Working with Legal Bases

The consentmanager.net CMP allows you to set the legal basis per vendor and purpose. Depending on the setting, the behavior of the CMP will be different.

 

When assigning a legal basis to a vendor or purpose, you do not only change the text that is displayed in the consent layer but also the behaviour how the system will activate/deactivate the purpose or vendor. The following scenarios exist:

  1. Opt-In
    Displays a toggle that is not preselected (empty checkbox). The visitor can enable this toggle via click on accept all or via the custom settings page.
  2. Opt-out
    Display a toggle that is preselected (checked checkbox). The visitor can disable the toggle via click on reject all or via the custom settings page. A click on "Save" will not automatically disable the toggle.
  3. Always on
    Display a toggle that is preselected (checked checkbox) and cannot be disabled. The visitor cannot disable the toggle.
  4. Explicit Opt-in
    Displays a button that is disabled by default. The system will only activate vendors if the vendor is specifically accepted. A click on "Accept all" button, will not accept this vendor (same for a group button or enabling a purpose). A visitor needs to explicitly go into the custom settings page and click on the accept button next to the vendor.
  5. Explicit Opt-out
    Display a toggle that is preselected (checked checkbox). The visitor can disable the toggle only via the custom settings page. A click on "Reject all" or "Save" will not automatically disable the toggle.
  6. Policy Opt-out
    The vendor or purpose is hidden by default but treated as preselected (see Explcit Opt-out). The vendor is only visible when the visitor accesses the consent layer via the privacy policy integration.

Please note: When using the IAB TCF v1 or v2, only default, consent and legitimate interests are supported in the signals sent to vendors.

If a purpose and a vendor are set to a legal basis other than the default legal basis, the setting of the vendor takes precedence:

The default setting is, that the CMP will always display only one toggle for each vendor and each purpose. Enabling or disabling a toggle will always enable/disable consent AND legitimate interest for this vendor or purpose. If you wish to offer two separate choices, you can do so under Menu > CMPs > Edit > Legal Settings > Legal Bases:

Once enabled, the CMP will show two toggles for each vendor/purpose when you click on the questionmark icon.
