Display a limited ad

This is an example of using the Google Publisher Tag (GPT) library to request and render a limited ad. Limited ads provide publishers a way to serve ads in the absence of consent for the use of cookies or other local identifiers. Learn more about the features and limitations of limited ads in the Google Ad Manager help center.

You can instruct GPT to request limited ads in two different ways:

In order to manually control limited, you must load GPT from the limited ads URL. The version of GPT served from this URL contains additional safeguards against accessing client-side storage by default. To accomplish this, certain library operations are delayed until after the first call to display(), leading to a slight decrease in performance compared to the standard version of GPT.

You can't manually control limited ads on a per-request basis when GPT is loaded from the standard URL. When you load GPT from the standard URL, all calls to setPrivacySettings({ limitedAds: ... }) are ignored and the library may attempt to access client-side storage at any time. This allows GPT to more effectively optimize the order of library operations. For example, GTP can perform encrypted signal collection earlier, increasing the likelihood that gathered signals will be included in every ad request.
