The Privacy tab for properties can be found by clicking the Edit icon next to the relevant property that you want to edit in the Property Settings dashboard, which can be found by going to Settings > Properties from the left hand menu, before clicking Privacy where you can configure a number of privacy settings.
This option, ticked by default, will determine whether users are tracked by a Decibel cookie or not. If this is disabled, Decibel will not automatically be able to detect return visits and stitch together sessions for the same visitor.
IP Address Handling
Provides a drop down menu that allows you to specify how Decibel will handle IP addresses for tracked visitors. This provides the following options:
- Store: The IP address will be stored along with the session details and can be used to search for individual sessions.
- Anonymize: The IP address will be anonymized after detecting the country from which the session occurred.
- Drop: After accepting the connection from the visitor's device, the IP address will be dropped. Selecting this setting will mean that country detection will not be possible.
