Hi,

 

I would like to know if it's posible (and legal) to send and save the User Agent from the user browser in a custom dimension of GAP.

 

Here and example of the information sent: 

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/59.0.3071.115 Safari/537.36

 

Saludos!

Hey Ismael, 

 

Data like browser, OS, etc. shouldn't be considered as Personal Identifying Information. Make sure not to include anything like email, exact Geo locations, names, etc. 

 

As far as i can tell the following information should be fine to store. Just make sure nothing inside of it could be used to identify a specific individual.
