When a contact interacts with your cookie policy banner, you can view that interaction in HubSpot. Below, learn about the ways that you can view and analyze cookie policy interactions, including creating reports.

To view a single contact's interaction with the cookie policy banner:

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Contacts > Contacts.
  • Click the name of the contact to check their interaction with the cookie policy banner.
  • Check the contact's timeline for a consent event. If the contact interacted with the banner, it should state if the contact accepted, declined or revoked the cookie policy banner.

To create a list of contacts who've had a certain interaction with the cookie policy banner:

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Contacts > Lists.
  • In the upper right, click Create list.
  • In the upper left, enter the name of your list.
  • In the left panel, select Contact properties and then, Privacy Consent.
  • Select the appropriate filter and value.
    • Approved: the contact accepted the cookie policy banner.
    • Declined: the contact declined the cookie policy banner.
    • Revoked: the contact's cookies were removed. Learn more about the Remove cookies API.
  • Click Save and let the list process. It will display the contacts that meet your filter criteria.
