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.

The plugin is so useful, we could easily sell it for $1000. But we don’t! Find out the actual prices:

GDPR and the PixelYourSite Plugin

PixelYourSite implements the Facebook pixel, Google Analytics, and the Pinterest tag. Chances are that you have other scripts or third-party cookies running on your website (embedded videos, ad networks, chats, etc). In order to be GDPR compliant, you’ll need to implement a technical solution that will inform and obtain consent for all your tracking scripts and cookies. That’s why we don’t implement an individual solution to gather consent for our plugin only. We will offer a few ways to integrate with other existing cookie policy plugins.

Cookie Policy Implementations

You will have automatic integrations with 4 cookie consent plugins

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: pys_disable_by_gdpr, pys_disable_facebook_by_gdpr, pys_disable_analytics_by_gdpr or pys_disable_pinterest_by_gdpr.

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

Facebook Pixel

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.

Inform your users that they can control their privacy settings from here: https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen

Google Analytics

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.

Pinterest Tag

It is used for Pinterest ads and does use private data that can identify your users. You will need to ask for prior consent.
