Consent String Decoder: FAQ
What is this site?
With the introduction of the GDPR and CCPA, marketers and advertisers have widely adopted IAB standards to communicate user consent and permission preferences. This is a simple site intended to make it easier to troubleshoot and debug consent strings.
How do you parse consent strings?
Depends on which standard!
- For TCFv1 strings, the consent-string library from the IAB is used.
- For TCFv2 strings, the tc-string-parse library from AudienceProject is used.
- For US Privacy Strings (CCPA), a custom implementation is used.
Does the IAB run this site? Do they support it?
Nope! Hopefully lowering the bar to understand consent signals is a net positive for the IAB, but there is no formal relationship.
