Privacy JavaScript Library

The Magento Privacy JavaScript Library is a set of tools to help create a process for accessing and deleting private data collected by Magento.

Magento’s data tracking services can store private information applicable to privacy regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). This library provides a set of functions for creating privacy-data requests and gathering their responses. Use this library to retrieve and remove the data stored in the browser by Magento’s data tracking services.

If Cookie Restriction Mode is enabled, Magento does not collect behavioral data until the shopper consents. If Cookie Restriction Mode is disabled, Magento collects behavioral data by default.

Installation

The Magento Privacy JavaScript Library is available at the following CDN location: commerce.adobe.net/magentoprivacy.js

After you have the file, you will need to add it to a custom module or theme installed in your Magento instance. Follow the instructions described in the Use custom JavaScript topic to accomplish this task.
