Own opt-in dialogue

etracker offers the option of using your own opt-in dialogue for tracking. Consent or rejection to tracking is stored in the cookie “et_oi_v2”.

In addition to the current tracking code (at least version 4.0), the opt-in must be activated in the account settings: Account Info → Settings → Privacy → Tracking Opt-In and agreement → Opt-Inactive → own Opt-In

The tracking consents can be downloaded as a CSV file in the account settings under the menu item Tracking Opt-In and agreement.

Available JS-API functions
