Google Consent Mode V2 for TCF

Google’s Consent Mode is a tool within Google Tag Manager that allows websites to adjust how tags behave based on user consent for tracking. It helps manage and control the behavior of tags, such as Google Analytics and Google Ads, depending on whether the user has provided consent for data collection and processing. 

For detailed information and guidance on Google Consent Mode, refer to the official Google support documentation: Google Consent Mode – Official Documentation 

Changes in Google Consent Mode v2 

In Consent Mode v2, Google introduced two additional consent types to offer users more granular control over their data sharing preferences: 

  • ad_user_data: This consent type pertains to user consent specifically for Google’s advertising purposes. When a user actively agrees, typically through interaction with a consent banner, to share their data with Google for advertising purposes, the ad_user_data consent is set to ‘granted.’ 
  • ad_personalization: This consent type focuses on whether user data can be utilized for personalized advertising, such as remarketing or targeted ads. It requires explicit user agreement, typically through a consent banner interaction, to share their data with Google for ad personalization. 

These additional consent types provide users with clearer choices and control over data sharing for advertising purposes, aligning with evolving privacy regulations and user expectations.
