Google Tag Manager and Automatic Cookie Blocking Using CookieYes
Published on .
What is Google Tag Manager?
Tags are fired or activated by triggers. Triggers can be anything from a page view, click, payment, to form submission. That means they decide when the tags should be fired. You can edit and change the tags as required. It helps you track your page views, clicks, user data, and user behavior on your site. Also, its two-factor authentication ensures security.
This article discusses how CookieYes’ automatic blocking of third-party cookies helps in making your use of Google Tag Manager GDPR and ePrivacy Directive (the EU Cookie Law) compliant.

CookieYes Automatic Cookie Blocking
Using Google Tag Manager will not make your website comply with the data privacy laws. As already discussed, you need to make sure it meets the requirements of these laws. You still need to manage the cookie consent on your website.
CookieYes helps your website in complying by providing cookie consent solutions. You can fully customize the cookie consent banner per the look and feel of your website. It also lets you choose between different consent types.
An attractive feature of CookieYes is that it automatically blocks third-party cookies unless the users give their consent. The tags are not triggered before receiving an active consent from users. That is, you can control the cookies set by third parties. All you have to do is create a free account!
Here is a setup guide that explains the installation process.
