GDPR Support with Magento

The GDPR Legislation comes into effect from 25 May 2018

This WIKI article assumes:

  • You have some basic understanding of setting up a Google Tag Manager account
  • You have purchased the GDPR Website Documentation Package from our legal partner
  • You have installed our GDPR extension for Magento 1


You can also download the installation & configuration guide via the Magento Marketplace page here

Google Tag Manager

For those whom have not had much experience with Google Tag Manager (GTM) then this process may seem more complex, but rest assured the requirements here will simplify your need to become GDPR compliant, where the 'Express Consent' cookie directive is required.

As an E-Commerce agency we adopted GTM early and have most of our supplementary site add-ons installed via GTM.

Here are some of the typical services we use which will fire 3rd Party Cookies (or beacons)

  • Google Analytics
  • Google Adwords Remarketing
  • Google Optimise
  • HotJar
  • LiveChatInc
  • Zendesk Chat
  • Facebook Pixel Tracking

All of the above are considered non-essential cookies and therefore you must ensure that such services are lifted out of your Magento code-base and into a GTM container. Our extension will then simply install the GTM container on the page ONLY when 'Express Consent' has been granted.
