Please ensure that the web server provides sufficient resources for reliable and high-performance provision of the JavaScript, even in the event of peak usage of your digital offering.

INFOnline cannot provide any support in solving problems that are caused by the delivery of the JavaScript hosted by you.


In deviation from the standard tag integration (see document "INFOnline Integration Guide SZM Tag"), the path to the JavaScript must be adapted accordingly when integrating it into your website:

Integration in the HEAD Note: The call in the HEAD area must not contain a line break.

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://<your domain>/<your path>/iam.js"> </script>


Calling the JavaScript in the BODY of your website corresponds to the standard implementation as described in the document "INFOnline Integration Guide SZM Tag".

INFOnline will verify the implementation of the integration and, provided there are no objections from the measurement system's point of view, will issue a release for the integration.
