Can I create an extra cookie category and use it for a subset of the marketing cookies – e.g. to allow the user to opt out of cookies from a particular provider?

Please note that this is no longer being updated. Kindly visit the new Cookiebot support area for updated guides, articles and FAQs. If you do not find the answer to your question there, you are welcome to post it in the Cookiebot community.  

It is not possible to create additional cookie categories. The user’s consent will be for the entire category i.e. all marketing cookies or all statistics cookies.

You can, however, rename the existing 4 categories (necessary, preferences, statistics and marketing) if you would like (see: https://cybot.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1854097-can-i-rename-the-4-cookie-categories) .
