Create a custom purpose [NEW FLOW]

Once you arrive at the Regulations step of creating your consent notice, you'll need to select the vendors to be added to your notice, for each regulation covered. You will then link the vendors to purposes.

Didomi gives you the option to create your own purposes. This is useful if you do not wish to link one or more of your vendors to the IAB TCF purposes. Note, even non-IAB vendors in the Didomi database are linked to IAB TCF purposes by default.
