Findings Definition

Comprehensive list of different findings the Web Auditor can detect, and what they mean.

  • Severity: Informational

This finding indicates that you are not using airgap.js to collect and enforce Consent on your website.

  • Severity: Varied
  • Requires: airgap.js being installed on the site being scanned.

"Unregulated" here means that airgap.js did not regulate the cookie at all -- that is, it did not have the chance to inspect the mutation/event and make a determination to block or allow based on user consent and bundle configuration.

We then assign different severity levels to the finding depending on the cookie's purposes as it was known by airgap.js at the time of the scan:

| Informational | A cookie marked with Essential purpose was stored without being regulated by airgap. | | Medium | A cookie not explicitly tagged with any tracking purpose was stored without being regulated by airgap. | | High | A cookie that was explicitly tagged with a non-essential tracking purpose was stored without being regulated by airgap. |
