How does HubSpot track website visitor activity?
Go to Reports Settings
- Do not request consent for using cookies - Choose this option if your company does not have a presence in Europe. This option will let you collect visit history on your website visitors without asking the user for explicit permission. Please note that if the visitor is using a web browser that has cookies disabled, or if they are using a do not track feature on their browser, HubSpot will not be able to collect visit history for them.
- Request consent for using cookies - Choose this option if your company has a presence in Europe and you need to abide by the EU cookie laws. This option will display a banner on your website the first time someone visits your site. It will prompt the visitor to consent to the placement of cookies on their computer. Once they consent, you will be able to gather visit history on that visitor.
To preview what your specific banner will look like on your external website, install the HubSpot tracking code on your external web pages and set the privacy mode to Test Mode.
After you've made all your option changes here, make sure you click the Save button to successfully implement your changes for testing.
Once your options are saved, you can preview it by visiting a page that has your HubSpot tracking code installed and appending the URL with the query parameter ?_hsPrivacyTest
This is an example of what this banner will look like:
Turn on Production Mode
Once you're ready to publish your message, change the option to Production Mode and Save your changes again.
