Does the EU user consent policy apply when using Google Analytics without Advertising features?

Hey Ali,

I believe it does, Brian Clifton has written quite a bit about this.

This is the first of many posts:

Most sites use a headache bar at the top that states they are using cookies and by using the site you consent... etc.

That said, I would defer to Brian.

Best,
