During the Corona crisis, tech has been a blessing in many ways facilitating working from home and staying in touch with family and friends. And tech helps us keep track of the virus. However, there has been a lot of discussion about the question of whether the tracking and tracing apps in use in various countries all over the world are putting our privacy at stake.
In Europe, the General Data Partner Regulation (GDPR) has been in place for two years now making cookie banners a must for all websites and apps that are using marketing and tracking technologies. The general rule is: Without a valid user consent his or her data may no longer be used for advertising purposes, resulting in reduced ad performance and therefore less ad revenue. A Consent Management Platform has become must in order to collect, manage and document consent in a legally compliant way.
Today, we are going to explore what the talk about tracking and tracing apps is all about and why the crucial question is how the data is being stored.
We will then discuss the concept of Consent Management Platforms and learn how website and app operators can keep their Opt-in rates high whilst being legally compliant.
Last but not least, we’ll take a look at what the future holds for Consent and Preference Management and what all website and app operators must prepare for staring now.
