I just finished the development phase and thanks for all the support for this extension.
This extension has the potential of becoming a practical tool in every user's day to day GDPR consent flow.
Incorporating human factors into data privacy to design available managers for GDPR consent is essential.
Our goal is to automatically enable choosing GDPR cookie consent settings to enforce the minimum data-collection for individuals across websites.
We provide two slider options to support four functions:
|Scope of "Apply"||Apply|
|for this site||for all site|
Auto Protection Enabled
|√||automatically set GDPR protection for the site currently visiting.|
|√||automatically set GDPR protection for all sites you visited|
User Disabled Protection
|√||withdraw GDPR consents for the current site and remember your choice||√||withdraw GDPR consents for all websites you visited in browser|
Regardless of the browsing history, the data collected is limited to specific consent cookies and classification results of third party cookies (*noted that first party cookies that may contain sensitive data would be excluded) that are different from the previous ones due to the installation of our extension, that is, the benefits of using our extension to manage GDPR cookie banners/notices. This data helps us explore how to better in favor of the GDPR consent management for users.
After you've installed our extension on your browser, our extension will start locally analyzing your cookies.
As proof-of-concept, we first crafted regular expressions (regex) to detect consent cookies and augment this approach with light-weight machine learning (ML) classifiers. Together, Regex+ML approach robustly identifies GDPR consent-related cookie names with high accuracy and low time cost.
We are using machine learning models to classify cookies into four categories: Strictly Necessary, Functionality, Performance and Targeting/Advertising Cookies, providing over 90% accuracy of prediction.
If you are installing our extension for the first time, the extension will pop up a survey website that will help us gather your understanding of GDPR-related questions. You can also reach the Survey Website from the secondary panel of the extension.
Your survey responses will be used in our research only if you provide explicit consent. Please note that even if you consent, we will never store any personal identifiers in our collected data; any data collected will be used only for the purposes of non-commercial academic research.
Our extension will start analyzing your cookies as soon as it is installed, but all analysis will happen locally on your computer, so your privacy or security are not compromised in any way.
We support a number of CMPs. In addition, our advanced Machine Learning models detect other GDPR consent cookies beyond these CMPs as well. However, our solution may fail to detect some cookie consent banners. Please get in touch (Contact Form) if you see a site that is not yet supportedCMP List
