How to be GDPR Compliant using Javascript Code Snippets/Scripts

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) affects every company that does business with an EU citizen. In order to comply with GDPR, you are able to classify the scripts (install/embed) in the “Includes” section (either for logged-in or logged-out users) based on the cookie preferences of the users who visit your school.

We are introducing two pseudo-attributes:

1. type: this is the script type that would be used. The following values can be used:

a. text/javascript (if your school does not need to be GDPR compliant)

b. text/plain (if your school needs to be GDPR compliant)

Note: text/javascript is the default in case the attribute is not added in the <script> tag.

2. data-accept-cookie: this is the privacy category to which the script belongs (let us say once again that this can only be used if the type of the script is text/plain)

The acceptable values are:

a. analytics

b. marketing

c. functional

Example: In order to add your code snippet, navigate to Website→ Design →  Edit School Site →  Custom Code. If your school is not going to be GDPR-compliant, then your code snippet could be like this: <script type="text/javascript">.

In the opposite case (GDPR-compliant school), you have to add to your script both properties type="text/plain" and data-accept-cookie="YYY".

If you want to add an "analytics" or a "functional" code snippet, you just replace the "marketing" value with "analytics" or "functional" respectively. 

Note: For the specific example, the code will be executed if the users have accepted the Marketing Cookies.
