Consent Manager Overview

April 6, 2018

Consent Manager in order to respect user privacy and comply with GDPR regulations, lets you gather visitor consents to collect data and efficiently manage all data subject requests from one place. Your visitors can submit all requests required by GDPR: data erasure, rectification, access, and portability. With Piwik PRO you can monitor all submitted requests, view individual visitor consent status and data subject request history from one place.

Once GDPR compliance is turned on, first-time visitors receive a consent form asking for permission to collect data for a defined set of purposes, which you can specify an update at any moment:

Until the consent is given, certain categories of tags (e.g. analytics, A/B testing, remarketing and other that you can define) won’t be fired. Only tags that don’t require consent will be fired. If a visitor does not consent to some or all data collection purposes, the corresponding tags will stay disabled, and you’ll stay compliant with GDPR. You can set which tags require GDPR consent and assign a consent category for all custom tags.

With Piwik PRO you can monitor all submitted requests, view individual visitor consent status and data subject request history from one place:

Consent Manager collects anonymous data about each visitor’s consent decision. Metrics are presented on a chart – Consent Manager Insights:

Last but not least, on your privacy policy page, according to GDPR, your visitors should be able to review and adjust their consent status and exercise data subject rights such as Data erasure, Data rectification, and Data access and portability. With Piwik PRO Marketing Suite you can meet those requirements using Privacy Policy Page Widgets.
