Enabled Google Consent Mode V2 Updates (Pandectes)

This guide is specific to Pandectes with an enabled GCM integration

Overview

If your Google Consent Mode is enabled within Pandectes you'll see the following message on the Pandectes integration settings.

Although this may have been functioning as expected, this is not the recommended setup. Currently, we are not seeing what is expected behavior for V2 using this setup. We recommend that you adjust your setup to our recommended setup when using Pandectes and Elevar together by following these next steps.


Set You Defaults Through Google Tag Manager (GTM)

You'll update your setup to assign your defaults in GTM

Download Pandectes:

  • Begin your Elevar homepage and use the left-hand menu to click on the "Pre-Built Tags" tab.
    • Use the search function to locate the Pandectes Tag.
    • Locate and click on the "Download Container" button.
      • (See Figure 1)
    • Once you download the pre-built container, import the tags in Google Tag Manager. How do I do this?

Assign Default Consent Status:

  • In your Pre-Built Consent Tags, there is a section where you can choose to allow certain cookies to fire before the shopper grants or denies consent.
  • Please select your desired default consent status before the user visitor provides a consent status. [What do these consent types mean?]
    • (See Figure 2)

Typically, the default statuses will vary by your region and legal requirements if you have opt-in or opt-out requirements. Elevar does not offer legal advice regarding GDPR or any consent compliance. Please consult your legal team if unsure.
