Tracking code usage
The Sandbox Site does not include any tracking code that collects, stores or processes (directly or indirectly) any personal data. Though GTM4WP is active while you are consuming any content on the Sandbox Site, no valid Google Tag Manager container is loaded and not other tracking codes are enabled hence no user tracking is active.
