooBee connection to work for your website. You will still have access to the majority of user consent gathering but will not have central insight and consent management.
The XCK is responsive and will adjust easily to different screens including mobile uses.
