LEARN MORE ABOUT THE EARLIER NYC MEETING
In a unique effort in January, more than 45 experts in policy, media, advertising and technology convened to start developing a new online model that protects consumer privacy, improves brand safety, combats ad fraud and supports journalism.
This April 24-25 in Washington, D.C., meeting will focus on action steps to move the project forward:
- Review and approve a privacy statement for adoption by publishers;
- Discuss and approve plans for a tech stack including a federated single sign-on feature individual publishers can implement and an opt-in user data exchange;
- Detail specific rules and processes for the governing nonprofit and for entities participating in the ecosystem (advertisers, publishers, etc).
- Get an update on Mozilla’s testing of its global consent manager (GCM) browser plug-in tool.
