In recent years, the digital marketing and global AdTech industry have seen seismic changes, and online marketers are facing challenges under new privacy laws and regulations. Substantial restrictions on targeted advertising and cookie usage—coupled with the emergence of more stringent notice and consent obligations—have forced companies to carefully consider their options and compliance approach.

Discussion topics will include:

  • An explanation of cookies and other advertising technologies, and how they have shaped the internet today
  • AdTech Industry 101: sell side, buy side and real time bidding
  • Limitations on AdTech and an examination of privacy laws that regulate AdTech, including the EU GDPR and recent US state privacy laws
  • Implications, obstacles and solutions for the use of AdTech in regulated industries such as healthcare
  • Notice, consent and cookie banner “consent management platform” implementation
