Support » Plugin: GDPR Cookie Compliance » Woocommerce Google Analytics Integration Cookies

    Hi,
    We are using GA and GTM and I would like to start using the Woocommerce integration for GA E-commerce as well.
    https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/google-analytics-integration/
    We have already configured the 3rd party cookies with both codes (for GTM and GA in header and body) and it works perfectly.
    I would like to know if by using Woocommerce plugin, the Cookies will still be blocked if the user don’t allow them. I’m not sure what the plugin does in the backend, if they add code somewhere else than the header or body or if they rely on the overall code. I’d like to know it before installing the plugin as in Germany you cannot have problems with GDPR 🙂

    thanks!
    Luciana

    Hi @nlp2016,

    Thanks for your comments.

    Our plugin could manage the scripts defined in the plugin settings. The cookies are created by these scripts. The WooCommerce cookies should be marked as “Strictly Necessary” cookies, and you can switch this cookie category to “Always enabled (user cannot disable it but can see the content)” value. By this, the cookies created by WooCommerce (this is a plugin, cookies created by WC can’t be blocked as your shop could stop working) are marked as “Strictly Necessary”.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi, sorry I don’t think this is exactly what I asked.
    I don’t want to block Woocommerce plugin Cookies, but the extra plug in that connects Woocommerce data with Google Analytics.
    That’s not strictly necessary as Woocommerce doesn’t need the integration with Google Analytics for working. It’s just a plugin to enable the use of Google Analytics Ecommerce together with Woocommerce.
    So what I need to understand is that GDPR compliance can block the cookies that are just for the integration.
    But I guess I need to wait for the answer from Woocomerce Google Analytics Integration plugin as they must know better how their plugin works.

    thanks anyway for the answer.

    Hi @nlp2016,

    Sorry for the confusion here.

    You can add the following code snippet to your functions.php, and using a hook the WooCommerce Google Analytics Integration (woocommerce_ga_disable_tracking) we can prevent the tracking if the Third-Party cookies are not accepted.

    add_filter('woocommerce_ga_disable_tracking', 'gdpr_ga_integration_wc', 20);
    function gdpr_ga_integration_wc( $disable_ga_wc ) {
      if ( function_exists( 'gdpr_cookie_is_accepted' ) ) :
        if ( ! gdpr_cookie_is_accepted( 'thirdparty' ) ) :
        	$disable_ga_wc = true;
        endif;
      endif;
      return $disable_ga_wc;
    }
    add_action( 'gdpr_force_reload', '__return_true' );

    Hope this helps

    thanks!
    I guess this needs to be pasted in the 3rd party cookies section in the header script?

    No, should be added to your functions.php (in Theme editor) or please speak to your developer to help to implement this code snippet.
    In our GDPR settings (3rd party head), you can add only JavaScript snippets.

    I just updated the snippet, please use the latest from above.

    Thanks
