GDPR Advertising Compliance

What is GDPR and How to Ensure Your Advertising Campaigns Are Compliant

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individual citizens of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to individuals over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

​There is a continued push for a quality and safe advertising environment. Programmatic continues to be a catalyst for delivering brand campaigns at scale. In light of GDPR, stakeholders are looking to use more first party data, private marketplaces and contextual targeting.

Smaller ad tech producers or ad-based companies in the US have released statements about their inability to comply and resulting move to block all ads from EU users, while Google and Facebook were able to actually expand their online ad footprint.

​While consumers residing in the United States have less restrictions than EU residents, the tide is shifting and many states are now calling for similar data and advertising precautions to be implemented. Falling on the heels of the GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act may mark the beginning of stricter U.S. consumer privacy protections. Additionally, all fifty states have enacted legislation to protect consumers’ private information, but some states have more stringent laws and penalties than others.
