If someone saves a web page on their computer and accesses at a later date, all of the tagging will fire.

 

This includes URL which reflects the drive path of the user's computer. In a large number of cases we can see PII data in reports.

 

Do we have any resolution that prevents Adobe collecting URL in these cases 

 

Help is appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

@gokula - There are probably a number of ways to address this...

  • Use a VISTA rule to drop any requests where the URL indicates it's a local file (file:) rather than a hosted web page (http:, https:). Note that there is a cost associated with this approach.
  • If you're using Launch, place conditions on your Analytics rule(s) that prevent the call(s) from firing if document.location.protocol is NOT "file:".
  • If adding conditions to rules is too much work (lots of rules!), or you're not using a tag manager, check the document.location.protocol value in s.doPlugins. If it is "file:", abort the call using s.abort.
