Excel format reference
The Excel export of a report provides detailed information about the compliance status of a given website or application. It includes both high-level metrics (compliance and security scores, privacy policy, user consent information, etc.) as well as low-level data (HTTP requests, list of cookies, dependencies between domains, etc.).
An Excel file can be generated in the Didomi Console by clicking on the "Excel" button available on every report. The Excel file includes all the information for the report period.

What is a tracking tag?
What we call a tracking tag is an HTTP request that is used by a vendor for tracking/targeting purposes. For instance, we try to identify all the requests that adblockers would block. There is no exact definition of what constitutes a tag and there is surely no perfect way to identify them.
We do our best to classify requests as tags when possible to get an estimate of how many tags are embedded on webpages. We use rules like: the format of the HTTP response (image, JavaScript), the size of the response, the query-string parameters, the domain, etc.
