User Privacy

The Tapdaq SDK will forward these settings to each network which is initialised each time they are set (either at initialisation or mid session).

These values should be set when they are known, whether they are True or False, if left in their default Unknown state then each network will handle the user in their own way, therefore it is best to provide as much data as possible.

AdMob Targeting

As of Tapdaq SDK 7.0.0, an AdMob content rating will be forwarded for every ad request to AdMob, to do this, set the value in the config either before Tapdaq has initialised or after like so:

//After Tapdaq initialises
AdManager.SetAdMobContentRating("MA"); //G PG T MA
AdManager.SetAgeRestrictedUserStatus(TDStatus.TRUE); //COPPA/GDPR flag

The tag_for_under_age_of_consent flag will be sent to AdMob if the user is subject to GDPR and AgeRestrictedUser is set. The ChildDirectedTreatment COPPA flag will be sent if user is not known to be subject to GDPR and AgeRestrictedUser is set. Read more about AdMob Targeting here.

Age Restriction

We will pass the AgeRestrictedUser flag to the following networks:

  • AdColony:
    • Passed when UserSubjectToGDPR is FALSE and AgeRestrictedUser is not UNKNOWN
  • AdMob:
    • Passed when user is not subject to GDPR
  • AppLovin:
    • Android: passed when UserSubjectToGDPR is not UNKNOWN
    • iOS: always passed
  • Facebook Audience Network:
    • passed when UserSubjectToGDPR is FALSE and AgeRestrictedUser is not UNKNOWN
  • Pangle:
    • Android: passed when UserSubjectToGDPR is not UNKNOWN and AgeRestrictedUser is not UNKNOWN
    • iOS: passed when UserSubjectToGDPR is not UNKNOWN
  • Tapjoy:
    • Always passed

The AgeRestrictedUser flag can be used to help you comply with COPPA and other applicable age restrictions.

Set/change values

AdManager.SetAgeRestrictedUserStatus (TDStatus.TRUE);


For users within California affected by California Consumer Privacy Act

When UserSubjectToUSPrivacy & USPrivacy states are both true networks will be forwarded a doNotSell flag.

Set/change values


IAB String

For AdColony & Tapjoy the adapter will send an IAB String in the following scenarios:

if UserSubjectToUSPrivacy == TRUE AND DoNotSell == TRUE
  then "1NYN"
if UserSubjectToUSPrivacy == TRUE AND DoNotSell == FALSE
  then "1NNN"
else "1---"

Flags are forwarded for the following networks: AdColony, AdMob, Chartboost, Facebook Audience Network, IronSource, Tapjoy & Vungle.

Facebook Audience Network Tracking

As of Tapdaq 7.8.1 (FAN 6.2.0), for iOS 14+ Facebook Audience Network require permission to serve personalized ads, to do this set the Advertiser Tracking flag to TRUE.

See Facebook Audience Network documentation for further details

TDStatus status = AdManager.GetAdvertiserTrackingEnabled();


For users within the EU.

Set/change values

Consent can be updated mid session as well as at initialisation, it can be set and unset.

AdManager.SetUserSubjectToGdprStatus (TDStatus.TRUE);
AdManager.SetConsentStatus (TDStatus.TRUE);


Developers may set a UserId within Tapdaq, this will be used for Server-side Rewards and can optionally be forwarded to other networks. It can be changed at any point during a session.

AdManager.SetUserId("Unity UserId");

ForwardUserId must be set to true before setting the UserId during a session in order to pass the UserId to networks
