When using Site Kit, site owners are responsible for managing notice and consent requirements – including GDPR requirements – as described in Google’s Terms of Service.
By default, Site Kit does anonymize IP addresses upon activation of the Google Analytics module. This setting can be turned off in Site Kit > Settings > Analytics > Anonymize IP addresses.
There are a number of third-party plugins that allow you to block Google Analytics, Tag Manager, or AdSense from capturing data until a visitor to the site consents. Some of these work natively with Site Kit by providing plugin-specific configurations. Some of the more popular plugins include:
