Risks in IAB Europe’s proposed consent mechanism • PageFair
Johnny Ryan points to problems with the upcoming collision of the EU's GDPR data protection regime and the desperate attempts by ad-tech companies to stick with their old business model:
<p>The ad-tech companies who drafted the IAB [Internet Advertising Bureau] Europe proposal claim that “publishers have full control over who they partner with, who they disclose to their users and who they obtain consent for.” But the IAB Europe documentation shows that adtech companies would remain entirely free to trade the personal data with their business partners if they wish. The proposed system would share a unique consent record “throughout the online advertising ecosystem”, every time an ad is loaded on a website:
<p>“the OpenRTB request [from a website to an ad exchange] will contain the entire DaisyBit [a persistent cookie], allowing a vendor to see which other vendors are an approved vendor or a publisher and whether they have obtained consent (and for which purposes) and which have not.”</p>

There would be no control over what happens to personal data once they enter the RTB system: “[adtech] vendors may choose not to pass bid requests containing personal data to other vendors who do not have consent”. This is a critical problem, because the overriding commercial incentive for many of the companies involved is to share as many data with as many partners as possible, and to share it with parent companies that run data brokerages. In addition, publishers are expected to trust that JavaScript in “ad creatives” is not dropping trackers, even though no tools to police this are proposed here.

IAB Europe is asking publishers and brands to expose themselves to the legal risk of routinely sharing these personal data with several thousand adtech companies. What publishers and brands need is a “trust no one” approach. IAB Europe is proposing a “trust everyone” approach. Indeed, the proposed system looks like the GDPR’s description of a data breach…</p>

Someone's going to be in trouble with this.
