What does the DEN_A/G pin on the LSM9DS1 actually do?

The title really says it all.

The pin description for the LSM9DS1 says that the DEN_A/G pin is the Accelerometer/Gyroscope Data Enable. This sounds important, but I can't see anywhere in the datasheet that explains what you're meant to do with it. Can I just tie it to 3.3V, since I want data to always be enabled? Or tie it to ground? Or maybe to the CS_A/G pin, so that it only takes readings when I'm not actually communicating with it?

The only thing I can't do is connect it to a microcontroller pin, because I've run out of those.

Thanks for any help
