Data Privacy Context Matters


The ability to collect consumer data online has revolutionised digital advertising, enabling advertisers and publishers to better engage their audiences. The recent expansion of data privacy regulations from Europe and the U.S., as well as the shift away from cookie-based targeting, is perceived to have a negative impact to the digital advertising industry.

But how do consumers feel about their data being used to target them online? What do they prefer – and how can advertisers best achieve results based on these findings?

IAS undertook research with 526 UK consumers to find out how they feel being targeted online, the use of the data that is used to do this, and how advertisers can continue to achieve results in a cookie-less world.
