In order to comply with certain regional regulations, many organizations offer a button on their GDPR first layer message that enables end-users to reject all purposes whose legal basis is user consent while allowing purposes whose legal basis is legitimate interest.

At Sourcepoint, this specific configuration is called continuing without agreeing. In this article, we will cover how to implement the continuing without agreeing setup in your GDPR TCF and GDPR Standard messages. 

Add continue without agreeing button to first layer message

Navigate to an existing GDPR TCF or GDPR Standard first layer message builder and click + in the toolbar pane.

Select the Button component from the subsequent modal to add a new button to your first layer message.

Select the newly added button and use the Settings panel to style the button as needed.

With the button selected, expand the Action accordion and select Save & Exit from the provided dropdown menu.

The Save & Exit action assigned to your button on the GDPR first layer message will, when selected by an end-user, reject all purposes whose legal basis is user consent while allowing purposes whose legal basis is legitimate interest.

  Note: As a reminder, the Save & Exit choice option for a button in a GDPR first layer message behaves differently than when used in a GDPR privacy manager. When the choice option is used in a GDPR privacy manager, it will save any end-user selections and exit the privacy manager

Save your first layer message and (re)launch your GDPR TCF or GDPR Standard campaign.

Test continue without agreeing end-user consent flow

Test the end-user consent flow by navigating to your property and selecting your continue without agreeing button in your first layer message when it is displayed.

Navigate to Sourcepoint's API end-point to retrieve an end-user's consent status for either GDPR TCF or GDPR Standard and input the property's siteId and consentUUID in the provided fields. Click Try It to run the request.

GDPR TCF: GET end-user consent status

GDPR Standard: GET end-user consent status

Review the response. Vendors who have legitimate interest configured for at least one purpose will populate in the legIntVendors array and purposes who have legitimate interest configured as legal basis will appear in the legIntCategories array.

  Note: Additionally, confirm that the vendors and categories arrays are empty. These arrays detail the vendors and purposes have been consented to by the end-user, respectively.
