Element Description

Enable EU compliance for Adobe Analytics

Enables or disables tracking based on the EU privacy cookie.

When a page is loaded, the system checks to see if a cookie called sat_track is set (or the custom cookie name specified on the Edit Property page). Consider the following information:

  • If the cookie does not exist or if the cookie exists and is set to anything but true , the loading of the tool is skipped when this setting is enabled. Meaning, any portion of a rule that uses the tool will not apply.

    If a rule has analytics with EU compliance on and third-party code, and the cookie is set to false , the third-party code still runs. However, the analytics variables will not be set.

  • If the cookie exists but it is set to true , the tool loads normally.

You are responsible for setting the sat_track (or custom named) cookie to false if a visitor opts out. You can accomplish this using custom code:

_satellite.setCookie("sat_track", "false");

You must also have a mechanism to set that cookie to true if you want a visitor to be able to opt in later:

_satellite.setCookie("sat_track", "true");
