Online Tracking Update: How Will Consumer Privacy Change Marketing In 2013?

27 November 2012

European consumers are increasingly aware of cookies and other online tracking activities and are becoming increasingly concerned about their potential affect on privacy. European law now regulates this space via the ePrivacy Directive (i.e. "Cookie Directive"), which sets standards for the level of notice and control that websites must provide consumers with when using cookies or other forms of tracking technology.

So how has this law affected the online ecosystem and what does it mean for marketers?

Are self-regulatory initiatives led by industry associations like the DAA and EDAA addressing public concern on this issue?

Will most consumers opt-out from tracking activities when offered the choice or can notice and control mechanisms actually help websites better engage their visitors?

In this live webcast TRUSTe and Osborne Clarke will unveil their recent research examining consumers' perceptions in the UK and other key EU markets around online tracking and privacy.
Tune in live where we’ll reveal the surprising findings to help you as marketers learn how effective privacy can help you engage visitors and drive conversions whilst still ensuring compliance.
