    That's great, very helpful indeed.  Would you add some information about what a "strict","implied", and "bulk" opt-in is?

    I was assuming that a strict optin includes the consent to all categories, however in my stats the number of strict optins is higher than the optins to the separate categories pref/mark/stat.

    Also it would be good to know at which time the daily accumulated data is processed . In other words at what time of day should i schedule the import of yesterday's data?

    Thanks,

    Ulrich

    Hi Ulrich Babiak,

    Thank you for your feedback. It's easy for us to forget that certain terms probably don't make sense to most of our users.

    "strict" and "implied" refer to consent methods, not whether full or partial consent was given.

    I've tried to explain these concepts by adding annotations, do let me know if it's still unclear though.

    Thanks for the clarification. OK, so there is no explicit count of users that have consented to all three categories pref/stat/mark.

    One last thing, important for the interpretation of the stats - these counters are counting only users who interact with the banner, not users that have given their consent some time earlier and thus are not seeing the banner - right?

    This question had been asked a while ago here:

    Since the  data API is not documented, I wonder  if I hand out the API key to a contractor (for data analysis)  , would they be able to change settings ? Or is the API just enabled for data retrieval / read access?

    Hi Ulrich Babiak,

    The API is only for retrieving data. You can't edit or delete data with it.

    The consent logs contain no personal information, so in that regard you can safely hand out the API key to a partner, but we generally don't recommend sharing your personal API key or making it publicly available.
