Pass user consent from your website’s cookie banner into an embedded survey
To ensure your ability to comply with your local or international regulations, Segmanta offers the ability to pass user consent fields from your website’s cookie consent banner into Segmanta surveys embedded in your website. Website visitors who indicate their privacy settings on your website’s cookie consent banner can have these preferences reflected in any Segmanta website survey. This would also include any firing or suppressing third party pixels or tags you’ve integrated into your surveys, such as Facebook events, Google Analytics, etc.
To pass consent from your website's cookie banner to your embedded survey, first make sure that the cookie consent banner for your survey is toggled on:
Privacy settings should then be passed as parameters into your Segmanta survey, in one of two ways:
- For surveys that are embedded as URLs on your website, the privacy settings should be passed using URL parameters in the survey link.
- For surveys that are directly embedded on your website, the privacy settings should be set up as URL parameters on an embedded survey.
Segmanta supports passing user consent URL parameters from the following cookie categorizations: Functional, Performance, and Marketing. Segmanta also supports passing a ‘soft consent’ or implied consent parameter for non-EU website visitors, which enables all default cookies unless indicated otherwise by the visitor in your website’s cookie banner.
Note: Strictly necessary or ‘essential’ cookies cannot be disabled and will always be included in each survey.
Cookie categorization parameters:
Implied consent parameters (NON EU):
Soft consent: '_scc'
The values for each param should be indicated as 0 or 1: 0 for decline or 1 for accept.
For surveys that are embedded as URLs on your website, the parameters with their corresponding values should be added to the URL.
For example, the following parameters should be added to the URL of the survey link surveys.segmanta.com/12adbc

For surveys that are directly embedded on your website, the parameters with their corresponding values should be added to the SEGMANTA__USER_METADATA <script> tag.
