Cookie Control from Civic UK:
-Cookie Control supports an unlimited number of categories. The categories can be updated/added at any point.
-Cookie Control allows the user to define the time period that the consent is valid for. Also Cookie Control can be configured to request user consent if there is a change in the privacy policy of the website.
-All Cookie Control Licences have no page limits including the free one. The Pro version simply offers more features like unlimited subdomains geolocation, multilingual support, integration with IAB and branding.
-All licence costs are annual.
