Respect Do Not Track - JS Tracker


#1

With GDPR thoughts very much alive at the moment, I’d just like a quick clarification on how the JS tracker handles Do No Track settings within browsers.

If respectDoNotTrack is not in the argmap in the tracker script, will Snowplow by default ignore the Do Not Track option, or do you have to manually set it to False for it to be ignored?

TIA

#2

As far as I remember, sp ignores doNotTrack as long as you explicite say not to ignore. Note, IE10 and Edge would have do not track set to true by default.


#3

The respectDoNotTrack parameter defaults to false if not specified[1].
