Unity GDPR Consent Plugin

Forum Thread: https://forum.unity.com/threads/simple-gdpr-consent-open-source.723866/

This plugin helps you present a GDPR consent dialog to the users. Please note that you are responsible from forwarding the consent data to your SDKs.

How To

Simply import SimpleGDPR.unitypackage to your project and you are good to go!

SimpleGDPR class has the following functions and properties:

ConsentState GetConsentState( string identifier ): returns Yes, if user has given consent for the identifier event to collect their data (e.g. ads personalization, analytics data collection); No, if user has disallowed this data collection and Unknown, if the permission hasn’t been asked yet

void ShowDialog( IGDPRDialog dialog, DialogClosedDelegate onDialogClosed = null ): presents the dialog to the user. When the dialog is closed, onDialogClosed is invoked (DialogClosedDelegate takes no parameters). See the Dialogs section below for more info about the dialogs

IEnumerator WaitForDialog( IGDPRDialog dialog ): coroutine equivalent of ShowDialog

void OpenURL( string url ): opens the specified url in the web browser. On WebGL, the url is opened in a new tab

bool IsDialogVisible: returns true if a dialog is currently visible

bool IsTermsOfServiceAccepted: returns true if user has accepted the Terms of Service and/or the Privacy Policy

bool IsGDPRApplicable: returns true, if user is located in the EEA or the request location is unknown. Returns false, if user is not located in the EEA. This value is determined by sending a request to http://adservice.google.com/getconfig/pubvendors, so an active internet connection is required (on Android, set Internet Access to Require in Player Settings)

NOTE: To comply with GDPR, users must be allowed to change the consents they’ve provided at any time. So, make sure that users can access the consent dialog from e.g. the settings menu.


There are two types of dialogs (IGDPRDialog). After creating a dialog instance, you can customize it by chaining the dialog’s functions (see Example Code). Then, you can show it to the user via the ShowDialog or WaitForDialog functions.



This dialog prompts the user to accept your Terms of Service and/or Privacy Policy. User must press the Accept button to close the dialog.

  • new TermsOfServiceDialog(): creates a new instance of this dialog
  • SetTermsOfServiceLink( string termsOfServiceLink ): sets the Terms of Service url
  • SetPrivacyPolicyLink( string privacyPolicyLink ): sets the Privacy Policy url



This dialog consists of a number of sections and a list of privacy policies that explain how the user’s data is collected and used. Each section of the dialog asks for a different event’s consent (e.g. ads personalization, analytics data collection). There are two types of sections: sections with a toggle and sections with a button. For SDKs that handle their consents in their own way, a button can be used (e.g. Unity Analytics handles the consent via a webpage). Otherwise, it is easier to manage a consent via a toggle.

  • new GDPRConsentDialog(): creates a new instance of this dialog
  • AddSectionWithToggle( string identifier, string title, string description = null ): adds a section with a toggle to the dialog. Here, identifier is a unique identifier for the particular event you are asking the consent for (e.g. you can use “Ads” for ads personalization). After the dialog is closed, you can pass the same identifier to the SimpleGDPR.GetConsentState function to check whether or not you have consent to collect user’s data for that event
  • AddSectionWithButton( ButtonClickDelegate onButtonClicked, string title, string description = null, string buttonLabel = null ): adds a section with a button to the dialog. When the button is clicked, onButtonClicked is invoked (ButtonClickDelegate takes no parameters)
  • AddPrivacyPolicy( string link ): adds a privacy policy to the list of privacy policies
  • AddPrivacyPolicies( params string[] links ): adds a number of privacy policies to the list of privacy policies

Example Code

The following code has two functions:

  • if you click the left half of the screen, a TermsOfServiceDialog is presented
  • if you click the right half of the screen, a GDPRConsentDialog is presented
private const string ADS_PERSONALIZATION_CONSENT = "Ads";

private void Start()
	Debug.Log( "Terms of Service has been accepted: " + SimpleGDPR.IsTermsOfServiceAccepted );
	Debug.Log( "Ads personalization consent state: " + SimpleGDPR.GetConsentState( ADS_PERSONALIZATION_CONSENT ) );
	Debug.Log( "Is user possibly located in the EEA: " + SimpleGDPR.IsGDPRApplicable );

private void Update()
	if( Input.GetMouseButtonDown( 0 ) )
		// Don't attempt to show a dialog if another dialog is already visible
		if( SimpleGDPR.IsDialogVisible )

		if( Input.mousePosition.x < Screen.width / 2 )
			// Show a dialog that prompts the user to accept the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy
			SimpleGDPR.ShowDialog( new TermsOfServiceDialog().
				SetTermsOfServiceLink( "https://my.tos.url" ).
				SetPrivacyPolicyLink( "https://my.policy.url" ),
				TermsOfServiceDialogClosed );
			StartCoroutine( ShowGDPRConsentDialogAndWait() );


private void TermsOfServiceDialogClosed()
	// We can assume that user has accepted the terms because
	// TermsOfServiceDialog dialog can only be closed via the 'Accept' button
	Debug.Log( "Accepted Terms of Service" );

private IEnumerator ShowGDPRConsentDialogAndWait()
	// Show a consent dialog with two sections (and wait for the dialog to be closed):
	// - Ads Personalization: its value can be changed directly from the UI,
	//   result is stored in the ADS_PERSONALIZATION_CONSENT identifier
	// - Unity Analytics: its value can't be changed from the UI since Unity presents its own UI
	//   to toggle Analytics consent. Instead, a button is shown and when the button is clicked,
	//   UnityAnalyticsButtonClicked function is called to present Unity's own UI
	yield return SimpleGDPR.WaitForDialog( new GDPRConsentDialog().
		AddSectionWithToggle( ADS_PERSONALIZATION_CONSENT, "Ads Personalization", "When enabled, you'll see ads that are more relevant to you. Otherwise, you will still receive ads, but they will no longer be tailored toward you." ).
		AddSectionWithButton( UnityAnalyticsButtonClicked, "Unity Analytics", "The collected data allows us to optimize the gameplay and update the game with new enjoyable content. You can see your collected data or change your settings from the dashboard.", "Open Analytics Dashboard" ).
		AddPrivacyPolicies( "https://policies.google.com/privacy", "https://unity3d.com/legal/privacy-policy", "https://my.policy.url" ) );

	// Check if user has granted the Ads Personalization permission
	if( SimpleGDPR.GetConsentState( ADS_PERSONALIZATION_CONSENT ) == SimpleGDPR.ConsentState.Yes )
		// You can show personalized ads to the user
		// Don't show personalized ads to the user

private void UnityAnalyticsButtonClicked()
	// Fetch the URL of the page that allows the user to toggle the Unity Analytics consent
	// "Unity Data Privacy Plug-in" is required: https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/add-ons/services/unity-data-privacy-plug-in-118922
#if !UNITY_5_3_OR_NEWER && !UNITY_5_2 // Initialize must be called on Unity 5.1 or earlier
	//	( url ) => SimpleGDPR.OpenURL( url ), // On WebGL, this opens the URL in a new tab
	//	( error ) => Debug.LogError( "Couldn't fetch url: " + error ) );
