Vendors list management

The Vendor List Manager is designed to help you identify, qualify and manage the CMP vendor list for your website.

General overview

In a simple way, you can add or remove vendors to your list and then export the list for use in building your CMP notice.

The main goal is to have the number of detected vendors equal to the number of vendors declared in the CMP.

The second goal is to get rid of vendors which are not active anymore on your website to reduce your vendor list.

In the Vendor List Manager you have 3 main parts :

Key indicators

This part provides indicators regarding the vendor on your website.

The first line displays information about your current environment following a scan,

the second line is a projected view of your future environment once you have updated your CMP.

The main indicators (those of your current environment) are clickable. Each of them will give a specific view on the table below.

Informative text

For each main indicator, an informative text accompanies it to help you understand the information displayed or the actions you can take.

Table

The table allows you to have detailed information on the vendors like its name, its category or its trust index.

Section details

Here you have a detailed information about each section.

All indicators are related to the selected period.

Vendors detected

This section displays all vendors that were detected on your website.

Detected in CMP

This section displays vendors that were detected on your CMP’s website (active or not).

Active and in CMP

This section displays vendors that are active and declared in your CMP.

Active but not in CMP

This section displays vendors that are active but are not declared in your CMP.

To be in compliance with the law you must declare these vendors in your CMP.

We recommend that you add these vendors to your vendor list in order to update your CMP.

Ideally this number should be equal to 0.

Inactive and in CMP

This section displays vendors that were detected on your CMP but were not active for the selected period.

We recommend to remove these vendors in order to reduce your vendor list.

Projected vendor list

This part represents your ongoing project.

When you declare a new vendor or remove one, those indicators will show you the result of your actions.

Declared in this vendor list project

This represents the state of your future vendor list once you have exported your project and updated your CMP.

This icon indicates that the number of vendor has increased

This icon indicates that the number of vendors has decreased

Table

The table allows you to have detailed information on vendors

  • Declared : if the vendor is newly declared in the vendor list
  • Vendor name
  • Its trust index
  • Its category
  • If the vendor is in the IAB TCF V2 or not
  • Its country

You also have the ability to add or remove a vendor from your vendor list directly with the last column

Filters

When you want to search for a specific vendor you can type its name on the search bar.

You can also use filters to be more precise in your research.

All the filters are cumulative and you can select multiple of them.

For example, you can search for vendors that only declared Consent as legal basis and in the TCF with a trust index of D.

When you are done you can click on the Clear all button to clear all filters.

Vendor details

By clicking on the vendor name you can access the details of it.

By clicking on FEATURES AND PURPOSES tab, you access the vendor's configuration regarding the legal bases associated with the purposes and features.
