Create a source

What is a source?

Before creating a Notice, you'll need to register where your notice is going to be deployed. We call it a Source. It can be a website or a mobile app.

You need to create a source for each website or mobile app on which you want to apply your notice.

If you have a website AND a mobile App, you need to create a source and a notice for your website, and an other one for your App.

Create a source for your website or your Mobile App

Go to the Sources item on the left menu.

Click on ADD SOURCE

  • Type: Website or Mobile App

  • Target URL: if you have chosen the “Website” type, enter the URL of your website. Can be either HTTP or HTTPS. If you have a mobile App, read the following point.

  • Bundle ID: if you have chosen the “Mobile App” type, enter the bundle ID.

  • Maximum number of pages to crawl: number of pages scanned to identify your specifics vendors (in addition to those of the IAB). If 1, the homepage will be the only scanned page.

  • Purposes: you can add your own purposes, created in the "Purposes" section.

  • Mobil geoloc Advertising Banner: link your advertising geoloc purpose here

  • Mobil geoloc Market Banner: link your marketing geoloc purpose here

  • Scope: this list shows all the other sources you have created in your account. If you select "Global", then the consent collected on this source will be propagated to all the sources that belong to the same account. If you want to control which sources the consent will be propagated to, just select the source you want in the list. If you leave unchecked, there will be no propagation and the consent will be granted ONLY for the current source.

  • Logos: if you have chosen the "Website" type, upload the logo that will be used by default for the notice and banner. (PNG or JPEG supported). If you have chosen the “Mobile App” type, the icons must be uploaded in the notice creation form.

The logo fields are used only for websites. If you have chosen the “Mobile App” type, the icons must be uploaded in the notice creation form

SOURCES are unique across all the platform. Meaning that you can't create twice an URL. If you are the valid owner of an URL and that the system tells you that there is already a source named like this, just warn us using your dedicated Slack Channel or drop an email to [email protected]

Confirm by clicking on Save.

Your source now appears in the board:

You can EDIT your source at any time. Just go back to SOURCES menu and click on the desiderated line. The popup will appear and you can update your source information.

  • ID: The unique ID of the source.

  • Logo: A preview of the 1st Logo uploaded while creating or updating the Source.

  • Creation: Time elapsed since the creation of the notice.

  • Last Update: Time elapsed since the last update of the notice.

  • Status: For now, 3 status are declared and it depends of the result of our crawling system. When a source is created, our Privacy Crawler generate an archive of the website that is stored in our Plateform. This is useful to secure build better proof of the consent LifeCycle. In a next feature Privacy Guard, we will also use this crawler in order to scan your properties for any GDPR or ePrivacy breaches.

    Here are the 3 status:

    ✔ Active: The source has been successfully crawled.

    ✖ Canceled: An error occurred (We get an HTTP code 4XX or 5XX during the crawl).

    🕔 Pending: The source has not been crawled yet (refresh the page to get the active (or canceled) statut).
