Metric details: Vendors triggered prior to consent

The Vendors triggered prior to consent compliance metric covers the number of vendors that we have observed on the selected properties ahead of a user making a choice on the CMP. The metric details view enables your organization to view data visualizations for the compliance metric against your benchmarks and drill down into scanning results. 

Navigate to a detailed view for a specific compliance metric by applying your filters to your dashboard and selecting a compliance metric from the Compliance Metrics table.


  Note: You can continue to edit filters to adjust properties, regions, periodization, and benchmark properties while viewing the details for a particular metric.


The overview section of the metric details page is comprised of 3 graphs that allow you to compare, based on your filters, your relative score and average count for the metric compared to your benchmark property.  


  • Average count: the average number of vendors per scan that fulfilled the criteria of the metric (e.g. non disclosed, triggered before consent, etc...)
  • Relative score: a percentile ranking that compares selected properties against your benchmark properties for this particular compliance metric.
