The below warning from the wizard is for everyone who wants Google Site Kit and Complianz to work together. There are a couple of options you can consider, we will walk you through all, so you can make an educated choice for your purpose.

Because you’re using Google Site Kit, you can choose which plugin should insert the relevant snippet.

Possible configurations;

  1. Complianz will add the Analytics snippet. Google Site Kit will only report.
  2. Google Site Kit will add the Analytics snippet. Complianz handles consent only.
  3. Complianz will add the Tag Manager snippet to handle consent. Google Site Kit should not implement the Tag Manager snippet.

To add the UA code, you will start under

  1. Go to Complianz
  2. Wizard -> Step: Cookies -> Section: Statistics
  3. Answer the following question as such;

Question:  Do you compile statistics of your website?

Answer:  Yes, with Google Analytics

If you have answered this question as shown and finished the wizard, consent management is now set-up to handle analytics for your relevant region. To make sure Google Site Kit does not implement the snippet as well, please do the following;

If you want Google Site Kit to insert the analytics snippet, you can keep the default settings. In Complianz do the following;
  1. Go to Complianz
  2. Wizard -> Step: Cookies -> Section: Statistics
  3. Answer the following question based on your preference;

Question:  Do you compile statistics of your website?

Answer:  Yes, anonymous

If you have answered this question as shown above and finished the wizard, consent management is now set-up to handle analytics for your relevant region. In the case of anonymous statistics, the analytics script will be set before consent, but not in Germany, the UK or other regions, where it will be set after consent for statistics.

If this is not correct. Change your answer to:

Question:  Do you compile statistics of your website?

Answer:  Yes, and personal data is available to us.

This way statistics will only be set after consent on statistics.

It might be you’re using Tag Manager. In this case you should Complianz let handle the implementation. This way we can communicate with the Tag Manager container with custom events. more about configuring Tag Manager after finishing the wizard, read this instruction manual.
