The Global Privacy Control (GPC) is an important feature implemented in Secure Privacy that enhances privacy protection for website visitors. This support article aims to provide you with an overview of how the GPC feature works and its benefits for both website owners and visitors.

What is Global Privacy Control?

The Global Privacy Control is a privacy standard that enables website visitors to exercise their rights regarding the collection and usage of their personal information. It allows users to signal their preference for data privacy by automatically sending a GPC signal through their browser.

How Does Secure Privacy Implement the GPC Feature?

Secure Privacy has integrated the GPC feature into its cookie banner solution, ensuring that website owners can respect the privacy preferences of their visitors. When a visitor's browser supports sending the GPC signal, Secure Privacy's cookie banner will detect and act on this signal to automatically limit the placement of cookies to essential ones only.

Benefits of the Global Privacy Control Feature:

- Enhanced Privacy Protection: By respecting the GPC signal, website owners using Secure Privacy demonstrate their commitment to protecting visitors' privacy rights and complying with privacy regulations.

- User-Friendly Experience: Visitors who have enabled the GPC feature in their browsers can enjoy a seamless browsing experience with reduced tracking and personalized data collection.

- Compliance with Privacy Regulations: The GPC feature helps website owners align with privacy laws and regulations that require obtaining explicit consent for cookie placement, ensuring compliance and minimizing the risk of non-compliance penalties.

- Simplified Cookie Management: With the GPC feature, website owners can streamline their cookie management process by automatically limiting the placement of non-essential cookies, reducing the need for manual intervention.
