Filters using Custom Dimensions

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

If I create a custom dimension which sends the company name of the user to GA, would this still adhere to GA terms of service?

 

Thanks!

Hi Tadas,

I think you are fine to do this. Unless all of the companies are one person companies, I would not expect this to fall under PII.

And section 7 here:

That said, the name of this post is "Filters using Custom Dimensions" and if you are hoping to create a view filter based on this data, you won't be able to do that. However, the custom dimension would be available as a secondary dimension and for custom reports.

Hope that helps,

Best,
