Services play a pivotal role in CookieHub by establishing connections between cookies and vendors. Within this framework, a single vendor can be associated with numerous services, while each service has the capability to configure multiple cookies. To facilitate this process, CookieHub maintains a comprehensive global list of widely recognized services, automatically detected during cookie scans.
However, the flexibility of CookieHub extends further as users can also create custom services, subsequently linking them to specific cookies and vendors as needed. This powerful feature empowers users to tailor their cookie management approach to their unique requirements and preferences.
To establish a custom service in CookieHub, follow these straightforward steps:
- Begin by clicking the "Account" link in the top menu.
- From there, select "Services" to navigate to the Services section.
- In the Services section, locate and click the "Add Service" button.
- In the ensuing dialog box, provide a name for your custom service that aptly describes its function.
- Next, select the primary cookie category to be associated with this service.
- Choose the relevant vendor for this service. If the vendor isn't already in your list, you can effortlessly create a custom vendor as well.
- If applicable and known, specify the location of processing for this service.
- Conclude by typing a concise description of the service.
- Finally, confirm the addition of your custom service by clicking the "Add Service" button.
To assign this service to a cookie, refer to the comprehensive guide on "Assigning Services to Cookies" for further instructions.
To link a service to a cookie on a domain within your CookieHub account, carefully follow these steps:
- Start by clicking on the "Domains" link located in the top menu.
- Choose the specific domain that you wish to edit.
- Within the domain's settings, navigate to the "Cookies" tab.
- Locate the cookie you wish to associate with a service, and click the "Edit" button beside it.
- In the subsequent dialog, select the appropriate service from the "Service" dropdown menu.
- Confirm your selection by clicking the "Save Cookie Details" button.
- To ensure the changes take effect, click the "Save & Publish" button.
