How does Piwik PRO Consent Manager work?
Consent Manager quickly processes consent changes and data subject requests
Turn GDPR compliance
on & off
Turn on the GDPR compliance features when regulations require you to or turn it off if you are handling the consent mechanism by other means. Apply the settings to any website to change the mechanism for firing tags. Piwik PRO will trigger tags and collect data accordingly:
GDPR compliance is off – new visitors opted-in by default
GDPR compliance is on – new visitors opted-out by default and will receive a consent form pop-up.
Collect visitor consents
First-time visitors receive a consent form asking for permission to collect data for a defined set of purposes (which you can specify and update at any moment). Until the consent is given, certain categories of tags won’t be fired (only tags that don’t require consent will be fired). If a visitor does not consent to some or all data collection purposes, the corresponding tags will stay disabled, and you’ll stay compliant with GDPR. You can set which tags require GDPR consent and assign a consent category for all custom tags.
Collect and manage data subject requests
The data subject request widget lets visitors submit all requests required by GDPR: data erasure, rectification, access and portability. With Piwik PRO you can monitor all submitted requests, view individual visitor consent status and data subject request history from one place. Review each request and change its processing status, find out when a request has been submitted, and keep track of progress and status to make sure all are processed in a timely manner.

GDPR Consent Use cases
Remind your visitors to fill out the consent form by displaying a bar at the top or bottom of the page (this bar will be fired only if GDPR compliance is turned on). Upon clicking it, the visitor will see the consent form. This reminder about visitors rights regarding collection and processing of their data will be shown to visitors until they submit the form.
Check visitor’s consent and request history
View the history of any visitor’s consent status and data subject requests. Quickly verify the validity of any request and check if a visitor has contacted you before. Check any updates in the visitor consent history as data subject requests are saved in the GDPR Consent Manager database.
