Manage third party data sharing

Give your app users a choice about how, and when, their data is shared with third parties. 

In Adjust, you can disable, enable, and re-enable data sharing with third parties for statistics purposes. This lets you continue to gain valuable data insights, while supporting your user’s data sharing preferences.

If a user chooses not to share their data with marketing partners, the Adjust backend will flag this. Then, although they continue to be tracked in Adjust, no partner callbacks are sent for that user, no data is shared with SANs for attribution, and they are not included in Audience Builder lists.

You can send Adjust a user’s decision through a server-to-server integration or directly through the SDK.

Adjust SDK requirements

To notify Adjust of a user’s data sharing preference, your developer can configure the Adjust SDK to send us the required information. Ensure you have the minimum required SDK version and follow the instructions in our GitHub README chapters.
