Detailed Analysis #

GDPR / CCPA/ LGPD compliance #

For GDPR, CCPA, LGPD, and other privacy laws compliance these things are needed overall:

  • Receive users’ consent before you use any cookies
  • Consent logs – Document and store consent for proof
  • Cookie Policy, Privacy policy

Receive users’ consent

Both Iubenda and Cookiezen provide a cookie banner but with different limits. Iubenda gives only 50,000 page views in the lowest tier whereas Cookiezen gives 5 million pageviews in the base plan

Consent logs

Iubenda gives only Consent logs in the highest Appsumo plan making the first 2 plans GDPR non-compliant cookie consent whereas in Cookiezen even the lowest plan has Consent logs making it a full privacy compliance solution

Cookie Policy & Privacy Policy

Both Iubenda and Cookiezen have Cookie and Privacy policies.

Please Note: Privacy policy will be coming as an update in the next 3-4 months.

Limits and Pricing #

Before starting the analysis here is a screenshot of both pricing tables for reference

Iubenda Pricing

Cookiezen Pricing

Okay now let’s compare on -> Websites, Pageviews, consent logs, and focus on both

Some background:

Iubenda  5 slot licenses allow you to generate either 5 privacy and cookie policies or 1 privacy policy, cookie policy, and terms and conditions document for one site. So basically in Iubenda 1 site = 5 licenses

Websites limits ->

Iubenda gives 1 site for $59, 3 for $118, and 5 sites for $177 whereas Cookiezen provides 3 sites for $79 and 12 sites for $159, and 25 sites for $249. So Cookiezen has the same website limit for half the price.

Pageviews limit ->

Iubenda’s low limits like 50k page views/ website in all packs are suitable only for a very low-traffic website, but Cookiezen is fit for medium to high-traffic sites with a 1m+ website visitor limit each month!

Consent logs ->

This is the biggest difference between both, Cookiezen gives Consent Solution in all the plans making your website GDPR compliant whereas Iubenda only includes it in the $177 plan making the first 2 tiers non-GDPR compliant

Focus ->

Cookiezen focuses on making an all-in-one privacy solution that makes websites full data privacy regulation compliant with global laws like GDPR, CCPA, CNIL, etc. Secondly, agencies and website owners will find it super easy to use which you can set up in minutes.

Whereas Iubenda is trying to build an all-in-one legal solution. But it comes with drawbacks like low website, page view, and consent logs limit. Also, Iubenda I heard from many users is confusing to use and set up.

Ease of use #

Cookiezen is built for non-techies so it is very easy to use all you need is a few clicks and 10-15 minutes to create your own cookie banner from scratch.

Whereas Iubenda I heard from many users is confusing to use and set up so if you are using both Cookiezen and Iubenda for the first time you might find Cookiezen way easier and quicker to set up!

Agency Features #

Cookiezen is focused on Agency owners so they can manage and make their client’s website compliant without too much hassle which Iubenda doesn’t focus on.

  • Assigning domain to a particular client – Iubenda doesn’t, Cookiezen has in an upcoming update
  • Template so cookie consent for a new client can be created quickly instead of creating from scratch – Iubenda doesn’t, Cookiezen has in an upcoming update
  • Manage multiple domains from a single dashboard – Both Iubenda and Cookiezen have this
