To operate properly, the iubenda Privacy Controls and Cookie Solution counts the number of pageviews generated by the website. This is also done to provide the user with useful information regarding the collection of the consent, such as the percentage of consent on the total visits, the manner in which the consent was collected and so on.
The count of the pageviews is carried on by counting the number of executions of the Privacy Controls and Cookie Solution script. Whenever the Privacy Controls and Cookie Solution code runs, our software records a pageview.
The number of pageviews calculated by our software may differ from those calculated using other statistical software such as Google Analytics, ShinyStat or Matomo/Piwik. This difference is due to the fact that the Privacy Controls and Cookie Solution automatically excludes from the counting, the pageviews generated by bots.
Once the consent has been collected, the banner will disappear and the scripts/cookies that were subjected to the prior consent are immediately released. This is possible because the Privacy Controls and Cookie Solution script continues working behind the scenes, recognizing the users who have already given their consent.
For this reason the pageview is not recorded only at the first visit of each user, but also during all subsequent visits. The Privacy Controls and Cookie Solution script, in fact, runs continuously – even if the banner is not displayed and the blocking of scripts not executed.
