N.Rich Website Tag fundamentals

 

Introduction

N.Rich Website Tags are essential components of gathering the essential account level buyer journey data that is used for intent data, analytics, advertising personalization, and for synchronizing cookies with Marketing Automation and CRM systems.

N.Rich provides two Tags; Cookieless and Standard. The Cookieless Tag does not set cookies and only uses other available data points, such as IP addresses and pre-existing cookies. The Cookieless Tag must be used when the visitor has not provided consent for cookies. The Standard Tag sets cookies and enables more granular, cookie-based analytics, and advertising personalization. The Standard tag may only be used after the user has provided informed and explicit consent.

Expiration time

N.Rich cookies have an expiration date of 540 days. The expiration is refreshed every time the N.Rich Standard Tag is loaded for a specific cookie.

Where N.Rich tags are used

N.Rich tags are used on client websites and through N.Rich programmatic advertising distribution. The client websites account for less than 10% of the overall data generated by N.Rich tags.

Installation

N.Rich Website Tag is a JavaScript code snippet that you place in the footer of your site, just above the </body> tag. The code snippet has been specially designed to load asynchronously and independently, so it will never block page load. We recommend installing N.Rich Website Tag using a tag manager, like Google Tag Manager or Adobe Tag Manager and it is strongly recommended to set the priority of the Tags as high as possible and set its sequence to loading first or as early as possible. Cookieless and Standard Tags must not be loaded during the same page load. A typical method of setting up both tags on common tag managers is to use the “cookie-consent” cookie as the rule, i.e. if cookie-consent doesn’t exist, use the Cookieless Tag and if cookie-consent equals 1, use the Standard Tag.

Data Privacy 

N.Rich tags are fully EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) compliant. N.Rich uses consent as the primary basis of creating cookies and personalizing advertising. The consents are received through Internet Advertising Boureau’s IAB Transparency and Consent Framework (TCF) and N.Rich customer websites. N.Rich is listed on IAB’s vendor list with the ID 20 (N Technologies Inc) and N Technologies is also a signatory of IAB CCPA Compliance Framework.

Audiences generated through N.Rich Tags are used solely for analytics and targeting purposes. However, due to the nature of programmatic buying infrastructure, in order to be able to take advantage of the cookies for targeting of advertising, the cookie ids of the visitors will be distributed to various N.Rich advertising technology partners within the programmatic buying ecosystem. Cookies will never be associated with any Personally Identifiable Information such as name, address, or email address or any other information that is not otherwise publicly available.

When creating or updating our cookie on the end users browser N.Rich also creates an additional informational cookie that contains a link to N.Rich Privacy Notice and Opt-Out ensuring that they are always available for the end-user, regardless of the circumstances. Additionally, N.Rich respects browsers' "Do Not Track" (DNT) standard (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_Not_Track).

Where does N.Rich store data

N.Rich primary data centers are in France and Germany (Europe). Additionally to these primary data centers, N.Rich also has data centers in the United States (Americas) and Singapore (Asia) that enable regional distribution of advertising.

As a part of a valid cookie consent, it is highly recommended that the website owner informs the end-user about how N.Rich processes personal data. On the client websites, the cookie-consent banner should include a link to the website cookie consent or privacy notice. In order to for the cookie consent to be valid, either of these documents must include links to N.Rich’s Privacy Notice (https://n.rich/privacy-notice) and opt-out (https://n.rich/optout). Here are some examples of how to phrase this notice;
