In this article, we’ll aim to outline how using Attributer on your website impacts your organization’s compliance with regulations like GDPR.
It should be noted that this is not legal advice and we are not legal experts. This is merely our advice based on our own interpretation of the law and you should seek your own legal advice.
How does using Attributer impact my GDPR compliance?
GDPR is a data privacy and security law that outlines how organizations can process and store your personal data. It requires organizations to do things like only collect personal data where absolutely necessary, only store it for certain periods of time, store it securely, notify you if there has been a data breach, etc.
Attributer does not collect or store any personal data about your website visitors, so therefore using Attributer should not impact your organization’s compliance with GDPR.
When you place the Attributer code on your website, it simply looks at where a visitor came from, stores the data in a cookie in the visitor’s browser, and then when they complete a form on your website it writes the attribute data into hidden fields on the form where it is then capture dby your chosen form tool.
At no point in time does any information about your visitors (personally identifiable information or otherwise) get sent to, processed or stored by us.
How does using Attributer impact my CCPA compliance?
Similar to GDPR, CCPA is a data privacy and security law that outlines how organizations can process and store your personal data.
Fortunately though, the CCPA does not require that a business obtain user consent for collecting and processing their personal information. It’s only if you collect and sell the personal information of users to third parties that you need to give them the ability to opt-out of that happening.
Therefore, the use fo Attributer on your website does not impact your organization’s compliance with CCPA and does not mean you need to add a cookie banner to your website.
