Consent management: Commanders Act receives IAB compliance

By Annabelle Laudano August 20, 2018 | 353 0

With the GDPR introducing a new trust contract for personal data, all the attention is being directed towards how to manage consent. By awarding its compliance, IAB aims to speed up compliance across the entire online ad industry.

Everywhere, for everyone with no distinction for context. For a long time, online advertising focused more on maximising display coverage (total impressions) than ensuring the message was relevant to the user’s journey and identified interests. But that was before. Nowadays, thanks to a more mature market, digital marketing managers have taken to measuring the efficiency of every activation (finally reconciled) throughout the cross-device journey. In theory, this is great news. However, in practice, the industry’s ‘abuse’ of this data left legislators no other choice than to step in. That is how we came to have the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

In this ecosystem, Commanders Act was unable to wait until 25th May 2018 for the General Data Protection Regulation to protect its users’ data, and developed its Privacy module as early as 2012. It is with this same mindset that Commanders Act has joined the list of Global Vendors and Consent Management Platforms that participate in the Transparency & Content Framework. Read on to learn more.

What is the purpose of the Transparency & Consent Framework?

Launched on 24th April 2018, IAB Europe’s GDPR Transparency and Consent Framework has one simple aim: help every party in the digital advertising chain conform to the EU’s GDPR when processing personal data or accessing personal and non-personal data on a user’s device.
