Short answer, yes.
Long answer, whether or not you use Super Stealth doesn’t change anything in your GDPR compliance. In other words, whether or not you respect Ad Blockers is not part of GDPR laws.
While it might seem invasive to bypass a visitor’s Ad Blockers. Your website is still passing the same data to Google Analytics as it would with visitors not using an Ad Blocker. Whether or not your site respects Privacy Laws, is entirely up to its configuration, e.g. the usage of Cookie Notices, anonymization of IP’s, etc.
No. Unfortunately tihs data is lost. If a visitor enters your site with an Ad Blocker enabled, the visit isn’t registered anywhere. Meaning, there was never any data to begin with.
Yes, it does. All requests to Google Analytics’ ec.js and linkid.js are redirected to Google Analytics’ servers through your server. Just like Super Stealth does with the /collect calls.
Yes, but you might have to modify your Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) settings. Your CDN should be allowed to request resources from yourdomain.com and vice versa. Also, when Plugin Handling is set to Super Stealth Upgrade the super-stealth.php script (and additional plugins, e.g. ec.js) will still be served from your own server, because a CDN can only serve static content. A CDN can’t execute dynamic content (PHP) and the plugins need to be on the same server as the super-stealth.php script.
Yes. CloudFlare manages your DNS, so no additional configuration is required!
No, for various reasons listed here.
