The Privacy Suite for WordPress

Whitelisting inline script

Get compliant today in the European Union, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia & South Africa with the only Privacy Suite for WordPress that offers a fully-featured plugin for Worldwide Compliance.

Complianz uses a regular expression to find 3rd party services in inline scripts. Below we will take an example of a Podcast Player that creates an inline script. The output also contains data related to social media hyperlinks or instagram.com in this specific case. In most use cases we will find instagram.com as a link, directly related to the service which is Instagram itself, or a plugin that provides a service like embedding Instagram posts.

But not in this case. Podcast outputs data collections but does not invoke any Instagram related services. And it does not set any other related to 3rd parties, meaning it can be set before consent. But Complianz blocked the script before consent, even if it didn’t have to.

The reason why Complianz blocked the script is because the user had Instagram embedded and enabled in Complianz, but gave a false positive on the Podcast player. These cases are rare, but might happen. To overcome this you can add a filter to tell Complianz to skip an inline script. All you need is the ID of the inline script. In the case of the blocked Podcast Player script it looked like this:
