The General Data Protection Regulation requires you to scope your user's consent. A user is within the GDPR scope for your app when one more of the following apply:
- The user is currently located in the EU
- The user has registered with the app as an EU resident
- The app is specifically targeted to EU users
User Consent Not Passed
If you do not pass the user’s consent to the FairBid SDK, only contextual ads will be shown to that user and your revenue might be negatively affected.
We recommend that the first time you gather a user’s consent, you pass it onto the FairBid SDK before initializing it. The SDK will then take the user’s consent into consideration when initializing. In the following sessions for that user, you will only need to call the API in the event that the user updates his or her consent (the SDK caches the consent).
Once you have collected the user’s consent, you can pass it to the SDK using the following API:
User Consent Given
UserInfo.setGdprConsent(true, context); // true or YES if you have the user’s consent
User Consent NOT Given
UserInfo.setGdprConsent(false, context); // false or NO if you do NOT have the user’s consent",
[Optional] Additional User Consent String
String consentString = "BOEFEAyOEFEAyAHABDENAI4AAAB9vABAASA"; UserInfo.setGdprConsentString(consentString, this);
The following code clears both the user consent flag and the consent string
