Cookie GDPR compliance and the Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics, or the Pinterest Tag
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires companies and site owners to be transparent about how they collect, use, and share personal data.
This regulation applies to all EU based visitors, regardless of the location of the company or person controlling the website.
You’ll have 4 different integrations with cookie consent plugins and dedicated filters to control each pixel.
GDPR and the PixelYourSite Plugin
How does PixelYourSite work with these plugins
When any of the above plugins are activated on your website, PixelYourSite will automatically integrate with them.
Enable the integration and save the settings.
How to integrate with other cookie consent solutions
Plugins and themes can use following filters to control each pixel:
First filter will disable all pixels, other can be used to disable a particular pixel. Simply pass
TRUE value to disable a pixel.
If you use a different cookie consent solution, contact their developer and ask them to implement our filters.
Inform your visitors about their options
The Facebook Pixel is used for Facebook Ads and Facebook Analytics. It does use private data and you will need to ask for prior consent. Facebook has also implemented flexible ways for their users to see and control how the pixel is used on partner websites.

By default, Google Analytics doesn’t track private data. This implementation will probably not require prior consent. If you turn on Google Analytics Advertising features, Remarketing features, or if you link your Analytics account to your AdSense account, you will start to send personal data. In this case, prior consent is required.
