Newsletter 2020/11

Reports

Due to the high demand, we have concentrated this month on improving the reports. In addition to a more comfortable loading view, we have expanded the scope of reporting again and now also record visits, ignored consent layers, active jumps and more. This gives you an even more comprehensive picture of how your visitors interact with the consent layer.

Google Analytics & eTracker

For users of the analysis tools from Google and eTracker, we have also simplified the installation and handling. With the latest update, ConsentManager now supports the Google Consent Mode and the Consent Signal from eTracker. The tools can thus be used in such a way that a count takes place, but no cookies are set if no consent is given.

IAB TCF policy changes

As announced in the last newsletter the  IAB has adjusted the policy for participating in the IAB TCF. Please  note the following changes:

  • The design settings now show a  color contrast value when setting the color for  Accept-/Reject-/Settings-/Save-button. The IAB requires that the color  contrast is at least 5:1 (foreground vs background). With the current  update this contrast value will become mandatory. Designs that use a lower contrast value will lose the IAB compliance setting. Please check your designs.
  • With  the current update we have now disabled the possibility to change the  welcome text on the first layer in case when IAB TCF is activated in a  CMP. Clients that want to change the text, will need additional approval  by consentmanager. Existing texts will not be affected.
