GDPR Permission API


This API provides capabilities to find whether a customer has given GDPR consent for a url, or to store such information to Omeda’s database.

General Technical Requirements

HTTP Headers

The HTTP header must contain the following elements:

a unique id provided to you by Omeda to access your data. The request will fail without a valid id.
a content type supported by this resource. See Supported Content Types for more details. If omitted, the default content type is application/json.

Content Type

If omitted, the default content type is application/json.


JSON is the preferred data exchange format, because it is lightweight and, in most cases, faster to process and utilizes less bandwidth. There are many available open-source JSON libraries available. See for details.

Supported HTTP Methods

  1. GET : For looking up GDPR consent for a customer.
  2. POST : For storing GDPR consent data for a customer and url.

Base Resource URI

Note: customer can be found either by customerId or anonymousId depending on which URI is used, and both GET and POST use the same URI pattern:


is the abbreviation for the brand
the encrypted or non-encrypted Omeda customer ID for the customer
the Olytics anonymous id for the customer

Field Definition

The following tables describe the data elements that can be sent to this API. In addition to the below elements, a SubmissionId element will also be returned with all responses. This is a unique identifier for the web services response. It can be used to cross-reference the response in Omeda’s database.
