Management of the client idclient before consent

Since version 5.16.0, the tracker has had a global method ATInternet.Utils.consentReceived  enabling a specific user data processing mode on the first page of the site (or consent page). Enabling this mode causes the generation of a hit containing a idclient correctly formatted (guid) and it not being saved on the browser. In this way, we guarantee that the data will not be tracked while keeping a useful identifier for the measurement.

Three scenarios are thus possible:

  • The user leaves the site on the first page:
    • When the first page is loaded, a hit containing idclient is sent without the information being stored on the browser.
    • If the user returns later to the site, a new idclient will then be generated.
  • The Internet user continues to navigate:
    • When the first page is loaded, a hit containing idclient is sent without the information being stored on the browser.
    • The generated idclient can be retrieved using the function tag.clientsideuserid.get() and then added as a parameter in any URL leading to navigation on the site (clicking on a link, etc.).
    • After retrieving the parameter from destination page, it can be saved using function tag.clientSideUserId.set(idclient) to ensure the continuity of the measurement. See Unique visitor identification for more details.
  • The Internet user gives his consent on the first page (banner, etc.)
    • It is possible to force the storage of idclient after obtaining user consent by using the function tag.clientSideUserId.store()
 

Examples

  1. Mode activation
    ATInternet.Utils.consentReceived(false);
    var tag = new ATInternet.Tracker.Tag();
    tag.page.set({
        name:'pageName',
        customObject: {
            MyPageLabel:'my_page',
            MyChapters: {level1:'my_chapter1', level2:'my_sub_chapter1', level3:'my_sub_chapter2' }
        }
    });
    tag.dispatch();
  2. Recovering the client idc
    var idclient = tag.clientSideUserId.get();
    
  3. Forced storage of the client idclient after consent
    tag.clientSideUserId.store();
