How marketers are navigating GDPR compliance creatively

With GDPR finally enforced, marketers are now legally bound to handle, process and store personal data much more securely and transparently.

The regulations are putting consumers back in the driving seat by giving them control over their data, and the marketing communications they receive as a result of sharing that data.

GDPR has brought us Heath Robinson websites and Kafkaesque UX

Assess the following sentence for signs of rationality:

"Your browser is currently blocking 3rd party cookies. Many companies use 3rd party cookies to remember that you have opted out, so you will need to enable them if you want all of the opt outs on this page to work."

Me neither.

Why customer data platforms may have a more limited future post-GDPR & Cambridge Analytica

Customer data platforms (CDPs) have had a meteoric rise in the technology hype cycle.

Promising a 360-degree view of the customer across all touchpoints, CDPs promised enterprises a place where all information about customers and their interaction with brands would be kept in individual profiles, rather than all the silos that exist today. CDPs have suggested that data management platforms (DMPs) will soon be encompassed by the CDP, whereby paid media data and owned media data will be completely connected.

consent management

What is a consent management platform, and are they needed?

In the lead-up to the implementation of the GDPR on 25th May 2018, you might have noticed a new piece of technology cropping up in the adtech ecosystem: the consent management platform (CMP).

Under the much more stringent requirements of the GDPR, companies are proactively obtaining consent from EU-based users to have their data processed by advertisers and marketers if they are to be, for example, shown targeted advertising on a website.

The value & future of second-party data in the age of GDPR

You’ve heard of first- and third-party data, its much more famous siblings. But how much do you know about second-party data?

Second-party data is a much newer entrant to the marketing and advertising landscape than the first- and third-party varieties, and relatively little is known about it as a result.

GDPR: Which websites are blocking visitors from the EU?

On the 25th May 2018, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect.

Ripple effects from the new regulation were immediately felt across the internet – and not just in the form of a sudden dearth of unwanted emails arriving in people’s inboxes.

receipt

How does the GDPR impact e-receipts?

If you’ve shopped in Schuh, Topshop, or Dorothy Perkins recently, you might recall being asked if you wanted an e-receipt at the point of purchase.

This means the option to have your receipt emailed to you instead of given in paper form.
