Usercentrics’ Senior Privacy Expert, Tilman Harmeling was interviewed by Carsten Sander, innovation and adtech influencer and host of BurdaForward’s podcast Datalicious.


Episode 9, season 3 of the podcast centered around “The Privacy Paradox” in the context of data sharing and user behavior. From optimizing consent rates to what users expect from their data, the conversation covered all facets.


In a world increasingly driven by data, the podcast discussion focused on how growing awareness of privacy is affecting online marketing and digital advertising, from the day-to-day challenges to the long-term strategic shifts. While users are generally reluctant to share their data, their behavior often contradicts this, as seen with the use of smart home systems and smartphones.

They closed the conversation with some thoughts on the current regulatory developments and predictions for how consent practices may evolve in the future.
