Information on GDPR for EU users

Deprecated

This API was discontinued.

Verify user consent

Read more about GDPR in our HELP section. Once the user gave consent, you can use this API. The code below needs to be adjusted based on the user's answer.

At Smartlook we use a pop-up window to ask for user consent. You should implement a similar solution on your site.

Verify if a visitor gave their consent or not:

<script>
  smartlook(function() {
    console.log(smartlook.consent.api)
    console.log(smartlook.consent.forms)
    console.log(smartlook.consent.ip)
  });
</script>

There are 3 possible values that you can see in the console:

  • true if user agreed and provided consent
  • false if user refused to provide consent
  • null if user was not asked for consent yet

Form inputs

User consented to have their form inputs recorded.

<script>
  // in this variable insert your consent
  var consentText = 'Here goes consent text from your website.';

  // choose only one variable
  var clientDecision = true; // if user agreed and provided consent
  var clientDecision = false; // if user refused to provide consent

  smartlook('consentForms', clientDecision ? consentText : false);
</script>

IP address

User consented to have their IP address recorded.

<script>
  // in this variable insert your consent
  var consentText = 'Here goes consent text from your website.';

  // choose only one variable
  var clientDecision = true; // if user agreed and provided consent
  var clientDecision = false; // if user refused to provide consent

  smartlook('consentIP', clientDecision ? consentText : false);
</script>

Identify user via API

User consented to being identified via the API.

<script>
  // in this variable insert your consent
  var consentText = 'Here goes consent text from your website.';

  // choose only one variable
  var clientDecision = true; // if user agreed and provided consent
  var clientDecision = false; // if user refused to provide consent

  smartlook('consentAPI', clientDecision ? consentText : false);
</script>

GDPR safe data
