OneTrust vs Privacybunker technical review

Privacybunker.IO Founder

An open-source developer that helps companies and startups to solve data security and privacy challenges.

One of our prospects emailed us a question:

“Why would I use Privacybunker if I can pick OneTrust?”

First of all, OneTrust is a very respectful company, with lots of customers. OneTrust provides a big number of tools that spans privacy and 3rd party vendor analysis. At first, I was very skeptical about the comparison, thinking that OneTrust wipes out all competitors. Nevertheless, I decided to spend a couple of hours conducting my research. As a result, I found a number of strong competitive advantages in favor of Privacybunker.

When conducting the research, I identified a number of GDPR violations that are easy to spot in a number of OneTrust’s customers. Some of these companies are billion-dollar companies.

In the course of my research, I found the following:

  1. You can pick an industry leader like OneTrust, but you might still have the basic GDPR violations.
  2. You need to have a professional team that knows how to implement the best industry practices and fix the HTML code on your corporate website.
  3. And, guess what? Privacybunker has a team of professional experts for you that can treat GDPR violations on your website. You can read a full report now.

OneTrust customers

At this step, I decided to look for OneTrust customers and check their websites for GDPR violations.

Here is a list of websites that I found. Some of the companies worth billions of dollars:

From this list, I found only that Sodexo has implemented OneTrust properly. The other companies have GDPR violations that are easy to spot.

My conclusion is that you can pick an industry leader like OneTrust, but you might still have the basic GDPR violations. You need to have a professional team that knows how to implement the best industry practices on HTML level on your website.

To check the websites, we use our Website Scanner to find GDPR violations. It is safe and non intrusive tool.
