|:47||A ruling by French data regulator CNIL found that a company called Vectaury was in violation of the GDPR in its Real-time Bidding advertising function. Vectaury said it had contracts that required partners who provided it data to obtain consent under the GDPR. CNIL ruled the contracts were not enough on their own and Vectaury must validate that consent was received before using the data. A consent chain using contracts is part fo the International Advertising Bureaus standard GDPR compliance regimen but IAB Europe said Vectaury likely did not implement it properly.||https://techcrunch.com/2018/11/20/how-a-small-french-privacy-ruling-could-remake-adtech-for-good/|
|Consumer agencies in Norway, the Netherlands, Poland and four other European Union countries allege Google tracks users in violation of the GDPR. While Google says location tracking is off by default, the complaints claim user consent is not freely obtained since users feel they must turn on location in order to make certain features work.||https://www.reuters.com/article/us-eu-google-privacy/european-consumer-groups-want-regulators-to-act-against-google-tracking-idUSKCN1NW0BS|
|THE AD SYSTEM DESCRIBED|
- Vectaury is a Demand-side platform or DSP. It sells its service to advertisers.
- The following process takes less than 100 milliseconds. An Advertiser makes a bid. Say it wants to reach 23-year-old females who recently shopped for a jigsaw but also have shown that they like the show Game of Thrones.
- A DSP like Vectaury handles this by bidding with an SSP for real-time placement at a publisher.
- Vectaury says it deletes 70% of the data it receives as part of this process but CNIL found it had data oon 67.6 million users derived from 32,708 mobile apps.
(This business is due in part to mimic the richness of desktop cookie data unavailable on mobile)
- Vectaury like others in the chain often rely on publishers, like the apps, to get consent for them.
- CNIL ruled that when apps asked users for consent to gather the data to make all that work they did not follow GDPR requirements for informed, free, specific, and unambiguous consent.
Vectaury did not inform what partners would receive data on the initial screen where you can click I accept. Users had to choose to "refine their preferences" and scroll down to find a link "see all partners"
Vectaury pre-ticked boxes for consent though recital 32 of the GDPR says “pre-ticked boxes or inactivity should not … constitute consent.”
Vecataury used different language on the consent screen than most use and CNIL found it imprecise.
Article 7 requires Vectaury to chow a chain of consent for each user by purpose. Vectaury had contracts with SSPs to get consent from people but CNIL said the "mere presence of a contractual clause" is not enough. Vectaury must validate the expressed consent.
|WHY THIS COULD BE PRECEDENT|
The IAB relies on consent flow by contract to make the long ad process work. If the contract part of this is not valid then the entire progrmmatic ad system would have to change significantly.
|WHY IT MIGHT NOT BE|
IAB Europe’s CEO, Townsend Feehan, told TechCrunch Vectaury may not have implemented the “Transparency & Consent Framework-compliant” consent management platform (CMP) framework correctly.
- In September, Armand Heslot, a privacy and security expert at the CNIL said on a panel in Cologne said that the IAB framework is “of course not perfect, it’s going in the right direction.”
|WHAT EFFECT WOULD IT HAVE IF IT IS?|
- Real Time Bids could only target general regional location and generic or aggregated data.
- DuckDuck Go makes use of Real Time Interests. Sell on what is being searched for at the momment not on what the user's profile indicates.
Johnny Ryan of private web browser Brave believes it could eliminate clickbait since it would be hard to buy an audience cheaper somewhere else. Ad prices would rise which could be good for publishers.
- Reduce dominance of Google and Facebook.

|Your story on the Wifi speeds being below mobile networks makes completely sense for South Africa. Broadband penetration is very low and also very costly. Most of it is still Adsl, with fiber being rolling out slowly. 4G Coverage on the other hand is far better. Our biggest networks, Vodacom and MTN achieved 85% and higher population coverage and they also signed roaming agreements with the smaller two networks to boost their coverage, this report makes complete sense. Data however remain very expensive on mobile, limiting the benefits of these speeds for the bulk of the population. |
