Take C.A.R.E, this year’s motto, applies both to the activities and visitors at DMEXCO 2018, but also to the GDPR. DMEXCO is the meeting place of every important decision-maker in marketing and innovation as well as the digital economy, and takes the topic of data security to heart by cooperating with Usercentrics for transparent and secure data protection. The Munich-based technology company provides a Consent Management Platform (CMP), which handles the entire cycle of GDPR-compliant Consent Management for DMEXCO.

The UsercentricsCMP ensures GDPR-compliance by obtaining and documenting the consents of visitors to the DMEXCO website. Using the fingerprint icon in the top menu bar, users can manage their privacy settings at any time and, for example, retrieve more detailed information about the processing of their data. In addition to that, each user receives a so-called Consent ID, with which this information can also be validated in the Usercentrics Consent database.

Beingone of the most important events for digital marketing and ad technology decision makers, it is important for the DMEXCO convention to set a good example in terms of privacy and data protection.This is why they decided in recent months to partner with Usercentrics.

Mischa Rürup, Founder and CEO of Usercentrics, says: “DMEXCO has a weighted voice in the industry as a platform and community for digital decision-makers and opinion leaders. Our partnership sends out an important signal and makes it clear how seriously the privacy privacy of the user is taken at DMEXCO. We are pleased to be able to support DMEXCO and its website visitors on these important topics.”

The feedback so far has been positive: especially the fingerprint in the menu bar is well received by users and is rated as progressive and innovative. Together with Usercentrics, DMEXCO shows how consent management can be implemented safely and easily.

Dr. Dominik Matyka, Chief Advisor at DMEXCO, explains: “We do not just want to talk about privacy at DMEXCO, we also want to practice it ourselves. That is why Consent Management plays an important role in organizing the convention. Visitors of our website and visitors of our DMEXCO community are important to us, that’s why transparent Consent Management is key. With Usercentrics, we have found the right partner for this.”
