How to use the data layer set by our app?

Integrating a consent management tool with your website involves understanding how the data layer works, especially when it comes to tracking user consent. Our app sets up a data layer that plays a crucial role in this process.

How the Data Layer Works:

Event Tracking:
- Upon enabling the consent bar, our app creates a consent_status event within the dataLayer object of your store.
- This event tracks real-time consent status across different cookie categories.

Understanding Consent Status:
- The data layer reflects the consent given by customers for various cookie groups.
- For example, if a customer opts-in for all cookie categories, the data layer would show:
analytics: true
     functionality: true
     marketing: true
     necessary: true

Accessing the Data Layer:
- To view this data, navigate to your store, open the Inspector tools > Console, and type dataLayer.

Integration with Google Tag Manager:
- Leverage the data layer in Google Tag Manager to trigger specific events based on user consent.

- Non-EU & Brazil Browsing:
- If the consent bar is configured for EU & Brazil visitors only, and someone browses from outside these regions, the consent_status event will show non_gdpr. This indicates the visitor is from a non-EU or non-Brazil region.

Understanding and utilizing the data layer effectively ensures compliance and allows for tailored marketing strategies based on user consent.
