Data Privacy Consent (GDPR)Last Updated: May 17, 2018
For GDPR compliance, end-users may need to give consent for Drift to save their information. In this article, we'll cover how to create consent forms for your customers and what it'll look like.
By May 25, we will enable API access to set the consent fields for end users.
Here's how to create a consent form
Start by going to Settings > Data Privacy. Here's what you'll see and what each section means.
If we click Add New Form, this is where we'll land:
You can also customize messaging after the user opts in/out.
The View opt-in button will be a button that displays if a user opts out. It gives them a second chance to opt in.

How do I know which customers have given consent?
Navigate to Settings > Data Privacy and view the Consent API section.
Here you’ll find the Drift Attribute associated with consent.
Whenever a customer consents via Chat or Email, we’ll set this attribute to true on their contact record. Drift uses this attribute to determine whether returning customers should be prompted for consent. If you change the Drift Attribute to which consent is associated, customers who previously consented may be prompted for consent again unless this attribute is true on their contact record.
You may track which customers have consented by creating a Dynamic Segment based on the Drift Attribute associated with consent.
