Consent and Data Processing
Consent Settings

You can manage your site-wide privacy preferences on this page by clicking here.

No Consent Provided

When consent is not provided (i.e., the user ignores the banner or opts against Third-Party cookies’ enablement), Google Consent Mode allows GA4 and Google Ads to operate in a limited functionality mode. Here’s what happens:

  • Google Analytics 4 (GA4): GA4 can still collect basic interaction data such as page views and referral information even without consent for cookies. This data collection is done in a way that ensures the data is not used to create user profiles or for personalized advertising. Instead, it aggregates the data to provide basic insights about site traffic without linking data to individual users.
  • Google Ads: Without consent for advertising cookies, Google Ads will not use cookies for personalized advertising. Instead, the ads served might be based on the context of the page or other non-personal information. Conversion tracking will be significantly limited, and retargeting campaigns will not function.
Consent Provided

When consent is provided through the consent management plugin (i.e., the user clicks “Accept” or “Accept All” or manually enables Third-Party Cookies under settings):

  • Google Analytics 4 (GA4): Full tracking capabilities are enabled. This means GA4 will collect detailed user interaction data, including event tracking, user engagement metrics, and more detailed user journey information. This data can be used for creating user profiles and personalizing experiences.
  • Google Ads: With consent for advertising cookies, Google Ads can use cookies for personalized advertising and enhanced conversion tracking. This allows for more effective ad campaigns, retargeting, and detailed reporting on how users interact with ads.
