The report will contain information related to the shipment (Mail sent, Mail delivered, Click, Openings), and a specific detail of the clicks on the links in the DEM. For a correct count of clicks and impressions, must be replaced the anti-caching parameter  [timestamp] with distinctive Italiaonline primary key <%${ecm:random(1,1000000000)}%>    ecm:process=”false”.
Ex: <IMG SRC=”https://…….;ord=<%${ecm:random(1, 1000000000)}%>;dc_lat=;dc_rdid=;tag_for_child_directed_treatment=;tfua=;gdpr=${GDPR};gdpr_consent=${GDPR_CONSENT_755}?” BORDER=”0″ HEIGHT=”1″ WIDTH=”1″ ALT=”Advertisement” ecm:process=”false”/>
