Consent is mandatory for all triggering of trackers
Impact on Analytics
Without consent, you cannot measure analytics performance (sessions / sales)
You cannot share data with your MarTech ecosystem
Important: server-side tracking is not exempt from consent collection.
Impact on your media performance
Without consent, you cannot run remarketing audiences.
You cannot track conversions (lower in-platform performance, lower data points for AI optimization).
If you are a site publisher, you won't be able to maximize your advertising revenue.
Impact on user experience
Failure to respect user choice or complicated access to user data can lead to loss of trust (e.g., user refuses tracking but gets re-targeted anyway).
A poor consent management system can also cause users to leave a website, thinking they've landed on the wrong site.
