Nocodelytics is designed to respect user’s wishes in terms of consent. This is particularly important in regions like the European Union where the GDPR requires consent be taken before storing any personal information about visitors.
In this guide, we'll go over how Nocodelytics works and how you can maintain compliance with the GDPR.
How Nocodelytics' tracking works
Nocodelytics tracker assigns a unique ID to each visitor which is stored on their device in something called local storage. When the user returns, Nocodelytics will check if they have an existing ID and then continue to attribute activity to the same visitor ID.
On top of this, Nocodelytics captures the user’s IP address and stores this in our database. This information is used to provide information about the visitor’s location.
How to stay compliant
In order to use Nocodelytics and stay fully GDPR-compliant, you will need to use a cookie management solution which will only load Nocodelytics when the user has consented.
If a user does not consent, then the Nocodelytics tracker should not load and no activity will be recorded. Check the solution you've picked to ensure it has this functionality, otherwise you are unlikely to be fully GDPR-compliant.
Here are the steps you usually need to take to ensure you are compliant with GDPR when using Nocodelytics:
- Install a cookie management solution (such as Finsweet's Cookie Consent tool for Webflow).
- Copy the Nocodelytics script to your site’s Project Settings.
- Tag the script accordingly so that the cookie management solution knows it is an analytics related script.
Make sure to follow the instructions laid out by the cookie management solution that you have chosen so that it is set up correctly.
How to use Nocodelytics without requiring cookie consent
We're working on a way for Nocodelytics to be fully compliant out of the box. This would mean we'd still be able to track most activity from a visitor but would not store any personal information until the user has given their consent.
